Hi S Morton and welcome to cdfreaks,
I’ll try to answer your questions in order…
- Platinum is available as a free 30 day trial. This application is identical to and is the same download as the retail version…the difference is that the trial period and use of the program expires after 30 days.
Beta and final versions can be downloaded from this forum, posted as a sticky at/near the top by Fengtao:
DVDFab Platinum 188.8.131.52 Beta
Final versions are also available on Fengtao’s home site:
So no, there is no charge or financial obligation during the 30 day trial.
2.Sonic is problematic for many users with other burning software including Fab.
Some users don’t experience a problem.
Frankly, I’d dump it. You won’t need it and you can always reinstall it.
Your problem is very likely driver/access layer conflicts.
What OS are you using…Vista, XP?
If you could provide some details as to your system and what exactly happens when
"…My FABDVD program acts like a DVD has not been installed…"
and post a screenshot it would help us nail down specific advice for you.
