    Hi there everyone. Brian in NY here. I have been using AnyDVD in combo with 1-Click to copy some movies, and it has worked great. But I just got a new Laptop, and after installing each of those two products the DVD drive does not seem to be recognized as a DVD drive anymore.

    I partially played a movie last evening just to see the beauty of my new widescreen laptop. I played it with Microsoft Media Center. Today, after installing the software, Media Center states that there is no DVD in the drive when in fact there is. I have tried several different DVDs including the very one which played last evening.

    1-click is saying the very same thing. It is saying that the disk in the drive is not a movie DVD. Again, only AnyDVD seems to recognize the DVD as a DVD.

    Further, Windows Explorer is now seeing the drive as a CD drive (not DVD). Only AnyDVD seems to be able to see the disk and report the status of its content (the movie).

    Has this crazy circumstance happened to anyone else?

    Keep in mind if you do that, the programs that installed those filters will no longer function properly and will likely need to be reinstalled.
