I was using the 3.9.x.x version of AnyDVD. All was fine. I then installed SP2 for XP. Now, when I insert a movie (DVD), the system freezes. I have upgraded to 22.214.171.124 and the same result.
I have two memorex DVD burners and the same happens on both drives. One older and one newer.
When I deactivate AnyDVD, loading movies will not freeze the system which almost tells me that there is a compatability issue between AnyDVD and SP2. I have heard that Microsoft added some anti-piracy stuff in SP2 but not sure if this could be the issue.
I welcome any feedback on this.
