I am so frustrated. I am having the same issue with the "Bad media message". I am using a Plextor 716-A burner w/ current firmware (1.11). I am running current versions of both CloneDVD and AnyDVD. I was using TDK media from Costco, but recently bought some Taiyo Yuden media....no luck. I uninstalled and reinstalled CloneDVD; I deleted both Roxio and Arcsoft off my system. I have no idea what to do next. Is my burner bad? It's only ~2 years old.......PLEASE HELP.
