Using sony vaio notebook w/ slysoft

I have been told by an IT friend of mine that sony put anti-ripping software in every one of its computers. When I initially purchased the slysoft product it was working perfectly (over two years ago). Now, I can't burn a single dvd. I keep recieving 'bad media' error messages, even though i am using good quality sony dvd's. This happened to me before, when I used to use decrypter and shrink once the new dvd codings came out and it was no longer usefull. Not sure whether it is the anydvd/clone dvd combo which is the problem, or whether sony has placed a software into the computer which is causing the problem. Below are the ways which i have tried to rip/burn:

1. any dvd/ clone dvd
2. any dvd rip to hard drive/ shrink 3.2
3. any dvd " " " " / decrypter
4. any dvd/ nero recode

None of these have worked. Also, could it be the fact that ny computer is 3 yrs. old. Would changing the dvd-r drive fix the problem?

Any and all suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thank you,

The PC is not the problem. There is no "anti-ripping" software built into it.
Have you tried a different brand of media? At 3 yrs. old, it is a also possible that your DVDRW is failing.

have used tdk, sony, and memorex. All are presently giving the same results.
Try Verbatims or Tys and make sure your firmware is up to date.
