    Has anyone ever received an error message on clone dvd at the beginning of a clone 'invalid start block' says to attempt to copy dvd to hard drive (again). I tried removing clone dvd and any dvd and adding them back and this did not solve the problem.

    invalid start block code

    I have used clone and any dvd successfully for months. All of the sudden I get a message saying 'invalid start block code' it says to attempt to burn the dvd to harddrive (again) and I just keep getting the same message. I have tried to remove and re-add both programs and encounter the same issue.

    2. There is no packet writing software on that computer that I am aware of.
    3. CloneDVD2 Version, AnyDVD Version
    4. Problem occurs with all disc's be it original dvd or already copied dvd.
    5. This system is a Dell and we have XP professional.
    6. blank media is memorex dvd-rrecordable 16X 4.7GB 120 min

    I am lost on the rest of the answers you wanted. As I said it is the same computer, same dvd writer, same blank media I have used for months. No changes. I get this error on both original dvd or copies.

    I am not a tech type person so please any help would be greatly appreciated.

    1. Are you following this guide:
    Please ensure you are (print it out if you have to)

    2. What burner are you using?

    With Anydvd running on your toolbar, click the red fox icon. Click "status" on the left. Select the drive letter that corresponds with your burner on the right. Copy and paste the information in that window for me to see here (hold left mouse button and drag mouse over the text; then right click the mouse button; select "copy". Bring the mouse cursor to your post; right click; and then select "paste").

    Here is an example of what I want:

    "No Disc is present in Drive E:!
    PLEXTOR DVDRPX-760A 1.06 12/26/0609:00"

    This tells me that my burner is a Plextor PX-760A with firmware 1.06.
