I wouldn’t necessarily classify this as a bug, but here goes -
I’m backing up LOTR: Return of the King onto two DVD-5s using AnyDVD 22.214.171.124 and CloneDVD2 126.96.36.199. I’m preserving menus on both discs and using the chapter cut feature to select the chapters that will fit on each disc. For informational purposes, there is only one title on this DVD, the main movie. There are no extras.
On the first disc I set AnyDVD to “Jump to Title Menu”. This works fine, no problems with disc 1. However, to make disc two, here is the procedure I use (PS - I use the same drive to read and burn, BenQ 1655) -
- Disc 1 finishes burning and ejects
- With tray open, I change AnyDVD to “Jump to Main Title”, I want the second disc to start playing the movie, no the menu (this has worked for me on single disc burns)
- Hit OK, and re-insert the source DVD
- Hit the back button in CloneDVD2 several times to get back to the title select screen, invert my selection, preserve menus again, and burn as usual (this is all exactly as outlined in CloneDVD2’s help file, and as posted elsewhere in this forum)
Problem is that on this disc 2, it still jumps to the main menu. The movie does not start to play automatically. I tried this procedure twice with another LOTR movie, same results.
Lastly, I tried closing everything, starting AnyDVD with the “Jump to Main Title” option, starting CloneDVD2, inserting the source DVD, and burning disc 2 again. I made all the same chapter selections, preserve menus, etc. This time the disc plays the movie upon starting, and skips the menu, as it should.
So I don’t really classify this as a bug, but it seems switching the “Jump to Main Menu” setting with “Jump to Main Title” only works if you restart CloneDVD2 in between burns.
This may be an issue if you are burning two movies back to back where you want to start at the menu on the first, and the movie on the second. I’ve not tried this scenario, but I would assume similar results.
