I've been using V10 for a little while now, ever since they released it. Today it came up and said that it has expired and I have to buy it even to just use the rip function. What's up with that? I've gone back to V9 for the time being. Also, I've experienced a lot of issues with V10, everything from crashes to not opening the drives when done to looking like it is ripping and when it's done I find nothing in then destination folder. Guess I said all that to say I'm not very impressed with the direction it's going. Why can't somebody make a product that just rips so I can back up my discs without 1,000 bells and whistles and all that bloat. It's got to take a least a minute for V10 to load and I'm running on a fairly fast machine. Your thoughts please on all of the above.
