I realize you are volunteers and generally do a fine job, but in this case, please read the question before trying to answer. I will state the question in a differnt way:
I did NOT create a disk with Disk Copy, it happens to be the program that EMC9 uses to rip DVDs to AVI files stored on a hard drive.
After successfully creating the AVI on my hard drive:
Source = DVD in drive Y
Destination = desktop\my documents\LG_VDR Movie 1.avi
I am no longer able to explore any DVDs inserted into the source drive (Y).
I need to explore these DVDs because I want to move some of the files on them to a hard drive (nothing to do with any Roxio app).
When exploring ANY DVD in drive Y, they all look like the screen shots above. In fact, even with NO disk in the drive, I get the same results. Normally if you try to explore and empty drive, Windows Explorer says "Pease insert a disk in drive Y".
If I use the Roxio Disk Utility, it does see the disks (or lack of disks as the case may be) correctly.
Now do you understand the problem? Disk Copy has set something in Windows that has redirected my "y" drive somewhere (because Windows doesn't see the correct disk in the drive or even recognize if the drive is empty).
Exploring the drive always gives me a view of my desktop.
To be absolutely clear. Here is how the folloing screen shot was created:
Remove disk from drive Y
Double click on My Computer
Right Click on Drive Y
If you still can't figure this one out, maybe you can pass it along to Gary.
