AnyDVD do not recognize my DVD-driver anymore (windows 98)

    since I installed the new AnyDVD version a couple of days ago the programm will not recognize my DVD-driver any more. I did de-install und new install it a couple of times nothing changed. I installed older version from my backup-CD but nothing changed.

    I use windows 98 so the hints given here for Vista and other versions did not work for me. I coulnd't find the mentioned directories Lower und UpperFiles.

    I don't know very much about such computer things. I just only use the thing and so far AnyDDVD worked fine. Other programms like PowerDVD and Nero still also work without any problem. It's only AnyDVD what won't work anymore and therefore of course CloneDVD also will not ripp anything.

    I'm not an native english speaker but if someone can help my with a detailed plan I surely will understand what to do to fix the problem.

    I'm sorry that I can't help you.... but I feel better knowing somewhere in the world someone other than me still has a '98 machine still running. I have one at my in-laws home in Texas, left over from the days of Air Warrior 2.
    It's been there for years and does what they want it to do, so I've let it stay as it is. :)

    Anyway........ listen to James......... he is The Man with this AnyDVD stuff.

    I get the message: kein DVD-Laufwerk gefunden. In english: Didn't find a DVD-drive.

    Of course I have a DVD-drive and it's working properly with all other programms (nero, PowerDVD, even CloneDVD as long as its not a coded DVD). I did uninstall and reinstall the slysoft programms several times before I asked for help here. As I already had read this solutions in other threads. I even got back the the oldest versions I had because I thought maybe the new one isn't suitable for windows 98 anymore. But the error remains. I even did a windows98 setup but it also did not help.

    I had no problem with Any-DVD before the newest download.

    I ddi read that oen has to delete the uper and lowerfiles but I don't find the mentioned registry-files. Obviously there are in other directorys or have other names in windows 98.

    If you have packet writing software (Incd from Nero or directcd) ensure you uninstall it.

    I don't have a windows 98 system to test Anydvd on, sorry.
