    I read the instruction on the thread "HUGE FAQ list, check before posting !!!!!!!! ". I am still having one problem. I am using DVD Decrypter 3.5.1.0. I first read the ISO file and saved this file on my hard drive. I then selected MODE>ISO>WRITE. I select SOURCE and found both the ISO File and the MDS file. As the thread stated I selected the ISO file but DVD Decrypter gave me an error message stating "You should of selected the MDS file and not this one. I'll do it for you automatically this time, but don't do it again." I can't select the ISO file. How can I solve this problem? This is the first time I have attempted to do this so please explain in layman terms. Thanks

    I selected the MDS file but then got another error message.

    DEVICEIOCONTROL (FSCTL_LOCK_VOLUME) FAILED
    DEVICE [0:1:0] SONY DVDRW DW-D18A VYS2 (E:) (ATA)
    UNABLE TO LOCKVOLUME FOR EXCLUSIVE ACCESS
    REASON ACCESS DENIED

    I had the option to ignore this message and continue, so I did, but then got another error message.

    I/O ERROR!

    I don't need to know what all this means just how to fix it so I can backup my games. Thank for any input

    Try closing all other programs first and don't open any new ones until it's finished.

    Well some program is trying to access your burner. Did you close everything running in the taskbar and background?

    I hit Ctrl Alt Del and made sure no applications were open. Any idea how to tell what applications might be running in the background. Thanks

    This is most commonly caused by packet writing apps such as InCD, DLA or Drag to Disc. Part of the way they work is to keep constant access to the drive so when another burning app needs to gain exclusive access to the drive it can't and the write process will be aborted. If you have any packet writing apps, uninstall them and see if that clears up your problem.

    If that doesn't work it could also be Windows built in IMAPI burning service which also likes to keep access to the drive. It's a useless app to begin with and even more so when you have dedicated burning software installed.

    IMAPI can be disabled by following these steps:

    Start >
    Control Panel >
    Administrative Tools >
    Services >

    Now scroll down to IMAPI CD-Burning COM Service and double click it.

    In the Properties window under the General tab look for the Startup Type drop down menu and select Disabled. Click OK and you're good to go.



    If, and only if, the steps above don't work you can set Decrypter to where it doesn't need to lock the drive by doing the following:

    Tools > Settings > ISO Write Mode > then uncheck "Lock Volume - Exclusive Access".

    By using this method you're possibly leaving yourself open to failed burns if another app interrupts the burn process.

    I have Nero 6.0 Ultra edition installed which I assume has the newest ASPI Drivers. I don't know how to check them to see if they are the correct ones. Thank you

    I did everything you suggested with no luck. I did not have these DLL files installed so I installed them. After rebooting the computer I ran DVD Decrypter and got the same error message. Thanks for your help. Any other suggestions?

    Did you set Decrypter to use the new ASPI?

    Tools > Settings > I/O > ASPI - WINASPI32.DLL

    only other thing i can think of is to check if you have the latest firm ware for your writer but it might be worth waiting to see if nephilim has any other ideas

    I think my DMA is enabled. I don't know if it helps but I am able to use DVD Shrink. Thanks
