I am using Nero 8.1.10b and a trial of AnyDVD 126.96.36.199 running under Vista Ultimate on a Shuttle SG33G5M. I am facing problems with Nero Recode. The scenario is like this: 1. I can play DVDs with both PowerDVD 7.3 and Nero Showtime 2. I start Nero Recode. It has problems reading the VOB files on the DVD (pause for quite a long time), and cannot play/preview the movie (or individual VOB) files. Then it says it cannot read the VOB files. 3. If I close Nero Recode, neither Showtime nor PowerDVD can read the DVD. I have to eject and re-insert the DVD, then both Showtime and PowerDVD can read it just fine. What is the problem with recode? Could the problem be compatibility with the latest Recode and AnyDVD? Thanks for any assistance.
