    After copying my DVD, CloneDVD (v 2.9.1.7) will not close. This just started 2 days ago. I actually have to hard boot my Windows XP computer in order to get the program to close. I uninstalled then reinstalled CloneDVD but no luck. So could it be a Windows XP problem? A missing or corrupt file?

    No, it does not freeze. The copy completes ok. Ejects ok. The program just won't immediately shut down when I'm finished when I click on "CLOSE".
    Actually I should qualify that and say that it takes about 5 minutes to close.
    So is the issue with WinXP or a corrupt CloneDVD file?

    Try downloading and reinstalling Clonedvd.

    I can't reproduce this problem on three different computers with XP. I'm not sure why the exiting process would take that long.

    does it close any quicker using task manager?

    also,when you click on the white cross on red background it takes 5 minutes?
    and when you right click on clonedvd2 in the taskbar>then choose close,it takes 5 minutes also?

    sounds like something is holding onto the program thus delaying shutdown.

    Well I used Task Manager to close the program and I got a "Not Responding" error message. I left it alone and did some other tasks and the program closed down in about a minute or 2. I can live with that. We may never figure this one out but at least the program works and I get good copies every time.

    Apps that mess with CloneDVD

    I found the program that caused CloneDVD to hang when trying to close CloneDVD. It's called "WINAVI Video Converter" from ZMEDIA. By a process of elimination after I uninstalled this app, CloneDVD closed normally,i.e. no delay.
    Another 2 apps may also have a conflict with CloneDVD: Softpepper's AVI Converter and Solveig's AVI Trimmer.

    i also have WinAVI Video Converter installed but clonedvd2 shuts normally.

    did you have both programs running at the same time?
