    I simply can't get movies to copy on anything but Double Layer dvds. I've even tried to copy a 'copy' that is on a 4.7gb dvd and the the blank 4.7gb doesn't work.

    No doubt there is a little something I'm missing here. Can anyone explain to me what I need to do to be able to copy on a standard 4.7 disc.

    If you using CloneDvd2 and are complely new to this go to the title configuration window, look at the bottom of screen and there is a drag window, and put it on DVD-5. If you already know this then i don't mean to insult your intelligence. Other then that, there might be some driver errors or conflictions. Which is stuff i'm not good at.

    Thanks TD but I guess that's not it. I did try that...actually, that window was DVD-5 by default. (hey, at least I feel a little less Duh-ish)
    I hope someone can offer some good advice for me.

    Yep, I'm a 'DUH'! Finally got around running Nero Toolbox and discovered my DVD burner loves DVD+R DL it doesn't support DVD+R..only DVD-R. Assuming that can't be fixed I'm off to buy some different DVDs.

    Thanks for the help.

    I'm back for more help wasn't that.

    Back from the Wallyworld with DVD-R discs and while the burner does at least recognize them I get an error message that something is wrong with the media.

    The burner is: LITE-ON SOHW 1633S

    Anyone have any experience with this burner? I guess the only thing left is to buy another burner...any suggestions anyone?

    You can get good burners for less than $40.

    Good RW drives

    Since last year, I've been using a pair of
    " SONY DVD RW DW-G120A " drives with excellent results. They were purchased as the "OEM package" about $40 each. Installed as drives Y and Z, generally I read a dvd on Z and write on Y; mostly wanting to see which one fails first. In terms of hours, the reading drive runs much more, about 30 min. or so for each dvd; but the writing is usually done in 6-8 minutes per disk.

    For best results I suggest everyone use drives from a major manufacturer, such as Sony; as well as good blanks. Currently I use 100-packs of TDK +R blanks from costco.
