I have recently loaded AnyDVD and was ripping my DVD’s and was successful for about 24 hours. I then inserted a Disney DVD (if that matters) and the DVD drive was no longer recognized by my Windows 7 operating system. The DVD would spin, but shortly stop after about 10 seconds.
When looking at the device manager, the computer had a Exclamation mark. I also noticed the DVD driver had the AnyDVD system files installed along with Microsoft’s.
Based on thread from this site I went to Microsoft support site http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060. I ran its troubleshooter, downloaded the fix, and my DVD drive was now operational but the fix removed the AnyDVD files from the DVD driver. Now my DVD drive works but AnyDVD does not since the files are missing. My DVD player is not on autoplay, and now when a DVD is inserted a pop-up says my DVD driver is not recognized and to reinstall AnyDVD
What settings are needed to keep AnyDVD and Windows 7 DVD device drivers compatible?
