Hi all. This is my first post.
I have done a search on this forum and noted similar problems but had no luck finding a solution.
I have installed FabDVD HD Decrypter 184.108.40.206. basic version. I have also installed an xbox 360 HD-DVD drive on my PC. The drive installed successfully, going and finding the driver from Microsoft update.
FabDVD ‘sees’ ordinary DVDs when inserted in the drive and will happily rip them, but does not ‘see’ HD-DVD discs. You cant see them in the Source pull down menu. MS Windows Explorer can’t see the disc either as it doesn’t recognise the directory format.
I had previously installed the AnyDVD trial version, which did see the HD Discs but would stall after 4 or 5 minutes during ripping when some other activity may have been going on in my PC - seemed a bit temperamental. I have since uninstalled AnyDVD.
Is it the case that the basic version of FabDVD doesn’t have the HD function? Or it does and I have some other problem? Can anyone suggest a solution or point me in right the direction?
I am running an older PC with an Athlon 3500+ processor, 2.21 GHz 3.00GB RAM, a ATI Radeon 8500 display card and an EMU 1212 audio interface. I have XP SP2 with all latest updates. It is not my intention to play HD’s on this system, just to backup my discs in a server which is yet to be purchased for use with a HTPC system yet to be built. Just in the process of proving the ‘ripping’ process at the moment before committing more funds to this project - but not having much luck.
Appreciate any advice.
