    Hi,
    since a few days I cannot use AnyDVD anymore.
    The tray icon isn't shown anymore and both of my DVD-/BluRay-Drives show status "not activated".
    Both drives are tagged in drive selection.

    Installed version 8.4.8.0, tried to revert to 8.4.7.0, but had luck - same problem.

    I owe a life time licesense, please let me know if you need details.

    Problem seems to be machine, OS or SW related. I installed version 8.4.8.0 on my old machine, and it works (but this machine is slow and has no BluRay Drive).

    TIA

    Sounds like an Anti virus/firewall issue.

    Only MS defender active (Win 10 1909). Default firewall settings, i.e. no filters on outgoing traffic.

    Seems like the AnyDVD drivers are not loaded. I didn't find anything AnyDVD related stuff. Are there any log files on AnyDVD startup?

    Disconnect your drives, and see if AnyDVD installs correctly. If so your drive may be damaged.

    AnyDVD was installed correctly - it worked. I'm right now watching a BluRay with Leawo Player on my 2nd drive (LG) after having been watching another BluRay on my 1st drive (Pioneer). So pls don't tell me anything about hw problems. After almost 30 years in PC business, I've seen dozens of optical drives dying - and all of them died digitally (they just stopped working at all).
    Both of my drives play CD, DVD and (as just tested) BluRay without any drive related problems. Just AnyDVD stopped working.
    Once again: are there any logs regarding AnyDVD startup?

    Please slow down if you are seeking for help. No one will like to respond if you stay aggressive like this.

    Sry. but I don't see anything aggressive in my reply. I've just been reporting my observations and have been insisting on a question not have been replied. Well, if that's aggresive, then your reply is an excellent example of passive aggression.

    Uninstall ANYDVD completely and re-install. You will for sure need your activation code if you do so.

    Report back.

    Ok, I try to ignore that my questions and observations are not respected.
    So what do you mean: dissconnect the drives physically?

    There is obviously something not working regarding ANYDVD on your PC. Therefore:

    -Uninstall ANYDVD completely
    -Reboot
    -Install ANYDVD. Apply registration code.
    -Reboot
    -Try again

    Hi,
    - uninstall
    - reboot
    - install
    - reboot
    AnyDVD is working again.
    Seems like the AnyDVD installation was corrupted by something...
    Thank You for the kind support and your patience
