Hello , I'm new to the forum and have been using DVDFAB platnium version 4 for about 8 months now, It has worked perfectly (until recently). I'm very happy with the prodect. The operating system I'm using Fab DVD on is Windows XP Home Edition with service pack 2.
Here is the problem I'am having. I reformatted my HD and reinstalled Windows XP. Now FABDVD sees the same drive letter on the source drive and the target drive as both being D:/. I have checked DMA modes and they are both set to DMA. My source drive is a DVD sata, my target drive is a TSSTcorp CDRWDVD IDE drive. I checked in "My Computer" and the drives are liisted as D: and E: under WinXP. But FAB DVD program sees them as both being D: now. This problem only occurred after I reinstalled Win XP. I have tried reformatting and reinstalling Win XP and still have the problem with FabDVD seeing the target and source drive having the same drive letters. And before I had this problem I could open FABDVD program insert the DVD and FAB would see it in the drive and analyze the dvd. Now I have to put the DVD in the drive THEN open FABDVD program so it can analyze the DVD. If I do put the DVD in the drive while FABDVD program is open. The DVD will not even be seen as being in the drive. I went to my computer to see if the DVD was being seen in the drive by the OS and it wasn't seen.
I have also uninstalled the drives and reinstalled, didn't help. I also went into device manager and uninstalled the IDE drivers and reinstalled, did not help.
I have tried to change the drive letters in XP but don't know how to in the OS. And I really do not know if this would even help.
Has anyone had this problem ? And if so how do you correct it?
Thanks, and Happy New Year!!!
