I’m the author of the patin-couffin access layer, and I’m pretty upset now with rumours Once again, I’m very surprised to discover that my driver are suspected to cause problems … in the forums or in the news - rather than in our support email. I’m always very surprised to read direct accusations, without being notified of any technical informations about it, or even without being notified by our users and/or our beta testers of problems concerning anydvd and the presence of patin-couffin on the same computer. I’m also surprised that our driver could interfere with anydvd filter driver. Patin-couffin accesses at a lower level, and up to now, that caused the softwares using patin-couffin to just NOT see AnyDVD (that’s for 2K/XP/2K3). For Win9x, it’s yet another problem, but I don’t think AnyDVD support 9x, did he ? Our duty has never been to interfere or disturb other softwares. I know other software that solve their problem by removing concurrent, or telling they are causing troubles. Our duty is not to accuse, but to do our possible to make everything working fine on one’s computer. In my humble professsionnal opinion, I think it’s better to provide technical informations to the concerned people rather than spreading rumours for whatever purpose. Well, if there is a REAL bug in patin-couffin, Come on slysoft, don’t do a “workaround”, but tell me how it bsod so I can correct and admit my mistake … - and Olly, if it’s still you the author, you know my email ! I know for sure there is an alternative of anydvd (or similar) no yet public but working now. It uses patin-couffin to access drives, it’s faster, support any software, and - most important - will be free !

I’m sorry I have ran several time test’s using both of these products and not once did I get a BSOD, I believe slysoft needs to look elsewhere, maybe it’s alcohol and their virtual drive, maybe it’s nero and maybe even EZCD creator. I believe slysoft test are fabricated if not downright wrong, I have even used it with copytodvd without any problems. Why are people always looking elsewhere to place the blame why can’t it be their product for once? VSO has taken the blame when it’s their fault they always have and they have done whats needed to fix the problem.

Yep. Same here, used Blindread/write suite and copytoDVD in conjunction with AnyDVD and had no problems. I have now taken AnyDVD of my system, because I prefer to rip with Decrypter before using any transcoding software, just to make sure the DVD vobs get a “clean” read to the HD before using DVD2ONE.

So what is this new FREE alternative Blindwriter? Because we all know Any DVD is a rip-off money wise for what it is. :wink: And don’t forget…it has nothing to do with CloneDVD - honest! lol :B Any free holidays going in the bahamas btw Olli?

I’m the author of Patin-couffin, again… After more investigation - and - finally - a technical mail exchange with AnyDvd author, we have found the issue that could occur only with very recent AnyDVD driver. That’s why older releases worked without a problem. To avoid other software to suffer the same problem with patin-couffin, we will provide an update very soon that correct the issue.


#7

so it sounds like the author of anydvd didn’t do enough testing before this release? And it was their driver causing the problem and therefore makes this story bogus?
