    Has anyone had any success with this? I have VISTA Ultimate installed and have been burning coasters ever since.

    Hi :)
    Welcome fingers.:agree: :clap:
    Not enough info. You need to take a look at Webslingers stickies.
    I run Vista Ultimate & have had no problems burning to any of my DVDRW's using CloneDVD2, or Nero etc.
    What is your drive make/model/firmware.

    CloneDVD2 works good for me on Vista.

    I was having a similar problem. I'm running Windows Vista Ultimate (32-Bit). I recently upgraded from XP. In XP, it worked great. In Vista, CloneDVD, no-workee so good.

    I had AnyDVD running and CloneDVD and when CloneDVD went to start the scan on the Audio and Subtitle settings, the whole pc froze. I had to cold boot the pc to recovery.

    In the event viewer I found this:
    "The program CloneDVD2.exe version stopped interacting with Windows and was closed. To see if more information about the problem is available, check the problem history in the Problem Reports and Solutions control panel. Process ID: c44 Start Time: 01c747ac818c433c Termination Time: 60000"

    But a few entries earlier I found this in the event viewer"
    "A thread in process C:\Program Files\McAfee\VirusScan Enterprise\Mcshield.exe took longer than 90000 ms to complete a request.
    The process will be terminated. Thread id : 3372 (0xd2c)
    Thread address : 0x77520F34
    Thread message :

    Build VSCORE. / 5100.194
    Object being scanned = \Device\CdRom1\VIDEO_TS\VIDEO_TS.VOB
    by C:\Program Files\Elaborate Bytes\CloneDVD2\CloneDVD2.exe"

    By adjusting my Virus scan On-Access-Scan to exclude my DVD drives, CloneDVD work perfectly again.

    Maybe your settings are similiar?

    Same here. I am burning coasters left and right. I use an external usb drive as the writer and an internal as the reader.

    I have gone back to my XP drive for copying movies because I dont think clonedvd and Vista are ready for prime time. It seems to coaster movies that take the whole disc because every failure would be deep into the writing process. When I burned flags of our fathers it coastered everytime I switched back to XP and no problem at all. Same machine same hardware same everything just switched my sata cable to the xp and whola all was well again. Because there are so many people saying "works here..." I dont think the problem will be resolved anytime soon so I've just gone back to XP for sure fired burning.

    Even anydvd will not properly autostart in Vista and again the " works here " crowd cause the problem never to be seriously looked at. I can assure it does not work right and if slysoft wants me to video tape it I will. I personally think the vista ' works here ' crowd are using just one internal drive and are not sampling enough movies. Personally I think Vista is causing timing problems with the writer and clonedvd is interrupting it as a write error and hence the "oh no" message.... just my personal opinion.

    1) Try enabling "safe mode" in Anydvd. Test

    2) Look for an updated Sata busmaster driver for your motherboard (must be for Vista)

    Vista? Thanks, but no thanks

    I go back decades with computers, and a good rule of thumb is,

    "If it ain't broke, don't fix it !!! "

    It was only a few months ago that I switched from 98SE to XP media edition. The issue was a need to put in very large HDD's, because 98SE is limited to about 130-gig partitions. XP today seems to be a stable OS with some number of capabilities 98SE didn't have; however there will have to be some sort of very compelling issue over something which can't be done under XP before I consider any further changes.
