    Think you linked the wrong thread Webslinger. That 1 only goes to five and is about CloneDVD not working properly

    Spliting movie recording to two dvd's

    After reading step ten, I am still having trouble spliting to two discs. Also for some reason many of the copies I make with Clone DVD2 I can only play back on my PC, not on my other two DVD players.

    Describe your problem.

    1. Update your burner's firmware (if available)
    2. Use good quality media (Memorex, Ritek, Princo, Fuji, TDK from Costco, and Maxell that are not made in Japan are not good quality media)
    If you use poor quality blank media, then you should expect problems.

    3. 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)
    4. If you're using +R, +RW, or +R DL media, change the booktype to "dvd-rom"

    5. Avoid sticker labels (they tend to cause problems)
    6. 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 6)
    and also at layer breaks when using low quality DL media (use Verbatim +R DL media, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom)
