But I can convert the contents to MKV using MAKEMKV... and also open the disc with Power DVD. The log is there. Any thoughts? If I were to guess I would say this DVD is not defective, it's just that AnyDVD is not recognizing its encryption. I also noticed this error in MAKEMKV, while trying for the 1st time: https://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=961 Note: this DVD is from Brazil, region 4, NTSC. Fullscreen edition, I believe it was released in September 2004. The disc is very old.
