I'd just give it a break and keep your eyes peeled on the post Big Dave posted. I don't think there's any tricks now that will put it back, at least for now.

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

But, to not even be able to install the program seems like it might be on my end, no?

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

Have not used this program in awhile. Still have about 30 dollars credit. After reading the last few messages I decided to see if the program still worked on my computer. It still does but ask me if I want to upgrade to a newer version. I'm going to pass for now.

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

Over in the official support forum, one of the Vudu engineers just posted:

"We are looking into the blank D2D page issue, and will update V2G soon"

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

But why would I not even be able to install the program from an older version stored on my PC?

Dude. You'll just have to wait like the rest of us. Except me, I never updated it and it still works. Just found that out a while ago.

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

So unfortunately I can't use D2D any longer. My antiquated PC won't run the new version. I tried to install the older version of program but no luck. Remind me again what this Google conversion program is all about? Is it legal? Can you link download?

I have been thru the same issues, I've installed it, reinstalled it and messed around with the companion app, Adobe Air to no avail. And that's with the new version, old version.

The Google program you are speaking of is Free2d. Due to politeness of this forum, I won't throw a link up here. Just Google: Free2d. It will be literally the first thing to come up. But, I've played with that too with no help to my Disc to Digital.

As far as legality, it's a gray area. I use it in a legal manner when my discs won't work or my lazy butt doesn't feel like going upstairs to my mancave to grab a disc. But I'm sure plenty of others use it in the other fashion. That's all I'll say here

There are a lot of steps involved, and I know your head would implode.

I'm too nice ...up on the top of the screen to the right should be option to download that Zip file. Then you download that zip file, extract it to your desktop. Go in that directory on your desktop, and run the program.

Then you are having the same issue I am as of two weeks ago (which made me sad since I had done D2D for about 200 titles.) I might end up installing it on my wife's machine or use her old hard drive (which I made into an external) and see if any of that helps. I'm tempted to try CinemaNow's version (which of course doesn't work with Free2d) but nobody seems to really know all the titles that work on there, not even their support team.

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

More than likely. Haven't you mentioned a few times before you've been having issues with it? May need to see about upgrading.

People do have it up and working...you and me and bunches of others don't. But I think it has zero to do with the users intelligence or "crappy machines". I think there is a serious bug somewhere in their software and they haven't fixed it yet. Most people seem to think its in Adobe AIR somewhere. If you have a second machine, I would give it a roll personally. Otherwise, looks like you are stuck with the rest of us and awaiting a patch of some sort.

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

I haven't updated Adobe AIR since I first started using Free2D, and I'm obviously using the version of Vudu2Go that is part of the Free2D system (an old version). I uninstalled the newer version that I had previously.

Please figure out your AIR version if you could and I'll go search it out since I'm out of ideas. I think this is honestly the key. Something in AIR is F'ed up since it worked fine before and that's the only thing that changed on mine within the last month. Thank you

Re: The "Official" Disc to Digital Discussion Thread

Every time they've had issues with the program, it's been Adobe Air related. They need a new interface that doesn't use it.
