CloneBD disappointed me, but I am very happy with CloneBD now.

    I have been a Slysoft/Redfox man for a long long time, and have always been 100% lifetime. Today
    I tried to copy my Apocalypto using CloneBd. I wanted a great copy so I used Verbatim 50gb disc,
    and unfortunately CloneBd could not recognize it as a 50gb disc. I got disgusted and finally burned
    Apocalypto blu ray on the same 50gb disc with ImgBurn. I am not complaining. I am just disappointed.
    I have used CloneBd to burn other blu ray 50gb disc without problem. I hope this isn't something that
    is going to continue with my other bluray disc.

    Well since you don't explain what you were doing and how you were doing it, which option(s) you picked, what the MID of the blanks are (important CMC Magnetics bought out verbatim) nor did you provide a cloneBD logfile, there's little to nothing to work with here unfortunately.

    I am not supplying a log file, and I also understand that Cmc Mag bought out Verbatim. I expect nothing from Redfox. I was just saying I am disappointed.
    Nothing more. I will continue to use Anydvd, Clonedvd, and CloneBd.

    If you won't be providing a logfile, which would help in determining the cause of the burn failure, that begs the question "Why post at all then?". Without logfiles, nobody can help you or find a possible cause/fix.

    I have been using it since, and all is fine.

    The only issue I've had with CloneBD thus far is audio slightly out of sync and it was related to a bad rip I created with a different program.

    I purchased CloneBd many years ago, but didn't use it... After starting to use it there were mistakes. I realize that the mistake were
    operator errors not CloneBd.

    CloneBD is a wonderful program, plus the fact that if you do not want to use encoding, the program is free. 90% of the options on it can be used forever without ever having to buy the program. I for one love having in my toolbox.

    Speaking for me personally, once I figured out "the trick" for AMD I started to use it again and then even more so with my UHD's because I make them lossless.

    I REALLY enjoy CloneBD I just wish it would get some update love.

    The program is fine as is. Its works as it should. If people have an issue with AMD encoding, call AMD.

    I am sorry but I have to disagree. The issue is with the application. Encoding/decoding works perfectly fine in other apps to my knowledge. In this instance CloneBD is the issue. However, as I mentioned, with AMD if you turn off hardware decode (the "trick") the encode portion works fine and since that is what it's mostly doing you can get by.

    EDIT - I am by no means an expert on other apps nor the whole hardware encode vs decode thing. I am speaking from my own experience only.

    We all know what feature is at the top of my list. I want to be able to use clonebd for all my mkv rips. But that requires one more feature to be added. Come on elby clause... I've been a partially more or less kinda good boy this year. Lmao
