I have just built a new box with Vista Ultimate SP1. I have installed the latest version of DVDFab decrypter (5030). Whenever I insert ANY of my movies DVDFab gets stuck at “Scanning media, please wait”. I have searched high and low for a solution and yes, I have tried disabling PathPlayer. I have also invested in a new DVD burner (Pioneer DVR-215) thinking that might be the cause - all to no avail.
The account I am using is an administrator account. I have also tried using compatibility mode with XP, and for good measure I also ran it in compatibility mode with the administrator check box ticked.
I got so sick of it last night that I walked away from the PC. When I returned it had eventually found the movie in the DVD drive! I then decided to change the default output path and it hung again! It eventually came up with an error that I can’t recall and the program shut itself down.
I have also tried the new beta release 5040. All the same problems still persist. I am tempted to set up my PC as a dual boot one with XP, and then use XP to do my ripping. I never had any issues with XP and I am beginning to miss it!
One more thing, this has happened with about 6 movies. Which is all the ones I have tried ripping.
Is this a Vista problem or something else? Any help would be appreciated.[/QUOTE]
Have you checked to see if setting PathPlayer to “Always enabled” not “when necessary”,also if there are scratches even small ones can cause this issue.
you can also try making a change in common setting … READ and select “Ignore all reading errors automatically”, you may also try changing the I/O mode from auto to SPTI (same location in common settings >> READ )
