    Default "Drive E: is not ready!" when trying to copy DVD protected with "ProtectDISC"

    I'm new to AnyDVD. I've been trying very hard to copy a DVD that's protected with ProtectDISC (by www.protect-software.com) to my hard drive. This is not a video DVD; it's a computer program executable saved on the DVD. I simply want to copy it to my hard drive and put the original DVD away.

    When I right-click on the AnyDVD system tray icon, select make an image, then click the "Copy DVD" button, I get this error message from AnyDVD Ripper:
    Drive E: is not ready!

    Please see attached screenshot and kindly advise.

    Thank you!

    Depending on what version of ProtectDisc it is, you might be able to get a back-up with CloneCD. If that doesn't work, Game Jackal might work.
    - AnyDVD HD, CloneBD, CloneCD, CloneDVD, CloneDVDmobile, Game Jackal
    - Plextor PX760A
    - Taiyo Yuden Premium 8x -R, Verbatim 6x +R DL

    MMDavis, thank you for you lightening-fast reply! Did you mean CloneCD or CloneDVD? This is a DVD...

    I made an ISO using CloneCD but the ProtectDISC protection still complained it was not the original DVD.

    I downloaded GameJackal and am quite intimidated on how to even begin using it. If both AnyDVD and CloneCD didn't work, would GameJackal really do it?...

    Please advise.

    thats because iso is USELESS for making a copy of a protected disk

    Instead of an iso, can you back up the DVD to a DVD and will the back-up work.

    You can also try Alcohol 120 software. If I remember correctly it has option for protect disc data type.
    If you fail to plan...you plan to fail would you not agree..Think about it
