    Recently, when I make a backup of a dvd I have been having a problem. I am running anydvd and clone dvd 2 (latest versions) along with a brand new LG 16X burner. I only have it set to 12X to try and compensate for any potential problems and once it has read the original and I put in a blank disc I will get an error after about 5 minutes. Once I replace it with another blank disc it burns fine. Although I still get a clean copy in the end I am wasting an extra disc with each backup. I have read all the FAQ's and theres nothing in there about this problem. Anybody experiencing this?

    Follow the steps:

    1. i. For XP with ide burners
    Click this

    Do what it says to do if you have XP and an ide burner/optical drive.

    ii. For Vista with ide burners

    Go into device manager, and check to ensure you're using standard Microsoft ide busmaster drivers.

    Right click on your PCI IDE Bus Master controller, and remove it. Ensure that it also removes the driver for your DVD/CD rom. Reboot. Your system should find hardware. After your system is finished installing hardware, reboot again.

    click http://forum.slysoft.com/showpost.php?p=48880&postcount=20 to get a better idea of what I'm asking for if you're using Vista.

    2. a)Click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    b) Navigate to "Program Settings".
    c) Click "enable logging".
    d) Click "ok".
    e) Put the original disc in your optical drive/reader.
    f) Go to your My Documents folder
    g) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip"
    h) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG]
    i) if you don't see that icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    j) a small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    k) click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    l) click "upload"

    3. What blank media are you using? Specify a) brand name b)type (-R, +R, -RW, +RW, RAM, DL, etc.) c)media code, d) capacity/size, e) batch codes/serial codes (often found printed on the inner plastic hub of the blank disc), and f)country (factory information would be great as well, if possible) where the media was made (look on the physical packaging; do not rely on programs to accurately give you this information).

    If you don't know how to obtain media codes, you may find the following programs useful:

    4. Visit your burner's website, and update your burner's firmware if possible.

    I think webslinger hit the nail on the head and 8x isn't good for everything. I constantly burn at 12x with my best results.

    Using Quality Media and a quality DVD Burner with the current up to date DVD Burner Firmware an individual should be able to Burn blank DVD Media at or close to the Rated Speed of the blank Media. Making the bold and unsubstantiated statement "The Best Speed For Burning Is 8x Speed" indicates the lack of knowledge of the dynamic art and science of burning DVD Media.
