I just did the update on anydvd yesterday. The burner burns fine. It’s the ripping that it wont do. But it has worked after I did some fixes. I did the remove filter thing from the reg once and that worked for a while. I slowed down the drive speed in any dvd and that worked for awhile. It just never lasts. Nero Recode wont even read the disk. Dvd Shrink will read it but then when the encode starts, up pops the error. And for the record as it seems to be a touchy subject, I have no problems with Vista. I like Vista. Im not sure Vista is the problem. Like I said the burner burns fine and plays movies fine, it’s the ripping that is the problem. I guess my main question is could it be the drive? Btw…the any dvd version number is 22.214.171.124. Thanks.
