Since Anydvd beta, things have changed. This is what you do now (please do both):
(Thanks to Olli for writing the original steps.)

1. Send an email to Slysoft and include

b) Put the problematic original disc in your optical drive/reader. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
d) Select "Create Logfile"
e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
g) Windows Explorer will open. You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip" (or something similar; see step f)
h) Write a an email to support(at)slysoft.com (replace (at) with @). Name your problem, try to identify the disc (e.g, Little Black Book, R2, UK), the UPC number if possible (below the barcode on the package).

State the a)full error message(s) you encountered (click "details"), b)tell them what program(s) you were using when you received the error message(s), and c) describe in detail what you were doing when you received the error message(s). What problem are you having exactly?
