    I'm having problems since uploading updates last week ... getting media write error message when trying to burn stating 'probably caused by bad media' and with error message 'writedvd 1011W2'. I've tried the usual reload of software, different dvd brands but with no luck. Any advice welcome. M

    9. I'm getting Writedvd 10 11 W2 errors. Why?

    a) Are you using junk blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden (not Valueline), Verbatim,, 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.
    For +R DL blank media use Verbatim (preferably made in Singapore) or MAM-A +R DL 8x only.
    b) Click this and read FULLY (because the same advice applies)
    c) Do you have Musicmatch Jukebox on your system? If so, click this
    d) Remove packet writing software from your system (including Directcd, Incd, drag to disc, DLA, etc.)
    e) Click this and read
    i) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    ii) Put the problematic original movie dvd in your burner. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    iii) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    iv) Select "Create Logfile"
    v) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    vi) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    viii) Go to your My Documents folder

    x) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG] (in other words, look for the paperclip after clicking "quote" or when creating a new thread)
    xi) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    xii) A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    xiii) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    xiv) click "upload"
