    Is any body having with gridiron gang? I have anydvd and clonedvd2 and I can see it write to the disc, but, it won't play. I've tried it in my dvd rom and in my dvd player. Any help in this matter would be great.

    1. Visit your burner's website, and update your burner's firmware if possible.

    2. Use good quality blank media. Try Verbatim (CMC--not Prodisc or MBIL), Maxell Broadcast Quality, Taiyo Yuden, etc.
    If you're going to make a double layer backup use Verbatim + R DL media (made in Singapore); I find
    most burners will burn this stuff well at 4x (to be safe); other burners can burn this stuff at 10x with
    no problems. Get to know your burner.

    3. Change the booktype of the blank media you're using to "dvd-rom". The best way to do this is through the
    software that came with your burner (if possible).

    Otherwise, use Nero cd-dvd speed to do this if you have to:
    This is a free program. (Click "Extra", then "Bitsetting". Make the change to "dvd-rom" and click "set".)

    If Nero cd-dvd speed doesn't work for you (options are greyed out), do this:

    a) Download and install imgburn:
    This is also a free program
    b) Insert your blank media in your burner.
    c) Select your burner in the "Destination" drop down box.
    d) Click "Tools"-->"Drive"-->"Change Booktype"
    e) Choose your burner
    f) Under "Change For:", select what you're using
    g) If your current setting is "dvd-rom", leave everything alone and exit Imgburn and ignore step "h)"
    h) Under "New setting", select "dvd-rom". Click "Change" and then "Ok". Exit Imgburn

    Some drives lose their settings each time you eject, so you might have to do this each and every time before you burn.

    You can skip this step if your burner defaults to dvd-rom automatically with blank media.

    I figured it out. It is a time issue. with all the menu's and extras, it wouldn't fit on the disc. when I went back and recorded just the movie, it worked great.

    That's pretty weird. Clonedvd2 should have errored out if you didn't have enough space on your disc.

    Regardless, I'm glad it's working for you now.
