I have the same burn problem I have seen others discribe. 1 st I'm running AnyDVD 18.104.22.168 with CloneDVD2 22.214.171.124 my DVD writer is Aopen DUW1616/ARR and this morning was running firmware Ver. 1020. What happens is durring buckup of DVD when CloneDVD2 is writing it will stop and give error. This always happens at the same place (45% complete). After reading suggestions from others, this morning I upgraded my firmware to AOpen DUW1616/ARR Ver. 1030 which appears to be the latest version of firmware. I also am running a trial download of Dangerous Brothers DVD Region+CCS ver. 126.96.36.199. the only thing that changed after upgrades was it now stops at 88% over and over. If a peticular movie i'm backing up works once it seems to work every time. If it does'nt, it stops same spot every time. Currently, i'm using Sony DVD-R ver. 2.1/1x-16 media but this has happend with other media types, all well know brands. usually I can over come this issue buy burning with DVDshrink or Nero Recode2 but when it is a Movie backup that Nero & Shrink won't read and Clone2 won't burn i'm done, example saw3.
