I typed a reply yesterday but it logged me out as i hit Submit and I was too buzy to redo,
1st, You dont need unistall Alcohol (you have it for a reason), it has a setting thats messing with you and they clearly tell you in a info bubble once you tick the box or untick/retick in this case.
here from my post days ago.
" The last 2 build of Alcohol do have a setting that can mess with some other burning apps , there is a setting you can uncheck to stop this in General/Emulation, it tells you as you uncheck/check box so you will find it, its there for a reason so I leave it unchecked until I need use Alcohol then uncheck when Im finished.
If you have ever installed a game with crappy Starforce protection that can be cause, it made me waste 12 dvd's in a row a while back before I realised the issue. "
Starforce Drivers can also fook it up.
" Are you sure, cause unistalling game does not remove the Starforce driver, its under hardware in device maanger, you can get a tool that they made to clean it called Starforce Cleaner.
