    I found that the latest CloneDVD v2.9.1.5 is unable to burn Ritek DVD-R DL media on my LG GSA H10N

    I've checked the Ritek web site and my dvd burner meets all the specs to be able to burn Ritek DVD-R DL

    Media: Ritek DVD-R DL
    DVD Burner: LG GSA H10N

    The error message is "source data too large"
    I've also run the latest version of NERO INFO TOOL and it recognises the blank dual layer media correctly as 7.98gb on this drive

    I know the problem lies with CloneDVD because I can use CloneDVD to burn this Ritek DVD-R DL media on my older Pioneer DVR-108 perfectly fine.

    1. -R DL is a useless blank disc format.

    2. Ritek -r DL blank media is not consistently good (inferior quality), and you should expect problems when using inferior quality blank media

    3. Use Verbatim +R DL (preferably made in Singapore) or MAM-A 8x +R DL only

    4. Update your burner's firmware (if available)

    5. Select "dvd +/-R DL" near the quality bar in Clonedvd

    6. You may have something on your system that is interfering with Clonedvd:

    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

    Doesn't matter. Two conditions must be met:
    a) your burner's firmware must support Ritek dvd-r DL
    b) your Ritek dvd-r dl blank media must not be bad (which really is a crapshoot, because Ritek dvd-r DL is not consistently good)
