    Changes in CloneDVD beta :

    - New: CloneDVD no longer uses the Windows filesystem, when reading from a Video DVD. It has now its own UDF parser / reader. Discs which cannot be read by Windows can now be copied with CloneDVD.
    - Fix (DVD): Small bugfix in "repairing defective disc structure" function.

    Not sure if anyone is epxeriencing this, but when i upgraded to this beta, i got bad media errors everytime clonedvd went to begin writing. It made 3 coasters, and did it on 2 different movies. I re-installed the previous version, and all was fine again.

    1. Use Anydvd beta: click

    You may need to reboot after installing if prompted to do so.

    2. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "default". Click "ok".

    3. Remove packet writing software from your system, including Roxio's Directcd, Nero's Incd, Roxio/Sonic's DragtoDisc, Drive Letter Access, CyberLink InstantBurn, NTI's Filecd, etc. Also if you happen to have MusicMatch installed, uninstall it.

    4. Use Clonedvd beta: click

    5. Follow the steps from this link in order: click (follow them step by step)

    If you're using +R DL blank discs, I recommend using Clonecd: click

    6. If you still have problems, then . . .

    a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original movie dvd in your burner. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    d) Select "Create Logfile"
    e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    g) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) 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)
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) 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)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"
    n) 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

    B) State the full a)error message(s) you encountered (click "details"), b)tell us what program(s) you were using when you received the error message(s), and c) describe in detail what you were doing when you received the error message(s). What problem are you having exactly?

    C) What blank media are you using? Specify

    1. brand name
    2. type (-R, +R, -RW, +RW, RAM, DL, ...),
    3. media code,
    4. capacity/size,
    5. batch codes/serial codes (often found printed on the inner plastic hub of the blank disc), and
    6. country (factory information would be great as well, if possible) where the media was made (look on the physical packaging; do not rely on programs to accurately give you this information).

    If you don't know how to obtain media codes, you may find the following programs useful:


    D) At what speed are you burning your blank media?

    Happy Customer, up and running again.

    First, I have to say, Thank you for a quick response. EXCELLENT support for your product. I've only been using it for a month now, and am a VERY happy customer. This program works flawlessly, and this forum is very informative and helpful.

    I went through your checklist of suggestions, and I did both a firmware update, and a clean install of clonedvd, everything is working smoothly now, not sure which of those two did it, but the fact of the matter is, my drive was reading and writing without a problem in the last version of clonedvd, and prior to a firmware update. I dont know what was different in new beta that caused a change, but it works now.

    One other note, the problem disc that first showed me this problem was Alvin and the Chipmunks, which is also a double-sided DVD, I dont know if this is a factor at all.

    Thanks again for quick turnaround time in responding. I couldnt be happier. Your program rocks.

    You're very welcome!

    Ah, thank you, but it's not my product. Clonedvd is developed by Elaborate Bytes. Slysoft is a reseller of Clonedvd. I don't work for Slysoft nor Elaborate Bytes.

    You're very welcome! Take care
