I've also been using ANYDVD and CLONEDVD for more than a year without any problems. When I upgraded to (and installed) the latest version of ANYDVD I started getting "Bad Media" errors. I have read the FAQ section as well as all the other posts on this issue and havent been able to fix the problem. Before you raise the all too frequent "junk media" argument - I use Verbatim DVD +RW as well as TDK +RW disks, and have been using them successfully for ages without any glitches. The other night I succeeded in making a copy of an original DVD after selecting the "retry" option several times after the "Bad Media" error occurred. Since then no luck. My question is this - how is it possible to make copies of disks perfectly for months and all of a sudden (nothing changed except my version of ANYDVD) I am having problems? Please help as I am frustrated beyond belief.
