I think I know the answer but thought I’d post the question before throwing in the towel. I am able to read all other discs in The Hobbit and LOTR and ripped except for unexpected journey extended edition. Returned the disc, got a new one and same issue. I’m assuming it’s a bad press of the disc (Best Buy Canada). They won’t let me return it and don’t wanna spend the coin ordering from Amazon to see if that would work. Any other ideas on how to possibly get the disc to work (fancy cleaning methods etc). sorry should have added I’m running the latest beta of AnyDVD and trying it on the LG WH16NS40 fw 1.02 (originally a WH16NS60 that was downgraded using the ASUS ODD_fw_changer) and also tried on an LG 16NU50 fw 1.01 thanks again!
