    I recently bought new lightscribe 16x DVD+R Verbatim and have had problems making backups of my DVDs. The issue is near completion of the burn, it just freezes (not literally, the program is still resonding in task manager), but it will not complete. It's at different points each time, but always in the high 90-97% range, with only seconds remaining on the task bar. You can hear the dvd spin fast, then slow down, then fast again. It sometimes stays spinning fast. Other than the change in discs (I had been using HP DVD+R) nothing has changed on my PC. I did reinstal clonedvd as troubleshooting, but not luck. ALso, the same disc's did complete succesfully on another computer. Any ideas?

    1. Iolo Antivirus with System Mechanic issue

    It seems reasonable to suspect other Antivirus programs might interfere as well.
    Might as well add Avira Antivir Guard to the list: http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=6943

    2. Disable the .wav sound that plays at the end of the burn

    3. Try a custom size of 4300 if you're using regular single layer blank media

    Try setting a custom size of 4300 near the quality bar in Clonedvd (but if you're using good media, such as Taiyo Yuden Premium, Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, you shouldn't have to) if you're using regular single layer dvd-5 (4.7GB) discs. Bad burn quality is notorious around the end of discs. Using a custom disc size of 4300 ensures you won't be burning to the end.



    Other things to try that may help include:

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

    B. Use good quality media (Memorex, Ritek, Princo, Fuji (not made in Japan), TDK from Costco, and general Maxell that you can find in most stores (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.

    C. Try lowering your burn speed (not below 4x; if you have a 16x burner and 16x rated media try writing to it at 12x instead of 16x; an 8x burn speed on 16x rated media wouldn't be a bad idea either)

    D. Avoid sticker labels (they tend to cause problems)

    E. Try setting a custom size of 4300 in Clonedvd (but if you're using good media, you shouldn't have to) if you're using regular single layer dvd-5 (4.7GB) discs.



    Bad burn quality is notorious around the end of discs (see step E)
    and also at layer breaks when using low quality DL media (use Verbatim +R DL media made in Singapore or MAM-A 8x +R DL, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom")

    click http://forum.slysoft.com/announcement.php?f=20 and read fully. Do not post in other people's troubleshooting threads unless you're posting to help that person please.

    Did you look for a firmware update (instructions were posted previously)?

    Is your antivirus program causing a problem (try disabling it when using Clonedvd)?

    Did you disable the .wav sound?

    Did you try setting a custom size in Clonedvd?

    Have you tried using different blank media?
