I have used the Smart Read-ahead Cache feature of DVDIdlePro for many years now in XP with great success in order to keep the DVD-drive quiet when watching films.
I have now upgraded to a Vista Media Center PC and I would like to use the Smart Read-ahead Cache feature of DVDIdlePro with Windows Vista in order to keep the DVD-drive quiet.
I installed DVDIdlePro in Vista and an error was reported. (I can't remember which error and I have since re-installed Vista).
I searched this forum for help and according to some of the threads in this forum, DVDIdlePro will not work with Windows Vista.
Also, according to http://www.dvdidle.com/dvd-idle.htm, Vista is not a supported OS.
What I would like to know is:
1.Is there a way to get DVDIdlePro working with Vista?
2.If not, when will an updated version be available to run with Vista?
3.If no updates are planned, does DVDFab have the Smart Read-ahead Cache feature?
4.If not, does anyone know of a another program that will allow me to use Smart Read-ahead Cache.
