    Can anyone help me please? My DVD burner stopped burning DVDs so I got Dell to replace it and I'm having the same problem with the new burner. Dell says I have to reinstall my operating system because it is a software problem. I think maybe ANYDVD had something to do with this issue so I uninstalled ANYDVD through add/remove programs but I still can't burn DVD's. I can play them, but can't burn them. Sonic says "No compatible Recordable or Rewritable Device could be found on your system" and Windows says "Windows encountered a problem when trying to copy this file"

    Do I need to go into my registry to further delete AnyDVD files? Dell says it is a software problem, that the drive is working fine. Could ANYDVD have corrupted something. Could anybody help me get my dvd burner working again?

    I read somewhere to run ccleaner to clean my registry, would this help?

    I doubt this is an AnyDVD problem.

    The Message you appear to be getting is saying you have no burning program loaded. Any DVD does not burn it decrypts, and since discs play that means {if AnyDVD is still installed or uninstalled}thats not the problem, you need to find your burning software be it Nero,CloneCD, Clone DVD or Freeware to burn the disc.

    Then this is not an Anydvd issue. If Anydvd is not on your system it's impossible for it to interfere with anything.

    I think it is a problem with AnyDVD this is exactly what just happened to me. My drive was working fine an hour ago, I tried out AnyDVD, uninstalled it, and now my drive doesn't work, I cannot install a new driver, I uninstall the device from device manager and it just fails :(

    Scan for hardware changes after uninstalling. Without doing that, it just means that windows doesn't recognize the disc drive. Btw, this post is 7 years old. And AnyDVD is a decrypter, not a writer so is probably not the problem. Have you rebooted?

    For now, we'll forget that you pulled up a thread that was almost 7 years old, and the fact that it has nothing at all to do with your situation.
