    After a year of burning DVD"s I've finally come accross this title that refuses to copy Perfect! The entire movie is full of small blocks! The previews, trailers, etc. are crystal clear!My burner is fine as it copied 2other titles after trying this movie twice! Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    Why should i have to download another program(Shrink) to view this movie? it's obviously a Any Dvd glitch, and should be fixed. As i posted,in my original post: all burns before and after this movie were fine.
    Thanks

    It has absolutely nothing to do with Anydvd.

    It's an issue with Clonedvd--and only when you include the previews,extras,etc. A main movie only backup will work.

    If you'd like to know what a Slysoft developer thinks, visit

    And by the way, Clonedvd is developed by Elaborate Bytes and not Slysoft.
    If you have a complaint about this Clonedvd issue, please contact Elaborate Bytes: http://www.elby.ch/products/clone_dvd/contact.html

    Sorry about the correct program that is in error(Since i use Clone DVD along with ANY DVD i forget that they are 2 seperate programs. The crux of my complaint was that i have never had a copy fail before, and i always copy everything! trailers, previews ,etc., I have never paid attention to the quality% before( you list this movie@45%)as all of my previous copies have been perfect! Am not stupid as you implied,but i guess have been too trustworthy until now!

    I have no idea what the quality percentage is for a full disk backup for this film, and I didn't write that.

    The problem is the worse the quality bar is, the worse the picture quality will be.

    He's not calling you stupid, specifically. I believe he is commenting on the practice of producing backups where the quality is very low. James develops Anydvd.

    The problem as James describes it, is that the extras, menus, previews . . . something is confusing Clonedvd's bitrate controller.
    This is not an Anydvd issue. This is a transcoder (Clonedvd) issue. This issue may affect other video compression programs, not just Clonedvd.

    This issue applies to full disc backups (with ads, extras, menus, previews, everything)--and not just a simple main movie backup. The problem is a single layer full disc backup won't come close to 4.7 GB (will likely be 4 gigs or less).
