I ussually don’t go off in regards to programs. And I was very happy with DVDFab.
However, I have had several issues with bad burns in the past. That wasn’t as big a deal as what I have been experiencing lately.
I know that this is not a media issue because this happens regardless of media used. And has not/does not happen when using shrink or other programs.
I run Vista w/ a Sony DRX-800ul on a firewire connection. My firmware/drivers are up to date.
Lately DVDfab has either been crashing, and then crashing windows. Or it will keep running but not continue with the burn or importing the file. Like it is hanging. The timers are going, but noting is happening. I have a few disks that will cause this to happen.
Then when I try to cancel the burn it will not respond. When I finally manage to stop it, the program will close. It used to crash windows as well.
When I try to reopen DVDFab, it will not reopen. But when I check Task Manager there will be several incidents of the program running that I can not close.
When I try to restart my computer it will not shutdown via soft keys and will require a hard shutdown using the power button.
The idea is to back up my files, not waste money on worthless formated blank media. Futhermore this can’t be good with all of these hard shutdowns.
I have tried a clean uninstall and reinstall on my computer. I have defragged, and cleaned my reg. I have tried setting it up to run in compatibility mode with Xp. I was hoping that the latest version would work better but that has let me down now as well. It does not seem to crash windows anymore. But the rest of it is making this program unbearable to use.
I very rarely post in such a negative manner, and I usu try to fix things on my own. But this is driving me nuts. I am getting to the point where I will start paying another $10 so that I can dl ipod versions of my movies instead of using this program to convert them and giving up backing up my files…this is way to frustrating and time consuming.
I am also wondering it this persists what the refund policy is for this program.
