Hi to all,
A kind thank you to Pelvis Popcan - Dr.Who - BeLooken - Whisperer1 for all your assistance in offering suggestions on how to fix my problems with Any DVD.
Okay, I tried just about all that you suggested and the exact same problems persist with no change whatsoever. Here’s what I did re your suggestions:
- I updated my Pioneer DVR -111D firmware to 1.29
- I unistalled AnyDVD 188.8.131.52 and downloaded and installed
AnyDVD 184.108.40.206 as suggested.
- I uninstalled Clone DVD 220.127.116.11 and downloaded and installed 18.104.22.168
- I bought new Verbatim blank media DVD-R 8X (made in Taiwan by the
way and not Japan). I also bought a new pack of 10 BenQ blank disks
and a pack of 10 Imation disks to try (experiment with).
- I even changed the region code from region 1 to region 4 in the hope
that this would correct the problem.
- Upgraded to Service Pack #4
I then tried to copy one of my movies that copied successfully when I first downloaded the trial version of AnyDVD 22.214.171.124 on November 23. (back then I still had the problem of the window appearing telling me there was a writing error possibly caused by bad media and to insert another blank disk).
Today, after the movie has been copied to my hard drive, I insert a new blank VERBATIM disk in the tray and the same warning window appears saying:
"Write Error Caused by possible bad media. Please insert another blank disk. This window occurs whether I insert the Verbatim disks or the BenQ disks or the Imation disks or any other brand of disk.
The problems I am experiencing are two-fold:
The window ALWAYS appearing telling me that there is a write error possibly caused by bad media and to insert another blank disc.
The disk not being able to play in my computer and stand-alone DVD player that plays other burned disks. I seriously believe that AnyDVD is NOT decrypting as it should. This was one of the main reasons why I contacted SlySoft in the first place but got no response.
When Clone DVD and Any DVD has copied the movie to a blank disk, I then try to play it in my DVD players. I insert the disk and it never gets past the “Loading” stage and all I can hear is a continual ‘grinding’ noise while the DVD player is trying to load the disk. I feel that although the disk is burned, it has not been decrypted. I am NOT using trial versions of these two programs. I have bought these two programs and have installed the user keys.
Any further suggestions on how I may fix these problems are most welcomed. I’m very close to just ditching my current hard drive and putting in a new one and saying goodbye to AnyDVD and Clone DVD and buying another program that works without all the problems. The irony is that I have a friend who uses these two programs and also uses the same blank media as I do but she has never had any problems and has NEVER had one single coaster in all the 200+ movies she has copied from her collection.
