Thanks for that Josey....any input will be most welcome.

BTW: I too am a proud owner of AnyDVD. The price may seem a tad steep at first glance but when the lifetime of free upgrades is taken into consideration, it is very inexpensive....and it does a great job too.

Cheers.....Jim

As a quick follow-up, after installing this software last night one of my optical drives stopped working, or at least appears to be failing. I don't know if the two events were simply coincidence or were in fact a direct result....we'll see.

I have since uninstalled the Aimersoft ripper and still am having no luck with my optical drive (thankfully I have two so I'm not S.O.L.).

I'll report back upon further testing....

Okay, a bit of concern here! One may have nothing to do with the other, but I'm very suspicious of the coincidence.

After unistalling Aimersoft Blu Ray Ripper from my PC (after not having the best of luck with it over the past couple of weeks) I can no longer get one of my optical drives (Pioneer DVR-112D) to work. The problem appeared immediately following the uninstall. I googled it and have found that there are a handful of different programs that can lead to in this problem upon their removal, it's not just Aimersort (e.g. Roxio).

Like I said, it may be a weird coincidence, but I really doubt it. Now, I'm trying to find a resolution to correct the issue so that I can get my drive back. It appears in the Device Manager and says it's working properly but when I place a disc in the drive it simply doesn't work....it keeps asking me to insert a disc.

Any ideas guys/girls?

joseywales, sorry to know about all this trouble.

Assuming that u have the drivers for ur optical drive(s), you could uninstall the drivers from Device Manager, remove the device, and reboot.

Once rebooted insert the device again. It should prompt for drivers. Now browse to the drivers u have on system/CD.DVD and let it install.

Let us know if it helped.

Regards, Grr

Tried your suggestion and the problem persists When the issue appeared over the past week or so I went so far as to buy a replacement drive, only to since find out since that the drive is fine, the issue is a registry change that occurred during the unistall process of the Aimersoft product. I've not been able to identify exactly what it is, or more importantly how to fix it. I tried installing the new optical drive in place of the Pioneer and the same error message showed up..."Please insert a disc in Drive H". I have the latest firmware and the latest drivers installed...no dice!

I'm kinda freaked because if it is in fact a corrupted registry I really don't like messing with that thing at all! I'll continue to google for the resolution. In the interim if anybody else on the DCT forum has an idea I'd love to hear from you.....

Josey - Try this mate:

Reboot the computer and as soon as BIOS has finished (or just before it finishes) start tapping the 'F8' key repeatedly. You must start tapping the key before the operating system actaully starts to load.

If you get the timing right you should see a black screen with a list of different options, including 'Safe Mode'. Look down the list of options and locate the one for.."[b:10o9p5hl]Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)[/b:10o9p5hl]." Highlight that option by using the up and down arrow keys and then press[b:10o9p5hl] Enter[/b:10o9p5hl].

It is quite likely that changes have been made in the registry section...[b:10o9p5hl]HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSet[/b:10o9p5hl]. Implementing the last known good configuration option will restore that information.

Let us know how you get on please,
Jim

I'll give that a whirl ozbloke....wish me luck! Before I restart my PC I wanted to post the notepad document that I was directed to create following an online search to remedy this problem. You'll notice it addresses the very same registry key that you referenced. I tried it and the problem didn't go away....

Okay, here goes a try with your suggestion.......

No dice. Selected Last Known Good Configuration, booted, inserted DVD into affected drive and it wouldn't recognize it (it was spinning and the activity light was flashing, but in Windows Explorer it doesn't show the drive as having a disc in it).

Any other ideas?

Sorry to hear that josey....this is most likely a registry issue.....something leftover from the Aimersoft uninstall. You have already stated you do not really wish to delve into that area but it may, in fact, be necessary. (if you want to fix it yourself, that is).

Cheers....Jim

No luck thus far resolving the issue on my own

I'm gonna post a support ticket at Protonic and see if they're able to help. I've had great success w/them in the past so I still have some hope.....

After trying to restore to a "previous safe state" within Windows Restore Point utility I still have the same issue. I sooooo wish I hadn't installed this software! Their tech support (and I use that term VERY loosely, is abysmal! It's like they have no concept of computers!).

I'll be sure to try and update this post with my saga.....

Hey Josey - Sorry to hear you haven't managed to overcome the problem yet mate.

We could try a simple registry search using the title of the software (or parts thereof) as search terms and see what that turns up. Is not difficult to do nor dangerous. Let us know if you would like to try that??

Cheers...Jim

I searched my registry, using the search term aimersoft, and it found one entry. It appeared in the following location:

HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionAppCompatFlagsCompatibility AssistantPersisted

It said it was located here on my PC:

I:Program Files (x86)AimersoftBlu Ray Ripper Freeunins000.exe

I looked at the contents of this directory and there is no trace of Aimersoft.

Does this give you any new ideas?

Hey Josey - Yes mate, delete that entry and see if that fixes it. You have uninstalled the software but there are some leftover entries in the registry which do not get deleted during the uninstall process. That is why you cannot find anything in the specified target folder.

Now you no longer have the Aimersoft software installed it is perfectly safe to delete any registry entries pertaining to that product.

Unfortunately, there are probably other entries remaining in the registry which contain no reference to the parent software (Aimersoft)....tracking those down will be much more difficult. Also, if the Aimersoft software changed the value of any native registry entries during installation, that would greatly increase the degree of difficulty

Anyway, delete that one and see what happens...can't hurt and one never knows!!

Cheers....Jim

P.S. You could also try a registry search using the search terms 'Blu Ray' and 'Blu Ray Ripper'. See if either of those throw anything up.
