    I have had no problems using clone dvd ....except when I attempt to burn to a dvd-r dl. I get the dreaded " source data to large " message. I have tried this on both pcs that I have and get the same result. Both have liteon burners one a 20 speed and one a 16 speed. And both have the latest firm ware installed on them.

    Now I can burn the image to my hard drive and use Nero to burn it to a dual layer. But that kind of defeats the purpose of clone dvd......And yes, tried it on verbatum disc too........Any suggestions.......?

    1) Do not use dvd-r DL. Use dvd+R DL only (and only use Verbatim made in Singapore)

    2. Select "dvd-9" near the quality bar in Clonedvd

    problem is my toshieba dvd player doesnt play any plus formated dvds. So if I want to go with dl then it has to be a problem burning iso files to -dl with nero.....just takes forever going that route.

    Change the booktype to dvd-rom: (step 3)

    That is what bitsetting (booktyping) is for. It tells your player that your +R disks are DVD-ROM and then they will play.

    Sorry for the silly question, but you're not using cd-rs, right?

    And your definitely using DL discs and not single layer dvd-rs, right?

    Yes, It has dvd-r dl written on it and I verified it with smart burn.
