    After having no problems, writing to Verbatim DVD+R DL and other name brand DL discs, now my

    BenQ DW1655 and Clone DVD2 (With Any DVD) will not not burn to any DL discs. Either I get

    the error below or the DL discs are invisible to the drive/program and it will keep asking

    for a disc to put in.
    It just creates DL coasters and keeps asking for another disc to ruin!

    Clone DVD2 Writing to Media was not successful:
    media write error WriteDVD 10 11W2

    I tried udating both Clone DVD2 and Any DVD but it made no difference.
    There have been no system or hardware changes at all since the failures began. It's getting

    very expensive with all the DL coasters being created!
    All other DVD+ or - media continue to burn correctly with Clone DVD2.

    By the way, someone above mentioned the Plextor 760A. I have a horror story with plextor and

    this drive on my other system. It would rarely reach the rated speed of the media used and

    never burned any DL discs without making them coasters. Now, right before the expiration of

    the waranty, the drive creates errors in about 50% of all burns. Maybe just I got a very

    expensive lemon! I wrote to Plextor four times before getting a response, which came, right

    after the warranty expired on the drive. So they tell me I'm out of luck!

    Any suggestions?
    Thank You

    That is the burner that I use almost exclusively, and quite frankly, it's excellent provided you did not get an early TLA. Plextor, I believe, also has free lifetime technical support, so you could have easily called them if you wanted to. No one should be writing to MKM 001 (Verbatim +R DL) at 6x-8x anyway.

    By the way, I only burn +R DL. I never compress. I haven't used single layer blank discs in over a year. I always use this method:
    click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=327 (I don't use Clonedvd for DL burning)

    As far as your errors go, if nothing else has changed, it sounds as though your burner is dying. The capacity to burn +R DL properly is one of the first things to go on a burner. That said,

    a)Click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    b) Navigate to "Program Settings".
    c) Click "enable logging".
    d) Click "ok".
    e) Put the original disc in your optical drive/reader.
    f) Go to your My Documents folder
    g) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip"
    h) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG]
    i) if you don't see that icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    j) a small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    k) click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    l) click "upload"

    All junk. And Memorex +R DL is mostly made by Ritek anyway. Junk junk junk

    Only use Verbatim +R DL (made in Singapore)
