So I had noticed previously that nero recode sometimes hanged after importing the files created by clone dvd2, but didn't think much of it. I saw the description of the bugfixes for the latest version, and it seems to indicate that this issue is fixed. However, when trying to author Pirates Of The Carraibean (the first one), I get the same behavior. I'm using the latest version of both Nero Recode and CloneDvd2. Thanks!
