I have tried troubleshooting this but haven't made any headway. I can launch Fab but it's after I have the open DVD Source that it just sits continues to run, you see the progress bar continuously moving from left to right. Eventually, it will finish but in HOURS not seconds. Then, it's no problem, the ripper starts and off it goes. No problem.
I've replicated this multiple times, also I have the Platinum version. This used to work great for me when it was an older version but now it's killin me! I've waited up to 3-4 hours for it to FINALLY open up the DVD. Meanwhile, things are pretty much locked up on the PC, can't open anything because it just seems to be in this endless cycle. I've tried to kill the processes in Task Monster but that's pointless. It stays in memory. Yes, I've run A/V and installed a new firewall just to make sure it wasn't a Virus. In the end, a reboot is necessary and it's a hard reboot too. Tried the clean uninstall as well, going into the Reg and blowing it out there/
I'm running WinXP SP3 on a Celeron 2.5 Ghz w/ 3 Gigs RAM, the burner is a SATA Pioneer DVR-212D (just updated the firmware yesterday to 1.28) and I've got it connected via a Silicon Images SATA Raid Card.
You know, the old version works just great, I have that running on an old XP box for testing and it cuts through the DVD like a hot knife through butter. But 18.104.22.168 is just brutal. My buddy has a likewise setup and he's experiencing the same problems, buggy. Sorry, but this is really making me unhappy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
