[QUOTE=cholla;2548031]The reason I asked was to eliminate the Windows OS as the problem.
Do a check yourself in the registry for upper & lower filters.
I have Vista HP & my registry only has the LowerFilter for AnyDVD .This has never caused me any problem.
In your post #5 you get this message:
This is what AnyDVD shows when there is no disc in the drive.
Have you tried to detect several discs & get the above message on all of them ? Or is it one specific disc that has the problem ?
Do you have more than one drive that can read a DVD disc ?If so does AnyDVD work with that drive ?
Last give AnyDVD enough time .On a disc it has difficulty with it might take 10 or 15 minuted to read. On a bad enough disc it might not read it at all.[/QUOTE]
I uninstalled AnyDVD, CloneDVD, and ITunes and then reinstalled them all. this took care of my problem however Windows Media Player 11 plays the sound but no picture. I rolled that back to version 10 and it does the same thing. Now i don’t know what to do with that. At least i can use the other programs now, i was kinda lost without them.
