what brand of burner? what are his cimputer spec’s? it is not uncommon to find a drive stuck in PIO mode when installing a new drive he should check to see if the drive is operationg in DMA2 as it should be. also thelatest version of AnyDVD is 5.5.5.1 he should update.

The latest update to AnyDVD is version 5.6.1.1 and works as always with CloneDVD 2.8.5.1, here are the changes…

Changes in AnyDVD 5.6.1.1, 2005 11 27:

  • New: Added detection and removal of a new type of protection “MacroVision RipGuard” as found on “Madagascar WideScreen” R1 (US) or “Vet Hard” R2 (Netherlands) to the option to remove “Protection based on unreadable Sectors”
    Note: RipGuard could be copied together with elby CloneDVD2 since AnyDVD version 5.4.1.1, but this new version supports drag and drop of all files from DVD to harddisk as well!
  • New: Added support for a new version of the Sony Arccos protection as found on “Seinfeld Season 6 Disc 3” R2 (German) to the option to remove “Protection based on unreadable Sectors”
  • New: Information Window now shows MacroVision RipGuard, if it was detected.
  • New: Information Window now displays, if “Error zones between files” have been removed, like on “Resident Evil - Apocalypse” R1 (US)
