Ok, I wanted to try the new version of PDVD and so far I have been restistant staying on my PDVD3104 version and used file playback. A happy camper. As everybody was talking about the better video and audio qualty of PDvd8, I tried it and used imgburn to create some images and daemon tools to mount them. ONly specialty: I have everything on a central Windows Home server. I had no perfroamnce issues when playing back directly files from the server. But now, I can mount the image from the server, but get heavy stutter and sometimes a complete break-down. Playing back the image from a local drive works without issues. So, has anyone solved that issue ? We simply need this Slysoft player... BY the way: I tried as well Nero Drive and Slysoft VirtualCloneDrive...same result. And again: PLaying back directly the files from the network server works (it is a gigabit network).
