Thanks in advance for this very nice release Olli :iagree:

The famous “success” sound is HERE!!



@ Ollie

fixed issues with Plextor drives

Does this have anything to do with my wierd problem I was having?


What problems were you having with the Plextor? I own both the 708A and 712A.



@ Mad Burner

If you really wanna know, just have a look at the link


No, but it was a problem reported here in the forum with the 712A not padding correctly the end of track with (AFAIR) -R media.
I don’t find the original thread, but it is here somewhere…


pause/resume while transcoding
This one’s cool ! :smiley:


Hi Olli

Thanks for the new version :slight_smile:

The thread for the PX-712A problem is here. I will test this new version with PX-712A and let you know how it goes.



Hi Olli

I can confirm that the PX-712A problem is now fixed :smiley:

Also some nice new features and sounds. 6X and 12X writing speeds and the drawer doesn’t open when finished :slight_smile:

These are all things that I have seen people asking for on this forum and it’s nice to see a software company that listens to it’s customers and gives them what they want.

Respect to you and the rest of the Elby team :bow: :bow: :bow:



What’s up with the new release? I thought we had a year of updates and now we have to dig out our old license and send it to elby in order exchange it for a new license? I guess AnyDVD getting at least a piece of CloneDVD has prompted them to update their license system. Well, I guess thats fine for the new business partners but to the old buyers of the software it is to say the least, a pain.


Re: License a Pain:

From what I’ve read, upgrading to the new version is a downgrade instead of an upgrade


Yeah, and you get a year of free updates starting from the date you request the license.
