    I don't see a way to edit a directory or media selection prior to burning in CloneDVD, is this a function that will be added in a newer revision?
    Simply put, if you try to burn files that are already on your HD to CloneDVD under "Write Existing Data" tab it doesn't give you the option to select your directories or media...
    Also, separate topic, but would you happen to know even though my book setting (bitsetting) is set to DVD-ROM but when burned to a DVD+R DL it can't be read. Have been unsuccessful in reading all but one DVD+R DL which was burned using DVDShrink 3.2, but none are readable with CloneDVD or AnyDVD...

    I have successfully changed the booksetting to DVD-R DL with TDK DVD+R DL media but am unsuccessful at reading the disc on my portable player or home player that reads only DVD-R media. I have one disc that played a DVD+R DL on both players that was burned with DVDShrink 3.2; incidentally this has been the only DVD+R DL that has been readable even after changing the bitsetting to accomadate DVD-R DL and have been unsuccessful with CloveDVD or AnyDVD being able to be read...

    @ brawlman,

    Only DVD +R (Plus) Media can be Book Type Bit Set to DVD-ROM. DVR –R (Minus) Media cannot be Book Type Bit Set to DVD-ROM.

    Also it should be noted that DL Media is very picky. The only DL Media that consistently produces quality error free results is Verbatim DL MKM001/MKM003 Mitsubishi Kagaku Media.

    Is there ne reason why DVDShrink 3.2 was successful 1x and CloneDVD2 has not been? Also, for some reason now I can't get DVDShrink 3.2 to get past the writing stage; I can open the files but then I get "Not Responding". Looks like some others have had the same issue with DVDShrink 3.2 and am still looking into their forum. By the way thanks for the reply Coaster, I appreciate it :rock:

    Clonedvd doesn't change booktype--and I'd advise you not to burn at 1x. Also if you use crummy blank media (and you are), you can expect inconsistent results.

    click and follow the steps in the order they are listed. Use Verbatim +R DL (preferably made in Singapore) or MAM-A 8x +R DL only. Everything else should be avoided.

    Also don't post in other people's troubleshooting threads unless you want to help them please: click and read fully. Thank you

    Don't use the Write Existing Data option

    Of course not; that's what "Write Existing Data" means; it doesn't mean change existing data.

    Do not post about the exact same thing in the multiple threads please.
