    I'm ending up with a lot of coasters here. Here's the message I get from Clone DVD2 under details. WriteDVD 10 11 W2

    It says "A write error has occurred, probably caused by bad media." I have tried dvd-r and dvd+r. Same result. HELP!

    9. I'm getting Writedvd 10 11 W2 errors. Why?

    a) Are you using junk blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden (not Valueline), Verbatim,, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer to this question is "yes". Stay far away from Memorex, Princo, Ritek, regular Maxell, Fuji, etc. that are not made in Japan.
    b) Click this and read FULLY (because the same advice applies)
    c) Do you have Musicmatch Jukebox on your system? If so, click this
    d) Remove packet writing software from your system (including Directcd, Incd, drag to disc, DLA, etc.)
    e) Click this and read
    f) i) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    ii) Put the problematic original movie dvd in your burner. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    iii) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    iv) Select "Create Logfile"
    v) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    vi) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    viii) Go to your My Documents folder
    ix) You will see a zip file called "" (or something similar; see step f)
    x) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG] (in other words, look for the paperclip after clicking "quote" or when creating a new thread)
    xi) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    xii) 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)
    xiii) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    xiv) click "upload"
    xv) Close the window. When you submit reply, or submit a new thread, the .zip file will be attached automatically for us to take a look at

    Here you are. Thanks for the directions. I am using Dynex dvd-r as well as maxell dvd+r, but I have never had an issue with them in the past.

    These are both junk and likely the root of your problem. Stating that you've used them before without issue is fairly meaningless because they are so inconsistent in quality.

    Bad quality blank media can vary in results from disc to disc, even within the same spindle. With good blank media you can play "find the bad blank" game. With inferior quality blank media you get to play "find the blank that works" game. And even when inferior blank media does work, you can play the "will my backups still play after 6 months (or even after two years)" game.

    Use good quality blank media (Taiyo Yuden Premium, Verbatim, Maxell Plus, Maxell Broadcast Quality). Avoid Ritek, Memorex, Regular Maxell blank media that you can find in most stores that are not made in Japan, Fuji, TDK from Costco, and Princo. Also, on average, it's wise to avoid blank media that's made in China or Hong Kong.

    If you're using double layer blank media, use Verbatim +R DL (preferably made in Singapore) or MAM-A 8x +R DL.

    1. Update your burner's firmware (if available)

    2. Use good quality media (Memorex, Ritek, Princo, Fuji, TDK from Costco, and Maxell that are not made in Japan are not good quality media). Are you using inferior blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden (not valueline), Verbatim, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer is yes.
    If you use poor quality blank media, then you should expect problems.


    For +R DL blank media, use Verbatim made in Singapore or MAM-A 8x +R DL.

    3. Try lowering your burn speed (not below 4x; if you have a 16x burner and 16x rated media try writing to it at 12x instead of 16x; an 8x burn speed on 16x rated media wouldn't be a bad idea either)

    4. If you're using +R, +RW, or +R DL media, change the booktype to "dvd-rom" (step 3)

    5. Avoid sticker labels (they tend to cause problems)

    6. Try setting a custom size of 4300 in Clonedvd (but if you're using good media, you shouldn't have to) if you're using regular single layer dvd-5 (4.7GB) discs.

    If you're in the U.S., is a source for Verbatim is a source for Taiyo Yuden (do not buy Valueline)

    I stated TDK from Costco is NOT good blank media.

    Use Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden blank media.

    1. B's Recorder Gold . . . I'm not positive about whether this filter may cause issues, but it's possible.

    If you can't figure out how to remove that filter, do this:

    i) Create a backup of your registry
    ii) Download imgburn. It's a free program:
    (it's also an excellent program imo)
    iii) Go to Tools > Filter Driver Load Order.Select "cdrbsdrv ". Click "remove selected filter". Click "ok". Reboot

    Whatever program installed that filter will no longer work properly.

    2. Update your burner's firmware (if available)

    3. Use Taiyo Yuden (not valueline) or Verbatim blank media (preferably not made in India)

    4. If you're using +R, +RW, or +R DL media, change the booktype to "dvd-rom" before burning.
    click (step 3)

    5. Do not burn at "maximum" (if you want to be safe, try burning at half the rated speed of the blank media that you're using)
