    Using CloneDVD mobile, version 1.1.4.0, when inserting a new DVD, information on the structure of the previous disc should be cleared. Right now I get an error "trying to repair defective DVD structure". Forcing a rescan of the disc clears the previous disc's information

    Pressing the Restart button should also discard current information and force a rescan of the disc. This may be a bug if the Restart button works for others - Does it?

    Information on the chapters on the DVD defaults to be sorted by time in descending order. I would like it to sort by item number and have the program remember this preference.

    Settings for previous output methods are not saved (resolution, video quality) but the filename from the previous DVD is saved. I would like the opposite to occur, or have user preference options to select which options are saved and which ones are reset each time.

    No, but this is intentional. A rescan is forced by hitting RETURN in the source selection.

    This is intentional, as the feature usually is the longest title it will be listed (and selected) first. You already can change the order.

    This is correct, there is some room for improvement.

    I wouldn't mind being able to select the ouput format when I'm converting for my iPod video (late 2006 model). Currently, as far as I can tell, CloneDVD mobile creates the MPEG-4 Part 2 simple profile videos. An option to convert into H.264/AVC instead would be much appreciated.

    Also, I don't know if anyone from Slysoft has noticed my other thread yet, but there seems to be a bug when converting for the iPod (maybe it affects other profiles, I'm not sure) that results in the first second or so of the video being cut off, and the first frame suffering from pixelation. Anyway, here's the thread... several others have reported having the same problem since I first posted it:

    Thanks for the suggestion pawtracks. I did something similar for just the quality setting, but it gets 'undone' when upgrading. I'd be nice if it could be a program setting.

    James,

    Thanks for the reply.

    The trouble with that method is that the program is already trying to scan the new disc by that time, and it displays an error and then says it is trying to repair the disc (or something). I think the program should know when the disc has been changed, and do the rescan automatically.

    True, but as a wish list item, I would like the program to remember the user's sort preference. I find that I have to sort it for every DVD. Again, just a wish that would make the program more user friendly.

    As I'm sure will happen over time. :)
