I am using CloneDVD v. 22.214.171.124 and AnyDVD v. 126.96.36.199, both purchased versions..
My IDE drivers are the ones supplied with WinXP Pro.
When I try to do a direct copy (with one DVD drive, which is a Lite-On SOHW 1633S) it reads fine, and creates the files on the hard drive, however when I switch the disc to a blank disc, it says it is writing, then eventually comes up with 400 - 500 minutes remaining. I can reboot the computer at this time, put a new blank in the drive, open up CloneDVD again and write from files on the hard drive and it writes in about 5-6 minutes.
Why do I have to do it this way? I see others having the same problem, but I haven't seen a solution yet. Is there one?
