    I am using the latest version of Any Dvd and have a recurring problem. I am able to copy most movies w/o any problems but quite often my Copy freezes towards the end of the movie. I have tried changing media but get the same problem. The copy always seem to freeze near the end.I usually copy only the main movie w/o the extras.I am currently using Fuji DVD+R 16x speed. Help please....

    If you are using 16x rated media then I'd burn at 12x or 8x.

    Refer here:

    That post has a number of things to make note of. All of it is useful but toward the bottom under General Advice is what I'm directing you to that post for.

    Your problem isn't with AnyDVD. The problem is likely either with the media or the burn speed.

    Using any DVD and Dvd Platinum to back up my dvd's. Iwas told that I might be using too high of a recording speed due to my copies freezing up near the end of the movies.

    If you are using AnyDVD and DVDFab Platinum at the same time then you are going to have to disable the protections removal within DVDFab because it may cause problems if you don't.

    Alternately, you can use the AnyDVD ripper to rip the files to your HDD and then process those files with DVDFab Platinum.

    For help with changing the burn speeds in DVDFab Platinum you should refer to their support forums. I have never used DVDFab to burn a disc and probably never will. Their forums are here:

    1. Update your burner's firmware (if available)

    2. Use good quality media (Memorex, Ritek, Princo, Fuji, TDK from Costco, and Maxell that are not made in Japan are not good quality media). Are you using inferior blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden (not Valueline), Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer is yes.
    If you use poor quality blank media, then you should expect problems.

    For +R DL blank media, use Verbatim made in Singapore or MAM-A 8x +R DL.

    3. Try lowering your burn speed a little (if you have a 16x burner and 16x rated media try writing to it at 12x or 8x instead of 16x)

    4. If you're using +R, +RW, or +R DL media, change the booktype to "dvd-rom" (step 3)

    5. Avoid sticker labels (they tend to cause problems)

    6. Try setting a custom size of 4300 in whatever burning program you're using (but if you're using good media, you shouldn't have to) if you're using regular single layer dvd-5 (4.7GB) discs.

    7. Download Nero cd-dvd speed. It's a free program. Select the tab labeled "scandisc". Insert the problematic backup disc, select the appropriate drive letter, and click "start". If Nero cd-dvd speed reports read errors, your backup is bad (which is the most likely case), your optical drive may be slowly dying, or your optical drive simply doesn't like the disc (or your choice of blank media)--even if the disc looks fine.

    Bad burn quality is notorious around the end of discs (see step 6)
    and also at layer breaks when using low quality DL media (use Verbatim +R DL media made in Singapore or MAM-A 8x +R DL, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom")

    Freezing and skipping towards the end of the main title is almost always due to using inferior quality media. Yes, there really is a ton of media sold in the marketplace that is like this, and yes, this media really is that bad.

    Read what Webslinger wrote and follow his suggestions. I personally suggest buying only Verbatim media from now on.
