    Complete newbie. Just installed anydvd and clone DVD yesterday. Thought I would do a test today. Put in my own copy of spiderman 3. drive light would flash sporadically and hard drive light would flash at the same time, but the disc would not even play or even be recognized by my PC. Did I have this problem before or was this caused by the new software? I have an emachines t6520 with a 128 mb radeon video card and 1gb ram. Do I have a bad setting or wrong hardware?

    5. Anydvd can't see or detect my original dvd-video movie disc (or my drives can read cds and not dvds or vice versa). What should I do?

    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 http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=1559 and follow the steps (note that step 4 requires you to post information)

    Well, I tried the uninstall, but the disc is still not recognized. Any suggestions?

    Basically, no, I don't have any further suggestions. This isn't an anydvd issue.

    Others may have suggestions for you, but I would probably start by testing the disc in another dvd drive.
