    When I have AnyDVD enabled and I insert a DVD into the drive my entire system locks up. I have uninstalled AnyDVD and reinstalled. I upgrade every time I am notified and am currently on 6.1.4.3. This problem started about two upgrades ago. When I disable anyDVD, my drive reads the discs fine.

    Drive: TSSTCORP CD/DVDW TS-L532M HR08 07/23/05
    Driver: 5.1.2535.0
    Region: 1
    AnyDVD version: 6.1.4.3
    System: Windows XP Pro
    Lower Filters: AnyDVD
    PxHelp20
    Upper Filters: GEARAspiWDM

    I would really appreciate any help you can offer!

    Is another program trying to access the disc at the same time? I found that if I was erasing a disc or writing to it in ImgBurn, my whole computer would freeze if I did something to AnyDVD which would cause it to access the DVD.

    No other programs are open. I've tried everything from starting the rebooting with AnyDVD autostart disabled, letting everything load, then enabling to starting the computer with AnyDVD enabled. No matter what I do, when I insert a disc with AnyDVD enabled the computer freezes up. I've been using AnyDVD coupled with CloneDVD extensively for a year or more now and this is the first problem I've ever had with it.
    Do you at least know where I can go to get an older version of AnyDVD so that I can get things working again?

    I've done step three with no luck. I'm waiting on support to send me the patch though I can't understand how I'm having this problem now after using the program so much for such a long period of time. Is there something new in the program that is conflicting with some computers?

    Had to revert to 6.1.3.3

    I've been using AnyDVD for a year or more now and upgrade religiously... every time I'm notified. Unfortunately I haven't been able to even read a DVD when AnyDVD is enabled since the last two revisions. I've done everything in these forums, including requesting an I/O patch. I haven't received the patch, but I wanted to go ahead and get back to functioning, so I tried to get stuff working by uninstalling and installing 6.1.3.3. Guess what, IT WORKS NOW!

    Based on the above, does anyone have any idea what I can do to get the newer revisions to work for me again. I would really like to make a back-up of my Eragon DVD so that the original doesn't get ruined.

    :bowdown: Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! :bowdown:

    Try this:

    a) Keep your license key file backed up safely
    b) Uninstall Anydvd (start-->all programs-->Slysoft--->Anydvd-->Uninstall)
    c) Reboot
    d) Try running a registry cleaner program at this point like CCleaner
    e) Download Anydvd 6.1.4.5 beta
    f) Exit all Slysoft programs (including Anydvd, Clonedvd2, Clonecd, Clonecdtray, Clonedvdmobile, etc.). Check Windows Task Manager if you have to.
    g) At this point disable your antivirus and firewall programs
    h) Install Anydvd 6.1.4.5 beta
    i) Reboot
    j) Install your license key (if required) http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=732
    k) At this point enable your antivirus and firewall programs

    Also, while this wouldn't explain the lockups, is DMA enabled for your burner?

    If all else fails just stay with 6.1.3.3. You don't need the newest version of AnyDVD to crack Eragon, it only has CSS and RCE encryption, no Sony junk. :D

    Yes, DMA, if available is noted. Should I change it to PIO?

    Finally! I have victory! I actually have two HP Pavilion ZD8000 laptops that this happened to and I have both of them working again. Thank you so much for your help! The CCleaner did the trick.
