Hi there. I've been using CloneDVD for quite a while now without problems... that is until now. I have been doing a bit of researching on this and other forums but have as yet not encountered a problem that is similar enough to give me some idea as to waht the solution maybe. I am not the worlds most technical person so you will have to bare with me as I describe the problem. Everything is fine until I get to the burn, clonedvd does it's setting of borders and flushing something? As soon as it says it's writing to the disc it gives me the "writing failed... bad media message." The strange thing is if I insert a disc and retry it will do it without a problem, same seems to go for if I do it from the hard drive rather than straight from disc, the write is fine. This is a consistent problem and only occurs with the first disc I try and will ALWAYS write on the second disc without fail. I'm using Taiyo Yuden discs so am a bit pushed to believe it's bad media. I cannot think of any reason for this, the only thing I have to add is that I have recently uninstalled Interactual DVD player from my computer and had to point my autorun to powerdvd instead, although have no idea if this would cause a problem or not but thought I'd mention it. Does anyone have any idea's please.
