2 problems: Computer turns off when using clone dvd & blank media not recognized

I have been using Anydvd, and Clonedvd for YEARS. All of a sudden, everytime I put a disc in clone dvd, halfway through the process, my computer shuts down???

I got it to go through ONCE…then I put a DVD + R, same brand that i have used many times in the past and it won’t recognize it. I updated by firmware and have the latest one. I have a compaq presario R3000 notebook, and the DVD drive is a Toshiba SD-R6252.


Sounds like this might be a heat issue or the dvd drive is bad.

I was wondering Deekie if you had been able to find the answer to your problem. A friend of mine has the same problem, Clonedvd worked fine for a couple of years but now turns the computer off halfway through. A computer repairer said it was the software causing the problem, but I would have thought it must have been something to do with the computer, as the dvd has been tested and is fine.
They have had the computer wiped clean, and re-installed everything but its still happening.
