I have a fully registered copy of DVDFab Platinum, and up until I attempted to update from version 126.96.36.199 I have had no problems whatsoever with this program. I am running it under Windows XP SP2.
There does not appear to be any pattern to the blue screen stop errors I am getting (IRQ_not_less_or equal) intermittently when backing the contents of my own DVDs to a folder on the hard disk to be later burnt using Nero 7 Ultra Enhanced Edition.
I am simply using the program to make a copy of the original DVD as a backup for my own use. Some DVDs do not give such an error (one that has caused problems recently is “There’s Something about Mary”). Since updating from version 188.8.131.52 it has become a game of hit or miss (mostly miss). When I downgrade once again to 184.108.40.206 the problem totally disappears until the next time (including the DVDs that previously caused the stop error). Even uninstalling the previous version, including the folder contents before updating has no impact.
To make matters much worse the error can appear when DVDFab Platinum is not itself running. Please note that I have already tried in pure desperation uninstalling pcouffin.sys via the device manager (as I do not require it to burn my DVDs using DVDFab itself) but unfortunately it does not make any difference to this very frustrating problem.
I have not updated either Nero or any other program which I believe could under certain circumstances conflict with DVDFab since this began happening, and I am now wondering whether I will ever be able to update your otherwise excellent program again, plus putting a stop to these errors once and for all.
Has anyone else encountered this same problem, or do any of you have some constructive suggestions as to what else I could try other than leaving version 220.127.116.11 in place indefinitely or trying an entirely different program in order to back up my own store bought DVDs to my computer HD?
I would only want to do the latter as a very last resort.
