    I am able to write and complete the burn process but the program just stalls out showing 100% completed but not properly closing or ejecting the dvd. I end up having to reboot the computer every time. Any suggestions.

    1. Iolo Antivirus with System Mechanic issue

    source http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=4027

    It seems reasonable to suspect other Antivirus programs might interfere as well.
    Might as well add Avira Antivir Guard to the list: http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=6943

    2. Disable the .wav sound that plays at the end of the burn

    3. Try a custom size of 4300 if you're using regular single layer blank media

    Try setting a custom size of 4300 near the quality bar in Clonedvd (but if you're using good media, such as Taiyo Yuden Premium, Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, you shouldn't have to) if you're using regular single layer dvd-5 (4.7GB) discs. Bad burn quality is notorious around the end of discs. Using a custom disc size of 4300 ensures you won't be burning to the end.



    Other things to try that may help include:

    A. Update your burner's firmware (if available)

    B. Use good quality media (Memorex, Ritek, Princo, Fuji (not made in Japan), TDK from Costco, and general Maxell that you can find in most stores (not made in Japan) are not good quality media. Are you using inferior blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden Premium, Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer is yes.
    If you use poor quality blank media, then you should expect problems.

    C. Try lowering your burn speed (not below 4x; if you have a 16x burner and 16x rated media try writing to it at 12x instead of 16x; an 8x burn speed on 16x rated media wouldn't be a bad idea either)

    D. Avoid sticker labels (they tend to cause problems)

    E. Try setting a custom size of 4300 in Clonedvd (but if you're using good media, you shouldn't have to) if you're using regular single layer dvd-5 (4.7GB) discs.



    Bad burn quality is notorious around the end of discs (see step E)
    and also at layer breaks when using low quality DL media (use Verbatim +R DL media made in Singapore, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom")

    DVD will not eject.....help!

    I seem to have some sort of conflict with the software and my hardware (HP DVD writer 640b). I can record a movie but after writing and completing the 100% and finishing the buffers, nothing happens. No window to eject and I cannot manually eject the dvd. I have to hard boot the computer to remove the dvd. Any help on what to do?

    Mr. Hog,
    What blank DVD's are you using? I have the exact same issue, same HP 640B DVD writer too. I had not experienced the problem until switching to Verbatim DVD+R 16x, but now get it frequently, have to hard reboot to get DVD out.

    Mr. Hog, I have the same writer and the same problem. If you find a solution please post it. There are many out here with the same problem and these people keep refering us to the same non-solutions. All other DVD programs work properly.
    Sincerely,

    It seems to me that we are at a point to either bring in an expert or change the DVD drive to another type of drive to fix this problem. I am not happy about either as I feel that the unit works fine on all other applications except this one. Any ideas?
