4.0.6.2 isn't working for me - How do I go back one version?

vbimport

#1

I updated to the latest version (4062) last night - tried a run on a “Good Eats” dvd. DVDFab didn’t copy the main video & none of the menus work. I was doing a Full Copy.

So just wondering how to go back the the previous version. The previous version worked just fine with the “Good Eats” dvds.

Thanks

Just uninstall the version you have, and reinstall the latest version again. Make sure you are using quality media, let us know. Before you uninstall make sure you have your key backed up.:iagree:

I use “Taiyo Yuden” media.

How do I backup my key? Sorry for a dumb question but this is the first time I have ever had with DVDFab.

The regkey (or keygen) is the attachment in your email.
Simply copy it to a floppy, cd, flash drive, slave or ext hdd…or a combo of these.
Many of us also forward the original email (or attachment) from Fengtao along to another email provider such as gmail or yahoo. This way it stays on an outside server in the event you misplace your original key or suffer some sort of data corruption or loss.

[Edit]
You can also retrieve your regkey via:
http://www.dvdfab.com/retrieveregkey.htm

Use your original purchase email addy. In the even this no longer works…there are instructions for changing email addys…just follow the prompts.

I bought DVDFab so long ago I don’t even know what email account I used. Whenever I do an update I see the key number but it seems you are saying that a “file” is involved. Is the regkey anywhere in the DVDFab directory?

Thats what I get for having too many addresses.

Not sure what you mean by a “key number”, but I just looked at mine…it’s 173 bytes total according to windows explorer.
I didn’t count the # of characters, but it’s comprised of roughly “100”.

V4 is not that old. Your key should have a [B]F icon.[/B] Where did you buy your program?

I bought it from DVDFab - off the web site.

hey there, i need some help along these lines. upgraded from from my old fabplatinum (which worked well - just a bit slow) to 4.0.6.2 and have been trying to copy a movie - the miracle maker.
So far only the coming attractions copy, but the main movie stops at the menu and will go no further. I uninstalled my old and new versions and reinstalled the new, but same problem.
i’m using imation dvd-r, 8x which i know are not that great, but worked fine with the old version. give some advice please.

Check on the date that DVDFab was first downloaded, then look in your email boxes for email around that date. Most email programs allow you to sort by date. I think the number that you are referring to is the one that is by your name in screen that states “This copy registered to Name ########” I do not know what that number is, but it is way too short to be the Key. The Key may be stored in your registry, but I would suggest that you try to find the email before checking the registry.

hi again
tried to copy a different movie. worked fine. however, this one didn’t have previews, only the main movie - The Hard Easy.
could it be that there’s some kind of copy protection with The Miracle Maker why it won’t copy?
thanks
