    One of the features I really liked about DVDDycrypter burns was that it verified the data after burning to a DVD. Is there anyway to set up AnyDVD/CloneDVD2 to verify the data? I have finding out a month later that my copy doesn't play because of bad media.:(

    No.

    Use better media and keep it in a safe, low humidity, low light environment.

    If you really want to archive your media use MAM-A gold Archival quality media, which uses
    Phthalocyanine dye (more resistant to UV, etc.)

    i think you have just answered your own question,no???
    bad media?try a top brand of disc and see if that helps.
    what disc(s) are you currently using?
    verifying data on a disc would double(?) the time it takes to copy a disc as it would,i think,have to compare the data on the disc with the file on the hard drive.
    it also wouldn't stop errors occuring on the recordable disc in the first place.

    I would dispute that greatly. For one, Maxell Broadcast Quality is better (and for longevity nothing is going to beat a good Phthalocyanine based disc). Granted, those discs are not sold to the general public--and are pricey. Secondly, some Taiyo Yudens suffer from quality control issues. In fact, everything does.

    Taiyo Yuden sweetness! Apparently Harry Potter was involved:

    That said most Taiyo Yuden blanks are quite a bit better than the general junk you find being sold in most stores.


    All your Taiyo Yudens are going bad? Or just some from a specific batch/spindle?
    Are they just recent ones?

    What speed are you burning at? Try lowering your burn speed.
    It's possible you're producing bad burns, and over time, the discs just become less readable.
    Upgrade your firmware. Keep your discs away from sunlight (light in general), and humidity.

    No, not at all, just an occasional one but I don't always catch it until after the files are gone from my computer so I have to re-rip. It's just irritating, that's why I like the data check.

    Usually when one of them is bad, you can actually see a flaw in the dvd

    Unfortunately, that's not always the case. There was a known bonding issue with Taiyo Yuden at one point (the disc could be pulled apart easily--and in some cases, just fell apart). Supposedly that has been addressed, but maybe you just hit a few bad discs. It happens--no matter what you buy.

    Taiyo Yuden is still very very good, generally. So keep things in perspective.

    Yeah, unfortunately there is no verification process offered in Clonedvd2.
