    What firmware version does your burner have?

    Diagnostics 101 ---- Uninstall AnyDVD. Then try to play a "Normal Store Bought DVD" and try to write to the unit using any software other then a SlySoft product. If the problem goes away - it may be AnyDVD's problem or it may not (read on) - if it doesn't go away, you have a bad drive.

    If the problem went away, reinstall AnyDVD and try to read the same DVD. If it works, then you never "established" the Drives "Region Code" and it should work from now on.

    ALL new drives are delivered without the Region being set and sometimes even the best of us forget this until we experience some real weird behavior on the new drives.
