[QUOTE=mjmagicjack;2164988]Im going to assume you want to CLONE a D9 DVD (DL) with DVDFab. The way i do it is first of all in settings i change a few settings and they are PathPlayer is set to ALWAYS enabled. The other two settings are under WRITE and i change DVD-5 Media to 4472 GB and i change DVD-9 to 8152 GB for ( DVD +R DL) and save those settings. I also Uncheck copy DVD video data only and Uncheck Copy original IFO Files. I clone all meaning DL and SL. I been doing it this way for moons. After DVD is in burner PathPlayer will scan it and DVDFab should be already set to CLONE. Once it’s done scanning you click on SOURCE and tell it to put your ISO to the dir on your HDD. After the ISO is made you put DVDFab in " WRITE DATA" The source will be the ini file which hold the DVD’s layer break info if it’s a DL DVD. If it’s a SL DVD it will still have a ini file but of course no layer break info inside of it. The target is your burner. Thats it.
P.S. Sometimes you will run across a DVD that reads like 40 GB in windows. Copy protection and fake files etc do that but DVDFab takes care of it all and even your CLONE will read 40 GB also but it really is’nt. DVDFab took care of that long ago. Like all software you will find one program can’t copy a certain movie and another can but when it comes to DVDFab it will burn it as the author is really on top of his programming very fast. Thats the way i do it as i don’t use any other write modes but CLONE to be as original as possible. Main movie, Full Movie and all the other modes i have but they are of no use to me. Good luck. Thats my method. As far as your burn error what is your error code and if you don’t know look in your DVDFab log file and to save you from a headache if your not using Verbatim DL +R media in my opinion your just wasting your time and 99% of this site would tell you the same.

Thanks for your detail explanation. I follow most of your settings, except I feel safer with the DVDFab recommend 4300 and 8000 settings. Any compression that might be applied because of this would not even be noticeable.
Anyway, that burn error was the first I ever got with DVDFab since I started using it to archive my DVD collection five months ago.
I always use Verbatim DVD+R DL (MIS) for Dual Layer. For single layer, I never had any problems whether I use Panasonic, Fuji, or Verbatim.
Based on my successful burning of a DVD+RW today from a cloned Image File, I just have to assume that the burn error I got the other day was due to the size of the image file being larger than the 8000mb I set for DVD-9. That is because no compression is applied in Write Data mode and the tutorial specifically states that “Your files/image must be able to fit on the blank media you have selected and be ready for burning”. An 8200+ file would not fit on a DVD-9 if I set its maximum size to 8000.
Anyway, I am not going to lose any sleep over this. While it would be nice to be able to store the cloned image file on my hard drive, using Clone in one operation has always worked.
