AnyDVD (HD) not reading DVD

Discussion in 'AnyDVD' started by utenteanonimo64, Dec 9, 2009.

  1. I am having trouble with one DVD. I returned a copy and now I get the same problem with another copy so I doubt it's a dirty or damaged disc.
    I have checked that the region is set up in the drive as suggested in the message box and it is; it's region 2 (which also matches the DVD region).
    I had the problem with and I am now trying but I get the same result.

    Any help appreciated. Log attached. Thanks!

    That's a read error typically indicating a defective disc--or your drive is dying.

    1. Clean the disc

    2. Try using another drive to read the disc

    3. Click on the red fox icon in your system tray. Navigate to "video-dvd"-->"settings". Under AI scanner, select "always enabled". Click "ok".If that doesn't work the problem is a defective disc or drive. Remember to click the "default" button in Anydvd (then click "ok") after testing.

  3. Thanks for your answer. When I say "I doubt" I suppose I mean that I haven't reached a definitive conclusion :)
    I get the same error with AI scanner always enabled. Unfortunately I haven't got another drive to test, however the drive I am using is just a few months old so I want to assume (hope) that the drive is not dying yet and I will try to get a third copy of the disc... Let's see what happens...

    Get another drive first. A dvd burner doesn't cost much.
  5. Mine is a BluRay burner so it costs much! Anyhow I got my third copy of the DVD and it worked this time. I supposed the manifacturing quality of these DVDs is not very high.

    Most troubles here usually boil down to a bad DVD.

    When a title truely arises that AnyDVD can not handle:
    1) This board lights up like a Christmas Tree.
    2) James says "Ahhh yes - I see the problem!"
    3) A new patch appears soon.

    It's not unusual for these manufacturing issues to crop up. There have been various titles in the past (if I recall correctly, Vantage Point and 21) where several users reported having to do more than one exchange at the store until they got one that didn't give read errors.

    Manufacturers and studios try to cut costs and look for any way they can to cut corners, and sometimes, this is the result.

    They want Play, not Read

    Yes, that is my experience. The record is three trips to the store for a DVD that would READ well enough.

    Keep in mind, the studios want the DVD to "play" and are not unhappy when Windows can not "read" it.

    I suspect they've trimmed their process that some DVDs in a run are simply not readable for a copy.
