    The movies I burned play back good from disc in my PC DVD player but If I play then from my Playstation 2, after about 10 minutes of play I get a PS2 error message that the disc can't be read. Any suggestions?

    I want to buy this product but I need to be able to burn on demand and hopefully play them on PS2. Why won't it burn anymore? I still have 15 free trial days to go.
    HELP PLEASE :bang:

    REVISION NOTE: Why won't it burn anymore? I have the answer NOW, MY DVD writer is Not working because it won't write my CD music with Nero or other programs, so it's bad.I learned this after testing other burn programs. So Never mind.

    Frequently Asked Questions (READ BEFORE YOU POST)

    10. My backups play on my computer or standalone dvd player, but not in something else. Why?

    First, if the backup is playing in a standalone dvd player or on your computer that means Clonedvd worked.

    The most common reason why you're having this problem (if the backup doesn't work in a standalone dvd player) is due to a compatibility issue between the blank media you're using and whatever you're using to play the backup in (standalone dvd player, for example). Basically your dvd player, dvd-rom drive, etc. doesn't like the blank media you're using (or if you're using +R media, you didn't change the booktype to "dvd-rom"). You can try choosing other blank media (+r instead of -r, for example, and change the booktype to "dvd-rom")--or buy a different standalone dvd player (or a different dvd-rom drive, burner, etc.).

    If you're using dvd-r media and your standalone dvd player gives you a message similar to ""Play Prohibited, please check disc", use dvd+r media instead and change the booktype to "dvd-rom" (see "b)" below).

    a) Are you using junk blank media? If you're not using Taiyo Yuden (not valueline), Verbatim, Maxell Plus, or Maxell Broadcast Quality, then chances are the answer to this question is "yes".
    b) Click this and read FULLY (especially take a look at point 4 for more information on bitsetting/booktyping, but all points are very important)

    The same factors also apply to why the backup doesn't play in your computer (but there can be other factors including buggy or poorly installed dvd player software, bad drivers, etc.).

    It's also possible the playback device/player that can't play the disc is slowly dying.
