I purchased DVD Fab Platinum about a month ago. Lately, I've run into problems in copying DVD disks (not retail movies, but rather DVDs of home movies, broadcast tv shows, etc. that have been recorded to blank DVDs.) I have a Dell XPS 400 computer that is new (with the standard dvd/cd recorder in it), and Windows XP Media. When I use DVD Fab express, I don't run any other programs. I also have a dial up internet connection, which is not turned on when using DVD Fab Express. The blank DVDs I use are either Sony or Imation Forcefield DVD+R disks.
My problem is that when I put a DVD into one drive and try copying it to a blank DVD in my other drive, partially through reading the disk, it seems to freeze and instead of counting down the time remaining, it starts to count up. For example, if I had 10 minutes remaining till writing the DVD, it starts counting up to 15, 20 and 30 minutes. If let alone, I could let it run all day and it would continue to count up. When I click on the cancel button, I get a message the window popup that says "program not responding". I then have to shut down and start over again. So far, since last night, this has happened on 4 out of 6 DVDs that I've been trying to copy.
Sometimes the program runs fine, but this seems to be happening quite a bit more to me lately. It's very frustrating. Can anyone provide some guidance and help?
