    I have tried to use two different types of media with CloneDVD. One is DVD-R and the other is DVD-RW. Both media are from the same manufacturer and both are recognized by the hard drive when used without the CloneDVD software. When I try to burn a movie using DVD-RW discs, there is no problem. When I try to use DVD-R discs "Insert blank media" or something similar shows up. Would anyone happen to know why and how, if possible, I could fix the problem?

    Thanks

    1. Specify a)the brand and b)model number of your optical reader and writer with c)firmware versions for these optical drives. d) Let us know what operating system (version number and service pack, if applicable) you're using as well. e) Check to see if there's an updated firmware version for your burner and your reader.

    2. What blank media are you using? Specify a) brand name b)type (-R, +R, -RW, +RW, RAM, DL, etc.) c)media code, d) capacity/size, e) batch codes/serial codes (often found printed on the inner plastic hub of the blank disc), and f)country (factory information would be great as well, if possible) where the media was made (look on the physical packaging; do not rely on programs to accurately give you this information).

    If you don't know how to obtain media codes, you may find the following programs useful:

    3. Are you using junk blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden (8x) premium, Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer to this question is "yes". Stay far away from Memorex, Princo, Ritek, regular Maxell, Fuji, etc. that are not made in Japan.
