    Hello,

    I used anydvd version 6.3.1.5 with clondvd2 version 2.9.1.5 to backup American Gangster. It will not play either on my computer with Nero vision or on my dvd player. I used Clonedvd2 with Copy DVD titles with perserve menus. It appears that the 4-.99GB files are there, but will not play. I have had an occasional similar problem with a very few movies, what gives?

    Also, how can I quickly check the copy to make certain that it is playable?

    Thank you.

    Randy

    1) a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original disc in your optical drive/reader. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    d) Select "Create Logfile"
    e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    g) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG]
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) 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)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"

    2) 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:

    http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com and http://www.dvdinfopro.com/

    3) At what speed are you burning your blank media?

    More information anydvd and dvd-ID

    Hello,

    I have attached the anydvd log file and the dvd-id information. I am not certain because clonedvd just says "speed maximum".

    Thank you.
    take care,
    Randy

    Where did you get your Taiyo Yudens from? Are they valueline or premiums? Don't use valueline.

    Also click http://www.supermediastore.com/taiyo-yuden-how-to-tell-fake-or-real.html to see if you have fake Taiyo Yudens.

    I would also try a different burner to see if yours is dying.
