    PLEASE HELP ME, before I used to make several copies from one original dvd but since a couple of weeks ago after one burn, CLONEDVD just hangs, freezes, it also damages my new dvds and I cannot cancel it I have to restart my computer.
    I tried unistalling/installing, updates, registry cleaning, nothing helps. I'm running windows vista. I tried whatever was in this forum before posting.
    In my xp computer I can make several copies at the time.
    Thank you.

    Do all four steps below please.


    If you're using Vista, then click this.

    If you have Zonealarm on your system, ensure Anydvd is being given permission to access the trusted zone.
    Similarly if you have a firewall, antivirus or spyware program--ensure it's not blocking Anydvd from running.
    Provided you downloaded Anydvd from Slysoft's website, Anydvd is a safe program (you have nothing
    to be paranoid about).

    If you have System Mechanic, System Mechanic Pro, or any kind of registry monitoring program, please ensure
    these programs are allowing Anydvd's installation program to modify your registry--as those programs can block
    Anydvd from installing properly.

    linx05 says Teatimer enabled on Spybot can cause problems during installation: visit http://forum.slysoft.com/showpost.php?p=36804&postcount=5

    Try to ensure you don't have other unnecessary programs running in the background,
    such as Powerdvd while using Clonedvd. visit http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=6674



    1. Update your burner's firmware (if available)

    2. Use good quality media (Memorex, Ritek, Princo, Fuji, TDK from Costco, and Maxell that are not made in Japan are not good quality media). Are you using inferior blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden Premium, Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer is yes.
    If you use poor quality blank media, then you should expect problems.

    3. i. For XP with ide burners
    Click this

    Do what it says to do if you have XP and an ide burner/optical drive.

    ii. For Vista with ide burners

    Go into device manager, and check to ensure you're using standard Microsoft ide busmaster drivers.

    Right click on your PCI IDE Bus Master controller, and remove it. Ensure that it also removes the driver for your DVD/CD rom. Reboot. Your system should find hardware. After your system is finished installing hardware, reboot again.

    4. a) Download imgburn. It's a free program: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download
    (it's also an excellent program imo)

    b) Go to Tools > Filter Driver Load Order. Click "Clipboard". Then paste the information you pasted into your clipboard into your next post (ctrl-v).
