Yes it worked fine for me once I updated to the new version 188.8.131.52.
At least with my computer’s setup rebooting was not necessary to allow me to now use both the Main Movie and Customise options when copying National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets to the hard drive.
But as I have learnt through painful experience there are so many different possible software and hardware combinations out there on everyone’s computers, that no two are equal and this could be why one person reports that rebooting is either necessary or recommended, while the other gets away without having to do this (most times).
The fact that there are so many unique combinations must be a nightmare for software authors such as Fengtao, and cause bad feelings amongst forum members when one person says that it works on their system so the other person either does not know how to use their own computer, or even worse is making the whole thing up (why you would want to do such a thing, I really don’t know).
Intermittent problems are generally the most difficult to have to deal with, both as a customer and as the software developer. If you cannot duplicate the problem on demand there is often a belief by others that you were seeing things. After a few times even you may begin to question your own sanity in the light of other people’s genuine claims that the software worked for them, so why didn’t it work for you.
Thanks again to everyone for responding to my query. I declare at least this problem to be as of now satisfactorily resolved on my system, as it stands on July 29th, 2008.
