Problem with 'When a stranger calls' R1 DVD

Hey Everyone:

I am trying to backup my recently purchased copy of “When a Stranger Calls.” Its a R1 disc. When I go to copy it, using Clone DVD2 v. and AnyDVD v., I get to the last step and when I press ‘GO’ a box pops up saying: CREATION OF DVD FILE WAS NOT SUCCESSFUL, UNEXPECTED ERROR. When I click on details, the following is offered: CloneMap 2 TCE.

Please advise!!! Thanks so much.

Here is my AnyDVD2 Log:

Suggest visiting SlySoft ( and download the latest current up to date version of AnyDVD v5.9.6.1. Your copy of AnyDVD v5.9.4.1 is 8 versions old and is outdated.

Best Regards,

Had no problem backing up this title with CloneDVD2 and AnyDVD

From the AnyDVD log that was posted, looks like the drive region of your hardware needs to be set to region 1, and not 0. That might be the cause of the problem, not sure though. The copy of the same movie that I have, has a bunch of useless protection on it, such as arccos, bad sector protections, bogus title sets, wrong dvd structure, etc.

I had no problem with When Stranger calls R1 WS Movie only
