    I currently have AnyDVD 6.1.7.4, a HP 740B DVD Writer. When I insert a disk the red fox would usually say AnyDVD scanning disk etc. Now it flashes that box about 3 times. When I use Shrink it says no disk in drive, DVD Copy says drive not ready but AnyDVD list both my dirve and will shoe On:1 Off:0 Empty:0When I pull up the setting on ANyDVD it shows both my drive and noe disk in either of them. I have the most current firmware for my drive. i have uninstalled and reinstalled Anydvd. Need some advice. Thanks.

    1. Specify the a)full title, b)region code, c) country, and d) release date of the disc that you're experiencing issues with.

    2. a) Keep your license key file backed up safely
    b) Uninstall Anydvd (start-->all programs-->Slysoft--->Anydvd-->Uninstall)
    c) Reboot
    d) Check to see if your system ("my computer") now reports a disc in drive. Do you see a video_ts folder (if you're using a dvd)? Do you see folders or files?

    If the answer is "no" to "d)", then Anydvd isn't your problem. As Anydvd is not on your system, Anydvd can't interfere or block the reading process. Possibly your reader or burner is slowing dying, the original disc is bad, or a number of other possibilities exist as well (including messed up ide/sata busdrivers, bad cable on the back of the drive, etc.)

    If the answer is "yes", click If the answer is "yes" (and follow the steps).

    Knocked Up Region 1 USA, couldn;t find release date but I picked it up yesterday. After uninstalling AnyDVD there were no Video_TS files a.though with other discs the files are there.

    In some cases protections on discs are so bad that drives simply can't play nor see the discs. In such cases, there's nothing anyone can do--other than to return the disc to point of purchase and demand a refund because companies release discs that don't conform to the dvd-video standard (in fact, for some dvds, Sony allowed customers to exchange discs for ones that worked properly). In such cases, drives are simply incapable of handling the disc.

    Anyway, this isn't an Anydvd issue. It's not on your system, and your drive can't see the disc.
