    I'm pretty new to this.
    Trying to copy an original DVD and I get this error. I'm using DVD-R media. Are there original DVDs that cannot be compressed down to copy??

    Did you select "dvd-5" in Clonedvd2's quality bar?

    No, I used DVD +/- R, is that where I went wrong?

    Is burning double layer with Verbatim +R DL a better quality than using single layer??.................probably a stupid question, just want to make sure I'm on the right track.

    Thanks again!

    There's no compression at all when you use a double layer disc. So, yes, the picture quality will be better.

    I am not fond of compression. I will either split video across two single layer discs using Clonedvd2--or use Verbatim +R DL media with Clonecd.

    There is an obvious cost savings in not having to buy Verbatim+R DL media.

    Here is my preferred method of backing up movies:


    That said, most people use cheaper single layer blanks and compress.

    if....I don't care where the layer break is... is it OK to use Clone DVD (without CloneCD) with Verbatim +R DL media. My understanding is that CloneDVD will put the layer break at the "nearest chapter break"...and that is OK with me...so, will I be OK using Clone DVD on +R DL's without Clone CD?
    ....BTW, I usually split those longies over 2 discs...but I just came into a fortune, and now can afford those new 10X Verbatim +R DL's...

    The 2.4x Verbatim +R DLs are usually advertised up to 8x, and I haven't had any problems writing to them at 10x either. :clap:

    Thanks, Webslinger!

    Appreciate the Tip!....however, my NEC ND RW 3520A
    will only burn at "4X on DL media"...so I just waste $$ buying 10X DL media, don't I?....but "4X" seems be a "safe" burn speed for DL's anyway.

    Generally, 4x works very well with the Verbatim +R DLs.

    I have a big stash of Verb 2.4X DL and use CloneCD for the most part.

    A couple of times, when I forgot to downstep the CloneCD burn speed setting from the 8X setting I had last used for my Verb SL disks down to 2.4X, the burn speed progressed at about a 2.4X regardless of the higher speed setting.

    So is CloneDVD capable of burning at overspeed but CloneCD does not? Just curious, will probably continue to keep burn speed set at 2.4X.

    I am under the impression both programs follow the information given by the firmware in the burner for the specific blank media you're using, but I could be mistaken.
