    I just installed, and when I insert a blu-ray disc and click "Rip Video Disc to Harddisk..." the following pops up:

    "Drive E: is not ready!"

    Does Explorer recognize the disc, after AnyDVD has finished scanning?
    If not - do you insert the disc, while AnyDVD is running? Or do you start AnyDVD with the disc in the drive?

    Forget the question. I can reproduce the problem, seems to be a "Windows XP thing". I'll look into it.

    Thanks, James, and FYI as you might imagine I'm seeing the same problem on W2K Pro.

    You do like ancient operating systems, don't you? :)
    AnyDVD should fix the problem (I haven't tested W2K...)

    Yes, I like my computers lean and fast (Windows 2000 Professional on the X99 platform) and under my control. The newer systems leave me feeling like it's microsoft's computer rather my own that I'm using.

    My test rips went fine on XP and W2k Pro, so all is well here. You've done it again, James. Thank you.

    W2K, one of the, if not the best OS ever made by Microsoft

    You're absolutely right about that. And especially Windows 10 is the first Windows version that makes me think about slowly moving towards Linux.
    But it will become more and more difficult to support these older OSs. We're already using several workarounds to make the code work with XP and below - current compilers don't support these Windows versions anymore, and we're already using a several years old compiler.
