I have not been active for a while but now have time to get back to my video projects and just started having a problem with 126.96.36.199.
I updated to 188.8.131.52 in July and used it a couple of times with no problem other than it takes forever to load compared to 4.x and 5x. Any way I upgraded to 184.108.40.206 hoping it would speed things up and while trying to rip a full movie to hard drive I got a strange reading sector error and I was unable to eject my disc from my drive. I finally had to power down to get the drive to open again.
I figured it was a bad disc or SW issue so I did a clean uninstall and tried a different disc but got the same issue. I thought maybe my dw1655 BenQ drive went bad and was ready to replace it but I have been using it all day reading, writing and performing quality tests with other tools besides DVDFab with no problem.
I am using XP SP3, DVDFab 220.127.116.11 and at ATA BenQ dw1655 which has been a great drive for me. I am not ruling out a hardware problem but was wondering if others have run across a problem with the drive would actually lock and not respond to button hold down after using DVDFab? BTW with all the drives I have every owned I have never actually had a DVD writer go bad. CD writers in the old days yes, but never a DVD drive.
Hopefully I am not rambling here but any suggestions would be appreciated.
