Welcome to the forums johnb5771.

It looks like you have the latest beta version of AnyDVD, and you’ve reported your results to Slysoft in their forum presumably, so you’ve done about as much as you can for now. Wait for an update to deal with the issue in this dvd, or try a different decrypter that is reasonably up to date, like DVDFab.

If you haven’t used DVDFab, you’ll get a trial period. And even after the trial ends the free section, called DVDFab HD Decrypter will continue to function as a decryption/ripping program. It just isn’t updated as quickly.

Looking up this particular movie, it seems like it was released on dvd quite some time back, sometime in 2010. So, the protection on it should have been solved already. If neither Fab nor AnyDVD can rip this movie, my bet would be that you have a defective disc.

Another free decryption/ripping program you might want to try on it is BDLot DVD ISO Master. It will rip as an ISO file on the hard drive.

If you need to access the contents of an ISO made from a dvd movie, you can do so directly with VLC to play it, or DVDShrink to compress. You can also mount it in a free virtual drive like Slysoft’s VirtualClone Drive.
