    Default Came across a dvd that can't be copied

    I have been copying dvd's for a while now without any problems up until this point. The puzzling thing is that it is an older DVD. It is Mash Season 1. It is encrypted and can't be copied. Wierd thing is that I had no problem copying season 4. Does anybody know why this won't work or if there are things out there that Slysoft hasn't been able to break yet?

    1. Use Anydvd 6.3.1.6 beta: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showpost.ph...14&postcount=1

    You may need to reboot after installing if prompted to do so.

    2. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "default". Click "ok".

    3. If you use DVDShrink, Nero Recode, or programs that generally can't handle structural protections, right-click on the fox icon on your toolbar and select "Rip video-dvd to Hard Disk". Choose your source and destination paths. Click "Copy", and wait for Anydvd ripper to finish. You can then import that rip into whatever program you want. This is an important step if the original disc contains structural protection.

    You don't need to do this if you own Clonedvd or are planning to make a backup with Clonecd.


    4. Use the latest Clonedvd: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showpost.ph...11&postcount=1

    5. Follow the steps from this link in order: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=476 (follow them step by step)

    If you're using +R DL blank discs, I recommend using Clonecd: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=327

    6. If you still have problems, then . . .

    A) a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original movie dvd 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) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"


    B) State the full a)error message(s) you encountered (click "details"), b)tell us 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?
    My responses 1) presume you own the original retail disc you are attempting to backup, 2) tend to represent myself only, and 3) do not necessarily represent the views of SlySoft nor its developers. I do not work for SlySoft.

    It wasn't real clear what actually fixed your problem, can you be more specific? Was it an AnyDvd update or something else?

    Yes, I'm curious, as well.
