Yeah...had a look at AnyDVD. The version on my computer is version 126.96.36.199. Not sure if it is the same thing to be honest, got it from http://www.click-now.net/download/AnyDVD.htm.
The version on the SlySoft.com website definately says 188.8.131.52.
I closed all the background programs and tried running the disk with dvddecryptor, getting error msg, still getting the read errors. Have checked the disk, definately no damage etc. Any other thoughts? Should I ignore the I/O message or abort the whole thing?
Am I correct that I am using the File mode to save to the hard drive which I can then pick up through DVD shrink and burn in there using nero?
