    When I use AnyDVD/CloneDVD2 to back up my DVD's, I like to retain the ISO file on my hard drive until I have had a chance to play the actual backup completely t make sure there are no glitches. For some reason, it just doesn't happen. Everything in the process works fine to the atual burn of the backup however there is never an ISO file left on my hard drive.

    delete temp video files is unchecked...

    I don't see any other options that should affect this problem one way or the other. any ideas??

    You're selecting "ISO/UDF image" under "output method", right?

    If you want to make a full disc iso, choose "Write existing data".

    Retaining the ISO file

    [
    What I would like to be able to do is a complete "1 Step" from rip to burn and also capture the ISO file on my hard drive. I am able to do the "1 step" but the iso file is never there so I have to do another step to create the ISO. Using the "Write existing data" option doesn't appear to be the solution. Maybe there just isn't a way to do it.

    You can make the ISO first, but you must choose ISO/UDF as the output method as Webslinger has suggested. Underneath, you browse to the output directory of you choice. (harddrive) You can use the Write existing data option to burn this image, but of course the iso has to be converted to dvd files to burn to disk.
    It is a "2" step method, but will give you the image on your harddrive you desire. (not sure why you want to keep the iso?)

    there is an option to delete data after burning that is always selected unless you change it. it is on the last page before you start the burning. i think this is what you are looking for.

    You can't. Clonedvd2 remasters video files. It doesn't create ISOs unless you're specifying "iso" as an output method. As bmfcamaro stated, you can find the files Clonedvd2 processed to your hard drive before burning--but those won't be isos.

    If you just want to rip once and keep that rip to produce more backups, then choose not to delete the data after burning.

    I think the OP believes that an iso, is what is written to a dvd when it is burnt.

    That would be unfortunate.

    Ah posters, that is not what the Op thinks at all, he is at least smart enough to look at the files compiled on the backup copy created to see that they contain the necessary ifo, bup, and vob files in the video directory to allow playback on a DVD player.

    To others that have wondered why I want to keep the ISo file, it is because I have experienced burned copies of supposedly sucessful backups that have playback problems, due entirely I am sure to bad media. For me, becasue I have access to huge hard drive storage, it is just plain easier to retain the ISO for later reburns.
    comments and psots like those above in response to my question are one reason many people don't participate in this type of forum.

    I don't believe sockeye was being condescending. I got the feeling sockeye felt I was approaching the problem from the wrong angle. One of the biggest problems with communicating over ubbs is trying to understand the intent of what people write. I honestly don't think sockeye was trying to insult you (and neither was I, for that matter).


    I'd like to remind you of the forum rules:

    Please do not insult other Slysoft forum users, especially those that may be just trying to help you. :policeman:

    Possibly because typing "OP" is faster than typing your username, I guess--and maybe because, at the time of the reply, you weren't on the boards . . .

    Again, I think sockeye was telling me that maybe I was approaching the problem from the wrong angle. And I thought, "Gee, that would suck considering I already tried to answer the question as best I could." That's why I typed, "That would be unfortunate."

    I wasn't trying to insult you in any way. I'm trying to help as many people as I can (within reason) on these boards.

    By the way, it's impossible to tell how much knowledge each individual has who posts. In general, I don't get insulted if strangers tell me things I already know (because they don't know me, it would be impossible for them to determine what I know already). :)
