"I guess I'll stick to DVD43, works like a charm and never failed me.
Bye Bye AnyDVD..."
Don't know why you want to do that. IMHO AnyDVD is a better product,it always keeps up with the ever changing copy protection.
Are you using the latest version 184.108.40.206?
You don't say what movie you are trying to copy, have you tried other DVD's with the same failures?
You said you re-installed, is it safe to say you uninstalled the program making sure the Slysoft directory was deleted, then installing again.
If you have the CSS keys activated, is the movie you are having problems with listed, delete the movie from the CSS keys, make sure AnyDVD is running, then insert the DVD again so it can do a fresh read.
There is nothing wrong with AnyDVD, it most certainly is something wrong with what you're doing. Have a little more patience and try to resolve it, you will be rewarded for your efforts.
