OK, I’ve looked through some of the archives and didn’t find anything to help me with my specific problem. I use Clone DVD 18.104.22.168 and AnyDVD 22.214.171.124…which I think are the latest updates. I just did the IDE drivers and did the firmware update on my HP 740b last night. Here is my problem. While trying to burn a DVD, Clone freezes just while writing the files. Just now, it stopped at 17%! I then have a heckuva time getting CloneDVD to shut down. It usually requires me “X’ing” out of the program, then “end now” etc. It will shut down, but when I open up Task Manager, it still shows Clone DVD as a running process…but not an application. I can open other programs, but can’t get Firefox to open. Then I try to restart my puter and it is still hung up from the Clone DVD fiasco…so I have to to shut it off with the dreaded button
I run Norton…tho they’ve decided not to continue my live updates until I pay them more for a newer version of Norton grrrrrrr…but that is another forum I do Ewido…there again, you can’t update that program any longer, and Registry first aid along with the slew of other anti virus/malware programs.
I truly hope one of you guru’s can help me…I don’t know what else to try!
