    I am successfully able to read and copy my dvd, however when it asks for me to put in a blank dvd I do so but upon the start of burning to the blank dvd I receive an error saying that it cannot write to it. I am unsure as to why this is and I've used another blank dvd in case I had a bad one but this isn't so. Anyone know of a solution to this issue.

    Also, how would I go about placing a dvd on my harddrive to back it up instead of just burning a back-up disc. Thanks

    1) a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
    b) Put the problematic original movie disc 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 "" (or something similar; see step f)
    i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like [​IMG]
    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"

    2) What blank media are you using? Specify a) brand name b)type (-R, +R, -RW, +RW, RAM, DL, etc.) c)media code, d) capacity/size, e) batch codes/serial codes (often found printed on the inner plastic hub of the blank disc), and f)country (factory information would be great as well, if possible) where the media was made (look on the physical packaging; do not rely on programs to accurately give you this information).

    If you don't know how to obtain media codes, you may find the following programs useful: and

    3) At what speed are you burning your blank media?

    Choose dvd video files as the output method instead of your burner in Clonedvd.
