    Wierd problem here maybe someone has an answer. I replaced my H.D. (went from IDE to SATA II) and now I get a prompt from ANY DVD that I do not have any burners and in the status section. it shows my burners but it says that it is not activated or turned off for those 2 drives.
    I've been using ANY DVD for a few years and this is the first time I have ever seen something like this. :confused:

    ps: running Xp ser. Pack 2 and both burners are Sony

    Ensure you're using Anydvd (or the lastest version).

    If Anydvd says your drive is disabled, ignore the message unless you also receive it
    when you have a movie inserted in that drive.
    Some drives' firmware may report the wrong
    information to Anydvd. Often Anydvd will still function properly.

    If Anydvd can't see your drives or they aren't listed, click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Navigate to "Drives"-->"Selection".
    Ensure your optical drives are checkmarked.

    Right click the Anydvd icon on your desktop. Click "properties". Click the "Compatibility tab". If you're using
    Windows XP, ensure the box for "compatibility mode" is not selected. -- thanks to vbro for the information

    linx05 says Teatimer enabled on Spybot can cause problems during installation: visit

    1. Exit out of all Slysoft programs and reinstall

    a) Keep your license key file backed up safely
    b) Uninstall Anydvd (start-->all programs-->Slysoft--->Anydvd-->Uninstall)
    c) Reboot
    d) Try running a registry cleaner program at this point like CCleaner
    e) Download Anydvd
    f) Exit all Slysoft programs (including Anydvd, Clonedvd2, Clonecd, Clonecdtray, Clonedvdmobile, etc.). Check Windows Task Manager if you have to.
    g) At this point disable your antivirus and firewall programs
    h) Reinstall
    i) Reboot
    j) Install your license key (if required)
    k) At this point enable your antivirus and firewall programs

    If that doesn't work go on to step 2.

    Be certain your SATA to MOBO cable and SATA power cable are securely connected. Does the drive show in Device Manager?

    yes , the drives are shown everywhere else on my comp. any dvd gives a pop up upon start up that says I do not have a burner. When I open up the program the drives are checked off , but under status menus they say ANY DvD is not activated for these drives. I go to clone dvd and the disc I am reading stops at the Copyright screen.
