I upgraded to 188.8.131.52 today and all of the sudden I can no longer play any 'commercial' dvd in my liteon player. I've had this burner for about 2 years now, and it wasn't until I installed 184.108.40.206 that I have ever had any problems at all.
When I goto my computer, with a dvd in the drive, it always says insert disk. I've tried over a dozen now. Anydvd says both drives are empty (1 dvd, 1 cd).
I tried music cd's and they work.
I tried data cd's and they work.
I tried backup dvd's and they even work, ones I made yesterday even.
It is ONLY commercial dvd's that are no longer recognized.
I've cleaned my registry
I've upgraded firmware
I've uninstalled anydvd and reinstalled, even tried to read a commercial dvd prior to reinstall but same problem now.
I called ms tech support and they've never heard of such a thing before. So far out there that they even refunded my $65 for the tech support call.
This is NOT a 'hacked' copy of anydvd, it's the trial vs. from today as my old one ran out.
I could really use some ideas if I have missed something.
