I have been burning DVDs with DVD-Decryptor for 6-months no problems. I was backing up my games using CloneCD for about a month no problems. I copy of my games wouldn't back up so I tried Alcohol 120.
I installed the trial version. It seemed to work fine. I backed up 4 games. I then tried to use DVD-Decryptor for a DVD and it wouldn't recognize the DVD. I then realized that Windows Explorer won't recognize the DVD. Complains about a incorrectly formatted disc. CDs seem to have no problem. Only DVDs. I went ahead and uninstalled A120 but still had the problem. Removed the DVD-Writer from device manager and rebooted and still had the problem.
Here's where it gets even stranger. I then used a USB2.0 DVD-Writer and DVD-Decryptor worked fine. I install A120 and about 10 minutes later the external DVD-Writer has the same problem. CDs work but DVDs don't. I take the external to another computer and it still doesn't work!
- Did Alcohol 120 cause this?
- Did the drive actually get physically messed up? Firmware altered?
- Doesn't seem to be software since moving the external to another computer didn't work either?
Any help on this one? Thanks all.
