Zootopia DVD - AnyDVD not fixing intentional read errors/glitches

    EDIT: Resolved - Turns out VLC is not playing the disc and ripped ISO back properly. I installed PowerDVD and it all plays back perfectly.

    Original Post:
    I purchased Zootopia Ultimate Collectors Edition (3D), but need to make a backup of the DVD so I can keep a copy in my car for our upcoming road-trip. I hate using the originals. Anyway, the DVD seems to have intentional errors on it so as to screw up copying of the disc. The disc plays back fine in any DVD player. This is extremely frustrating and in the past, my lifetime license to AnyDVD was up to the task of taking care of this. I uninstalled the old, registered copy and installed the latest Redfox version and it is NOT helping to get past this issue and to allow me to make a legitimate copy of the movie.

    Can anyone offer suggestions as to how to help get this disc added to the AnyDVD database and corrected? Or is there a setting I can try? Thank you in advance!

    Thanks for the info. Here are my findings...

    Title of DVD Disc: ZOOTOPIA - Origin: USA

    AnyDVD set to Default... Check!

    DVD Playback and CloneDVD copy - Video freezes during playback, some audio pauses, even after receiving a replacement 3D/BD/DVD set from Amazon.

    The movie will duplicate to disc and ISO using CloneDVD, however the freezing and audio glitches are present in the copy, identical to those while watching via VLC.

    Attached is the log...

    If you have PDVD installed try that to see if repeatable there. It could very well be VLC mishandling it.

    Yes. Play the DVD in PowerDVD with AnyDVD running. Does it work? Or Not?

    I installed PowerDVD and with AnyDVD running, it does indeed playback correctly.

    No it's not, check the anydvd status window. Region: 0, not set.

    EXIT anydvd completely so the tray icon is NOT running, then go into Windows device manager. Surprise!

    Well, it turns out that VLC is the reason for my playback issues. I will keep PowerDVD installed and use it to test playback from now on. Thank you to everyone for your assistance.

    No surprise there, it's not exactly a standard dvd player. The main thing is the problem is fixed.
