Source Data Too Large - but DVD-5 does not fix it

Discussion in 'CloneDVD' started by Mountaineer Jim, Apr 1, 2008.

  1. Dear Sirs,

    I have just installed the latest editions of AnyDVD and CloneDVD. I had just updated on 3-2-08 and things were going perfectly. I updated yesterday and now it hangs up every time when I go to burn the new disk.

    AnyDVD seems to scan everything perfectly. Then I fire up CloneDVD and it seems to upload everything just fine into the buffer. But, when I go to burn the new disk, it gives me an error saying "This writer is not capable of writing the source data as requested. To write these DVD files please use the 'Copy DVD Titles' or 'Clone DVD' option from the start screen." I then clicked on the "Details" tab and it said "WriteDVD 14W2"

    I spent an hour on these forums at lunch break today and thought I'd figured out my problem. I read all the stickies, and I saw where about 100 guys had posted on this and Webslinger in every case said the answer was to set the Quality Level on the Clone DVD bar to DVD-5. Cool, I have the answer!

    But I came home and went to fix it and it was already set on that. :(

    I ensured that DVD-5 was selected. It was. I ran it on a movie I'd copied in the past and it bombed. I set it to Custom and made it 4600; that bombed too. I uninstalled both AnyDVD and CloneDVD and reinstalled the previous versions that had worked fine. I got the same error, with DVD-5 selected.

    Here are the scans from three movies that did the above mentioned behavior:

    I have an NEC drive that works perfectly (and worked perfectly with these two programs before I installed the latest versions of the software) I get the email notifications when the newest version comes out and so just upgraded. I have no packet writing software on this computer. I am running the burner at 8x and it has worked perfectly at that speed.

    Everything was working fine until I upgraded to the latest versions. I must have inadvertantly changed some setting, but darn if I can figure out what it is. It's not the DVD-5.

    Can you help me please?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    1. Use Anydvd 6.4.0.6 beta: click http://sandbox.slysoft.com/beta/SetupAnyDVD6406.exe

    You may need to reboot after installing if prompted to do so.

    2. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "default". Click "ok".


    3. Use Clonedvd 2.9.1.6 beta: click http://sandbox.slysoft.com/beta/SetupCloneDVD2916.exe

    4. Follow the steps from this link in order: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=476 (follow them step by step)

    If you're using +R DL blank discs, I recommend using Clonecd: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=327


    5. If you still have problems, then . . .

    A)
    a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original movie dvd in your burner. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
    c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
    d) Select "Create Logfile"
    e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
    f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
    g) Go to your My Documents folder
    h) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG] (in other words, look for the paperclip after clicking "quote" or when creating a new thread)
    j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
    k) A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
    l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
    m) click "upload"
    n) Close the window. When you submit reply, or submit a new thread, the .zip file will be attached automatically for us to take a look at


    B) State the full a)error message(s) you encountered (click "details"), b)tell us what program(s) you were using when you received the error message(s), and c) describe in detail what you were doing when you received the error message(s). What problem are you having exactly?

    What links don't work? The ones for old, now defunct, versions of AnyDVD and CloneDVD?

    Considering that you resurrected a nearly 5 year old thread I'm not one whit surprised links to old versions of software are not working.

    There are working links for newer versions of AnyDVD and CloneDVD on the main Slysoft site, or if you want better betas there are links in the AnyDVD/AnyDVD(HD) and CloneDVD fora. Just check the top threads in any of those fora.
