AnyDVD seemingly not working at all

I installed Clone DVD and it apparently worked well on an old DVD I have. Then I tried on a new DVD and it was naturally CSS protected. I proceeded to install AnyDVD - and tried again - but nothing has changed - I am still informed that Clone DVD cannot copy the DVD since it is CSS protected.

What can I be doing wrong ?
And more importantly - how do I check what the problem is ?
And most important - how do I fix the problem ?

After you place a CSS protected DVD in, hover you mouse over the fox and tell us what the pop up bubble says

I am having the same problem. I have one dvd drive and one cd-rom. When I hover over the fox it says On:1 Off:0 Empty:1

Mine says:

AnyDVD 3.3.2.1
On:2, Off:0, Empty:0

I guess the 2 is because I have an empty DVD-R in the writerdrive

Did you reboot after installation? ':slight_smile:

He did, otherwise he would see On:0, Off:0, Empty:0

Seems like I was still sleeping. :wink:

Sorry.

So - any ideas what to check next ?

Okay, I have the strange feeling everything is working, but you didn’t notice… :slight_smile:

Okay, at first, remove ALL media from the drives. Check the tray, it must say On:0, Off:0, Empty:2

Exit all burning apps, rippers, tools, bla, bla…

Insert a CSS protected DVD. Watch the little fox. It must change colour. Check the tray, it must say On:1, Off:0, Empty:1

Open the drive directory, copy one of the VOB (VTS_01_1.VOB) files to your desktop. (Drag it over)

If you get an error now, AnyDVD is seriously confused and failed to authenticate the drive.

Remove the DVD, use PowerDVD or WinDVD to open the copy of VTS_01_1.VOB. Do you see anything useful?

If yes, AnyDVD did its job nicely, and CloneDVD is confused.

If not, uninstall AnyDVD. Check for lost parts, especially if you used a loader / keygen / crack or something.
Check, if Windows\System32\Drivers\AnyDVD.sys really was deleted. Best thing to do is to reboot now before reinstalling.

Now install the newest version of AnyDVD and reboot again.

If it still doesn’t work, wait for the next update…

Good luck!

You forgot to mention, which OS you are running. I have assumed Windows XP.

Thank’s for your advice. I will follow your instructions and keep my fingers crossed :wink:

The info about the PC is:

Windows XP Professional - danish version

Medion PC (Aldi’s November PC)

Medion Motherboard
Intel P4 3Ghx processor
1.5 GB Ram
Pioneer DVD and DVD writer (As far as I recall)

I am not sure what did the trick - I HAD installed and uninstalled and reinstalled a couple of times - but this time it worked.

So thank you Olli for the help

Voodoo. You must believe… :slight_smile:

I’m having the same exact problem… I’ve tried reinstalling several times now and it still doesn’t work. Any other suggestions?

Just have to get this in.

I downloaded the trial version of CloneDVD and AnyDVD, copied a CSS encrypted DVD (99 minutes original) completely, with all menus, etc.

I’d never burned a DVD before - ever.

First I registered here at cdfreaks, read some of the articles, and decided to try CloneDVD and AnyDVD. That took about 20 minutes, and was the longest wait I had!

After both were downloaded and I rebooted, it took me exactly 38 minutes to open the software, familiarize, and produce the full copy.

38 MINUTES!! By a real raw newbie!! :slight_smile: :slight_smile: :eek: :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

Yes I am impressed with CloneDVD and AnyDVD!

Granted, I’m not a PC novice by any means, but I’ve burned a total of three CDs in my life and this was a first try at a DVD.

The only reason I haven’t purchased yet is that I’m waiting for a new billing cycle on my credit card! Tomorrow, CloneDVD and AnyDVD, you’re mine!!! :iagree: :bow: :iagree: :bow: :iagree:

Thanks, Olli, for this software!!!

I have had the same thing with my any dvd on newer dvd’s
I played with it for 2 day’s fixed it!! I set my dvd player drive to region1 and now all works!

To get ANYDVD to work go to setting and click safe mode.
