If this is a dupe, please delete, I thought I'd been bumped for timeout.

I've used dBPowerAmp for years (V 10.?). Light, good quality and all w/o the bloat of other programs.
Most of what I've done was using my Sony DVD burner DRU-810 because it is faster than my CD drive.
Recently, I could not get tags from freedb and spent a huge amount of time chasing other on-line servers (freedb, freedb2, musicbrainz etc.). Message was always that the album was not found vs not connecting.

By accident, I found that although the Sony drive doesn't hook up, my older HP CD RW drive works fine. Any suggestions?

BTW, using other programs that rely on external databases (including freedb) with the Sony drive and the same CD work fine.

Any suggestions? Using the HP is a work around but pretty slow.

Thanks.

Why not update to the latest version, r12, or at least r11.5?

I guess I'd like to know if that would somehow fix the problem before I purchase the program. I'm OK w/ paying for the new version vs using V10 shareware if the issue was fixed. It doesn't make sense that something that worked for a couple of years just fine should just stop w/o an explanation.

So any technical input?

Thanks

Did you switch firewalls or security software recently? Install anything new?

I have a Sony DRU 810A and it works just fine with all the latest dBpowerAMP
programs as well with AMG and freedb.
