After install, DVD is no longer recognized

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?
