In the shadow of the moon

I’ve been using anydvd for about 2 years now and never had a miss. But this dvd didn’t even let anydvd read it. It works fine to watch the movie, but when I use anydvd I can’t even watch the movie. It makes it so the dvd doesn’t show up on the disc drive. The company is Lionsgate Thinkfilm. Anybody else have this problem.

  1. Use Anydvd beta: click

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

  1. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click “default”. Click “ok”.

  2. 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.

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

a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
b) Put the problematic original movie dvd in your burner. 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 “” (or something similar; see step f)
i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like (in other words, look for the paperclip after clicking “quote” or when creating a new thread)
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"
n) Close the window. When you submit reply, or submit a new thread, the .zip file will be attached automatically for us to take a look at

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?

Tried all of the above. Can’t get a log cause the disc shuts down my dvd player when I try using anydvd. It makes it act like there is no dvd in the player. Crazy…I have never seen anything like this before. It won’t let me even play that dvd until I reboot the computer without anydvd active!!!

I have not personally tried this title yet, but I will try and get some information for you. Please be patient Slysoft are always updating their products to be the best possible. I am sure if this disc is a problem, they know about it and are working on a fix. In the mean time I will see if this title is available near me.

This title was released last month so you know alan1476

Thankyou Dr Who. I will check the BJ Wholesale Club near me, also Walmart, they usually have good titles really cheap.

I honestly think it is a repackaged dvd for sale that may have scratches on it though the past month roughly there encryptions have mainly been CSS in the US lately. Could be just a bad disc as well.

You may be right if its a month old and we have had no complaints yet. This is the first one on this movie, so it may very well be a poorly pressed disc.

I could not find the disc on sales anywhere. I will check other sources. :cool:
