Can AnyDVD damage the DVD drive?

    Does AnyDVD modify the drive firmware in anyway? Does it permanently make the DVD drive region free? I don't want to cause damage to my drive that can not be reversed, even after reformatting and reinstalling the OS.

    Hi :)
    Welcome onboard David_DVD. :clap:
    AnyDVD does not make any hardware changes (this includes f/w).
    AnyDVD is software so changes are temporal. Uninstall or switch AnyDVD off & everything reverts to its default staus.:D

    I've been using AnyDVD for over Two Years now .
    Literally - Thousands of Back-Ups
    - All using the same HP 640b(LG) Drive to Read

    I would have thought the Drive would have died by now
    - on it's own - just from 'wear and tear'/'natural causes'
    Nope ; It's still kicking ........

    Does AnyDVD cause any damage to the Drive ?
    Tested and True : Absolutely Not

    as stated .....
    Any Change , Effected by AnyDVD
    - Returns to the Default - when you Exit AnyDVD
