Hi: I have recently AEF'ed (reformated) my laptop, and reinstalled all my favorite software from my ext. HD. I tried using DVD Decrypter and it's crapping out on me. This is my normal process and has been successful with over 400 movies: Use DVD Decrypter to rip the original, use DVD Shrink to analyze and back it up, then use DVD Decrypter to burn it on a blank media (Fuji Film has been loyal to me). But now, after the PC cleaning, it get an error when I try to use DVD Decrypter to burn it on a blank media: Device Io Control (FSCTL_LOCK_VOLUME) Failed! Device [1:0:0]_NEC DVD+RW ND-6100A 104D(D(ATA) Unable to lock volume for exclusive access. Reason: Access is denied. I click to retry, but I am force to ignore the error. DVD Decrypter will continue to work like it is burning, and say it's successful at the end of operation, but the media is still blank (no video/audio folders/files on it. I am at a loss and hope that someone could please help a novice at the end of his wits. Also, any suggestions on better DVD burning software procedures would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much and I think it's awesome how so many experts provide such detailed and helpful assistance here at AfterDawn.
