    Let me try to answer this in very simple words (and let peer or james punish me if I do not use the correct technical terms): the "aggressive I/O mode" has been the default mode in AnyDVD before we released Update 6.6.2.3.

    Since then, the former "safe mode" is now the default mode, so, if you so want, AnyDVD is now set up with a muzzle by default, to avoid unwanted conflicts and issues.

    While CloneDVD and many other products are perfectly compatible with the softer default mode, there might be some third party tools that still require the aggressive I/O mode and if such a product is detected, AnyDVD will issue a warning to turn on the aggressive I/O mode in the program settings.

    You could use the "right mouse button" help on the aggressive I/O mode checkbox.

    "James" is right and a genius for the simple program function of the little Question mark in the upper right hand corner of the AnyDVD menu (left click once & carry it to any setting on the menu & left drop click to setting or right click in the setting or checkbox or area) and it will explain a good detail of every setting box in the menu. Even other areas that aren't a check box Like the "CSS Key Archive" where the keys are stored for each movie title. AnyDVD isn't just the best program there is for nothing, it is self contained technical reference manual, user guide, quick start manual...everything. If you can't find by the self contained help then you probably need help and read the forums before to see if the question was intelligently answered. It saves forum readers a lot of reading time. I hope I don't sound rude. I just learned about right clicking for the self contained help myself. Oh & "Aggressive Mode" ....If it ain't broke, don't fix it. They already fixed it in the AnyDVD History section by a setting warning you it may need the "Aggressive Mode" & to report any software that has conflicts with the mode. Good luck!

    I too couldn't understand 'aggressive mode' until my trusty AnyDVD no longer worked. I tried everything including different drives, reinstalling, etc but to no avail. AnyDVD kept scanning for a disk forever. I think I must have installed a program that prevented it working but which one? I was resigning myself to not being able to use it again when I decided to try 'aggressive mode' and AnyDVD burst into life again.

    As the dialog box after every AnyDVD update will tell you: A simple right mouse button click will do, too. (And it might even work better with some of the controls).

    Highly unlikely that changing this setting has anything to do with this problem (long scan). I'm sure it is only a coincidence. Change it back, I'm sure it will still work.
