I tossed it. Why? Just downloaded DVDSHRINK and that did what I needed.

In reply to: DVD X COPY Activation

If you have purchased a legitimate copy of DVDXCopy, when you install it, the program itself will dial out to the net to activate itself. You will also be given an option to activate using a different computer that is connected to the net so that you can get that activation information onto a floppy disk so if sometime in the future you need it again, you will have it already in case that site shuts down permanently. If you go to the 321studios website, there is nowhere on that site anymore that indicates you can activate it from there.....you have to install the program first to do it.

I purchased DVD X COPY in August 2004. I finally got a DVD burner and am having difficulty getting the program to activate. I tried to activate using the "another computer" option. The file this process copies to the floppy is a .html rather than a .reg.

I tried to just activate using the normal process. I get error 100.

Do you have any suggestions, short of just throwing the program away?

put your floppy into the drive on the computer that is connected to the net......then open the floppy and click the .html link and it will download automatically to the floppy disk the .reg info you need in order to get it registered/activated to your computer with the program installed on it.

you will open the floppy disk, click the .reg file and it will ask if you want to merge the file into your registry...say yes. And the activation is done.

You will now always have the .reg file on the floppy disk should you ever have to format the drive and start over again so you will repeat this .reg click procress after installing DVDXCopy to your newly formatted system.

Toni,

I had already tried what you suggest. However, I went through the steps again. Whwn I open the html I go the DVDXCOPY.com site. Rather than giving me the .reg file, I got the message "The license ID is not valid or Password you entered did not match"

I verified both the license and Password numbers on the sticker attached to the DVD case. I tried again and got the same message. I purchased the program on line from Purplus.com in April. I did contact Purplus when the program would not activate the first time. The reply was that it had been over 30 days since the software was purchased therefore they could do nothing to help.

Am I now just plain our of luck?

Try the alternatives?

In reply to: Re: DVD X COPY Activation

I noted it and it works, but for some they must keep trying the discontinued item.

Well Joe,

In reply to: Re: DVD X COPY Activation

Since an alternative solution was mentioned in this thread, you can decide if that will do and then toss that old software in the can.

Have you tried this site to activate it?

In reply to: dvd x copy

The original site

used to be around still long enough to download the activation code to a floppy disk but I'm not sure if it's still there since it's been about three months since I've been there. However, somebody else in these forums mentioned that this site will be able to activate it for you instead.

This program stopped working when I installed SP2. Maybe it's related... Do you have XP with SP2?

In reply to: Re: DVD X COPY Activation

More and more programs, including Media Player and burner programs (and updates for them you may download) are including code to detect copyrighted material and basically some are able to disable other programs you might legally own when they spot references to them if those other programs can be used to copy copyrighted material.

Have you tried reinstalling DVDXCopy (after uninstalling it) fresh to see if it can now work again?

Re: DVD X COPY Activation

In reply to: DVD X COPY Activation

With all due regard to the other posters, since Studios321(OEM) is belly-up and out of business, you should start looking for another pgm. when it comes to be too much of a hassle. So far, I haven't heard of any on going support beyond the initial release, etc., so DVDXcopy and related product line will be doo doo products. Sad -----Willy

FYI - posting your email isn't a good idea as email gleamers take such for spam usage.

The point is that

In reply to: Re: DVD X COPY Activation

if you have a legally owned copy of this program which cost nearly $100 to purchase before the FCC got it taken out of the market, you should be able to continue to use it whether there is tech support for it or not. Many people still use W95 without tech support from MS and are still happy with that version, even with the internet security pitfalls, since it can still work quite well for simple needs. You just have to make up your mind that you will be your own tech support and trouble shooter, and if you are willing to go the extra mile to get the most out of something you paid for, even knowing newer versions or products are out there, who are we to tell them to dump what they own? Our 'function' in the Help Forums here is to do just that...help find a way to make their products work for them until they decide for themselves to dump something they've spent good money for and buy something else that sooner or later will no longer work or have support for.

With the computer world, this is an every day occurance due to technology constantly evolving into something bigger and badder and there is no way to avoid that, so we salvage what we are still willing to try to salvage.

Life's tough and its his/her choice to continue in the matter of wanting to use the pgm. In no way, did I say, you "have to" go elsewhere but to imply if things get to be too much of a hassle, it maybe time to quit. Of course the user has to decide when to quit. Yeah, I pay for past pgms/products and got stuck with them but still made some use of it, but for the long haul, there's weren't that many conversion pgms. to xfer from one pgm. to another's format or the h/w got so left behind, it was time to move on. Any long time user should get a feel of this fact, "time to move on" is pretty much comes and goes often enough. Sometimes support can be summed up as best said, "It's(he's) dead Jim" Happy BTW, I just loved WP5.1(dos) but finally I went to MS Word/Office. -----Willy

Re: The point is that

In reply to: Re: The point is that

I would submit that the point is: If you have a legally purchased piece of software and it works, fine. If it doesn't work, then you need to find out why. In this case, the activation process is disabled since Studio 321 is no longer a viable, legal entity in the USA. Since they still are active in the world at large, there should be a process to at least activate the software and the person who bought it should be able to use it until they no longer choose to or the software stops being useful to them.

The process would work if you could get a patch from Studio 321 (Europe or Canada) whereby whatever .dll or .dat file (I surmise) used to link to the website would process to the Europe or Canada based website instead of the now closed-down (defunct) USA website which was forced to close due to the "sue-happy" nature of our society.

DVD X Copy

In reply to: Re: The point is that

I have been having the same problems trying to reinstall my software. I did find a source that says that they can help activate programs purchased from 321 Studios, I have emailed them for help tonight but haven't had time to get a reply. You may want to try them also, the address is dvdxcopyinternational.com and I wish us both luck because none of my IDs, usernames or passwords work either. Bye
