alan!!!! you should know better than to include so little information!
version numbers (although i trust you're really a the "latest" it's always good to knwo for sure!)
also, if you could post the anydvd info window and whatever exact error messages you get in any and ALL programs that you've tried.
if you think it's a new protection, you know the drill...disable anydvd, zip up the IFOs and shoot them over to slysoft for analysis.
now, on to the most important question: why are you trying to preserve a copy of HOSTEL? if anything, all copies of this disc should be destroyed. what a sorry excuse for a movie
