  • DVD drive problems... Anyone have any ideas?

    I have started looking into ripping my DVD's to HDD in plans for my carputer... I have 30-40 DVD's and want as many as possible on there along with my whole CD collection... anyway, here is my problem...

    I started researching at and found DVD Decryptor along with a slew of other utilities... I have updated my ASPI driver and seems to be installed correctly according to one of the untilities... I have checked to see that my DVD ROM Firmware is updated (Pioneer DVD-116R)... the drive came with my Sony Vail computer... worked fine up until I installed XP... anyway, when I have a DVD in the drive and try running DVD Decryptor, it says "Media not ready, tray open" or something like that... I have double checked that I am on the correct drive (have seperate CDRW and DVD ROM drives)... still no workie...

    Anyone have suggestions? I have done some searching around and have had ZERO luck. I know this isn't my Carputer, but figured there are some talented computer people here... maybe you can help... THANKS in advance!
