May I preface my problem with the fact that I have been successfully running AnyDVD for the last four years. During that time I have never had a disc that couldn't be scanned by AnyDVD, until now. When I put in a copy of 'The Essential Clash' ISBN D-7389-0303-5 a Sony Music Entertainment C 2003 inner ring markings say DVDL - 081730A1, AnyDVD locks up (the balloon stays on forever) and does not scan the disc. Additionally, if I try a different disc right away AnyDVD appears to have been corrupted and I have to remove the program and reinstall to make it work properly again. I am unable to 'create a logfile' so there appears to be no way to document the problem as suggested in the FAQ forum. The Clash disc plays in two different stand alone players and will play on my computer if I "disable' AnyDVD after I reinstall. I'm not worried about a fix for this, as my antiquated and outdated DVD Decrypter program read the disc without a hitch. I just thought it was odd that this is the only disc I have ever encountered to beat AnyDVD.
