    When I try to play my DVDs in my Harman/Kardon DVD 101 the dvds will not play. I get a Disk Error from my player. This just started in the last few months. The original will play fine. I use Any DVD and Clone DVD and the only thing that has changed is the upgrades from SlySoft. My copies will play fine on my PC, but not in my Harman/Kardon. Can any one help me out with this? I have been using SlySoft Products for a couple of years now and love it, but now for the first time I am having a problem. I will appreciate any help.
    Thank you in advance.:bowdown:

    Have you changed the brand or type of discs? What you are experiencing is commonly associated with disc/player incompatibility.

    I am using Maxwell DVD+R. I do believe this is the first time I have used Maxwell, but I have always used DVD+R. I have mostly used Office Depot for for a long time. The Maxwells were on sell. Maybe I should try another brand. Thanks for responding oldjoe.

    I would bet the Maxell's are the problem. They are NOT good media and obviously your DVD layer doesn't like them. Go back to what you were using previously or get some Verbatim. If you really want to use the Maxell's....change the booktype to DVD-ROM and they will most likely play in anything.

    Thanks. How do I change the booktype to DVD-ROM? Is that option in SLySofts Software?

    10. My backups play on my computer or standalone dvd player, but not in something else. Why?

    First, if the backup is playing in a standalone dvd player or on your computer that means Clonedvd worked.

    The most common reason why you're having this problem (if the backup doesn't work in a standalone dvd player) is due to a compatibility issue between the blank media you're using and whatever you're using to play the backup in (standalone dvd player, for example). Basically your dvd player, dvd-rom drive, etc. doesn't like the blank media you're using (or if you're using +R media, you didn't change the booktype to "dvd-rom"). You can try choosing other blank media (+r instead of -r, for example, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom")--or buy a different standalone dvd player (or a different dvd-rom drive, burner, etc.).

    If you're using dvd-r media and your standalone dvd player gives you a message similar to ""Play Prohibited, please check disc", use dvd+r media instead and change the booktype to "dvd-rom" (see "b)" below).

    a) Are you using junk blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden (not valueline), Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer to this question is "yes".
    b) Click this and read FULLY (especially take a look at point 4 for more information on bitsetting/booktyping, but all points are very important)

    The same factors also apply to why the backup doesn't play in your computer (but there can be other factors including buggy or poorly installed dvd player software, bad drivers, etc.).

    It's also possible the playback device/player that can't play the disc is slowly dying.

    click (step 3)

    And that must be done before burning.
