    Alright, I have successfully copied many, many dvds with anydvd and clonedvd2 up until a couple of weeks ago. I have continuously updated the software with each released update. Now, I can successfully burn dvds; but, when I put the dvd back in the drive to play it, my computer won't read it and I get the infamous anydvd media error, and this is immediately after burning it. What could I possibly be doing wrong? The only parameters that have changed are the updates. I am still using the same writer, media, etc.

    Thanks.

    Does the DVD work in your normal DVD players besides the computer DVD player?

    Seems to make me believe it's the DVDs then, and not your computer. Either the burner isn't working, or the DVDs are damaged are the only logical conclusions that come to my mind.

    Thanks. I think the dvds are fine because it is in the same pack as before when they were working fine.

    Also, for a while the dvd movie was being written as files to the dvd before not working at all now. The confusing part is that I get the successful message after each burn, but then it won't play. I just don't get it. As you said I might need to think about getting a new dvd writer. Any suggestions?

    Yes the new LG H42 is a great one. It is on sale at various online retailers like Newegg.com for about 29.00USD.

    Media and Write speed?

    What brand & type of media are you using? And what writing speed did you select in CloneDVD 2? This sounds very much like a burning too fast issue or poor quality media issue, or both. Recommended: Use High Quality media and burn at 1/2 the rated media speed or 4x. Whichever is suited for your DVD writer.

    I don't know what's up with people suggesting such slow burn speeds. I burn at max everytime and never have these problems. Not to mention at 4x, it would take forever. If the drive is made to burn at 16x, you should be able to.

    Depends on the media, the burner, and the firmware . . .
