I just installed a program on my Windows XP SP2 computer (that has been working like a dream for the last 6 months) and now I’m seeing a very strange problem.
After I installed CloneDVD 2, this is what happens (or doesn’t happen)
If I insert a CD or DVD in either of my DVD drives (one reader and one writer), the media will not autostart or cannot be viewed from explorer (or any other way) until the computer is restarted. That is also the case with my virtual DVD drive (by Daemon tools) and mounting an image. I cannot see the image until after I restart.
Once restarted the CD, DVD or image works great. But if I unload or unmount the media and try it again, then it fails to be read once more (until a restart)
If I uninstall CloneDVD 2, then this issue doesn’t happen and all media and images work like they should when they should. The problem really seems to be CloneDVD 2 and something about my computer. I’ve had other DVD copying running before without these issues. I assume CloneDVD 2 has made some global change on my system that affects all my DVD drives (hardware or virtual)
I tried looking around various websites, but have not seen this problem popup anywhere (even tried Elby.ch website)
The problem will make me get rid of CloneDVD 2 if I have to, but I really do like the product.
