    Now i realize i may be one of the few (or only) people to copy dvd's while playing games but it's something i do often, so this is a problem of importance to me.

    if any of you do copy dvd's while playing games and use game jackal and clonedvd2 you'll have noticed that game jackals unique emulation causes a conflict with clonedvd2's reading. that is to say you cant use clonedvd2 while emulating a game with game jackal - even if the drive you are emulating on is different than the drive you are reading/burning your dvd.

    obviously this wont come out as a patch soon, and obviously not before S.S. release of GJ, but the question is when and if. i dont want to have to switch back and forth between dvd copying programs, and i shouldnt have to.

    When a GJ profile is running, a message pops up saying it's restricting access to your optical drives. Consequently, I don't see how you could run GJ profile and a burning application concurrently.

    yeah it would be great to do them at the same time but then again burning dose use up system resources and it makes other aps lag so I don't think it would be worth it in the long hall

    actually i can run GJ emulation and copy DVD's with other programs (i have been using 1click dvdcopy5) and it works fine as long as you are reading/writing with a different drive than GJ is emulating on

    i can burn dvd's and play games at the same time with no lag and still get a fast burn. i have a lot of RAM and a good cpu and gpu.

    Hmm . . When running Neverwinter Nights 2, I can't import discs in Clonedvd2 while running GJ with any of my optical drives.

    Are you using dvd43 with 1-click's cprx or are you using Anydvd for decryption?

    In general, it doesn't really matter what your system specs are. Playing games (especially ones that eat a lot of system resources) while burning increases the chance of engaging your burner's buffer underrun protection, which, in turn, tends to produce poor quality burns (in such instances, the discs may work, but pi/po/jitter scans indicate poor burn quality).

    no, i have been using anydvd

    and i understand that but i havent had such problems. i have 4 gb ram 64 bit dual core 4800 opteron. i am always multitasking with burns, whether watching and burning or playing games and burning and i havent noticed any problems.
