    After weeks of interferences issue hence the payment and install of Slysoft's, ANYDVD, I get the following message from "Customer support."
    Hi,

    "Sorry. We do not know why Intervideo fails to burn. AnyDVD is only involved
    in reading out the DVD, not in burning. Please contact the Intervideo
    support.

    Best regards,

    John Smith
    Customer Support"

    Ok, John Smith....

    So, ANYDVD has interferred with decrypter, shrink, intervideo, and even Nero 6...And that's the only reply I get after having provided detailed information? Ok, I am glad lots of folk on this site like it and I hope ANYDVD does you well...As for me, its been another big waste of cashola...
    Thanks...

    If you have the latest version of DVD Decrypter(remember, it's free) you really could have done without the anydvd headache. Sorry you are having problems. Good luck

    Thanks for the kind words guys. I finally just erased ANYDVD and now Decrypter and Shrink are fine. It's funny that free DVD software actually works better than paid software. probably the most ironic thing about it was when I called Intervideo support, I knew more about their product than they did...And I know almost NOTHING....Strange...
    Thanks!

    Free software being better than software you paid for is [bold]not always the case[/bold], but it's great when it works out that way for you. Thought I'd add that before a ANYDVD whore gave us their oranges and apples or it works great for me story.

    Very strange. I've used AnyDVD with Nero 6, DVD Decrypter, RecordNow DX, CopyToDVD and DVD Shrink without a single hitch. AnyDVD has been one of the most compatible apps I've dealt with. I don't doubt that it's tied into your problems somehow but yours is a rare occurrence.

    @wolfniggr,
    Might be a little harsh on AnyDVD users, don't you think?

    I have had my share of problems, but like Nephilim--I have many programs I can use such as Sonic Record Now, Nero, Decrypter, Shrink etc. I purchased AnyDVD a few months ago and now always have it running in the background--Just makes life easier when burning (for me anyway)and thankfully has not interfered with any other software. I don't like that the Customer Support person at Slysoft couldn't help you more though--Have you tried talking with anybody at InterVideo?--hopefully someone here will see your thread and think--"That happened to me!" and be able to help-Good Luck

    All companies will try to blame problems on some other manufacturer's product.

    I had a problem with burning using DVD Copy 3 too. Whenever I tried to tell it to burn a disc it would just freeze and I'd have to close it down in Task Manager. Also, I did some strange things to the movies, but I won't get into that. Just thought I'd let you know, DVD Copy 3 comes with some problems (or did for me at least).

    As far as AnyDVD, I have used it with tons of different proggys and it always works great.

    And all tech support sucks. I called Dell and the lady I talked to didn't know a damn thing about a computer or anything electronic. Better off just talking to us here.

    Not on the users, the ones who swear it is the answer to all ripping problems. The one's who act like it's the second comming of the messiah. I think anydvd is a great program, but the way some people go on, they act like it'll even wipe your ass when you run out of toilet paper.

    So I'll say it again so no one will misunderstand, [bold]I think anydvd is a great program[/bold].

    @monument,
    Hi most people that have had trouble with AnyDVD was due to the fact that they had some other software that is also trying to continually read your DVD/CD ROM drives. Something like InCD, Drag To Disk, DVD43 or something like that. Do you happen to have any proggys installed like this that need access to your drive? I don't believe AnyDVD is the whole problem it may be getting interferance from another proggy, but the point is thousands are using it without a problem so there is nothing wrong with the software. More than likely a conflict with some other proggy on your system and DVD Shrink, Decrypter, DVDCopy3 wouldn't be the conflict as I have all of those installed and they work perfectly fine with AnyDVD. What is the make and model of your drive?

    RecordNow uses DLA for their packet writing. If you have this installed it could be the cause of your problems too.

    AnyDVD is up to version 5.2 now. Maybe that fixed some of the problems experienced here.

    I think it may be a typo in the notice.

    AnyDVD v5.0
    AnyDVD is a tool that removes automatically the CSS copy protection and RPC region codes from your DVDs in the moment you insert the disc in.

    The last update I see for ANYDVD is 4.6.3.1. I see they also updated their website. Help! I'm I missing something (that wouldn't surprise me) Update says no newer versions.
    I personally prefer AnyDVD with Nero - I do sometimes use it with shrink. No problems.

    Thanks BBMayo
    I sometimes have a habit of reading things to quickly so it wouldn't suprise me if I did miss something. Plus they are called Sly Soft so you never know :)

    Bilbo65 -
    I downloaded it on another computer (from Sly Soft) that doesn't and never had it and the only one I get is 4.6.3.1. I check the link you give and it has 5.0 - why would AD have it and not Sly Soft on their website? Just curious.
