DVD Decrypter Unable to Lock Volume for exclusive access

I have been using DVD Decrypter to burn my ISO files for years, but just recently have started encountering "Unable to Lock Volume for Exclusive Access" errors about half the time. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Have you recently added some software to your system that accesses your DVD drive(s)?

Check out in Process Explorer what has got a hold of your drive. Open Process Explorer, click on the Find icon and type Cdrom. It will tell you exactly what has got the drive and you can take remedial action.

I've noticed a couple of things that can lock a drive:
Close AnyDVD if you have it installed.
End Windows Media Player process if it is running.

It was Windows Media Player

You guys were right on. A recent update to WMP was causing it. Thanks
