How many years past a four year college degree do you need to use AnyDVD. I guess four years wasn't enough for me because I can't seem to use it. I downloaded AnyDVD ver 22.214.171.124 which has a 21 day trial on it to try it. I wanted to try it because it boasts a on the fly copy with no hard drive backup. However, after I install it the icon is there and it appears I have everything set properly but it sits there and does nothing. Under DVD it is set properly, and it is on enable DVD and autostart. I have a Toshiba DVD drive which I have a movie in and a Liteon DVD burner. It finds the movie disk but nothing at all happens.I have video DVD under fast and noisy and it correctly identifies both of my dvd drives. Under CSS keys it shows the movie correctly in the drive.Under program I have enable any dvd, autostart, and autocheck for new anydvd version. I have a blank dvd in the burner, but I assume after anydvd rips it doesn't compress, so you have to use something else like shrink to compress?? If so I don't see how you can get an "on the fly" dvd as it wouldn't fit on a 4.7gig blank. I guess I need a better help file to explain exactly how this anydvd works, I couldn't find one at slysoft where I downloaded it.
