Using “SONY DW-U18A” and the newest version SONY AccuCORE (4.7GB) DVD-R disks From Staples and AnyDVD 188.8.131.52 and CLONEDVD2 184.108.40.206 …4X speed (I’ve got plenty of time).
For the last 4 DVDs (different movies) I’ve tried to copy, everything goes along swimmingly until CloneDVD2 gets to flushing buffers and writing borders. Then it seems to hang forever. Then I finally get the wonderful little tune that tells me “DONE”. When I try to test play the newly created disc I get Nada. Nothing. Zilch. A coaster.
I’ve tried copying using a “reader DVD” and then the Sony DW… to burn. (My normal method) Then tried copying and burning using only the Sony DW… switching to a blank disk when asked for…Same result
Is the Sony DW… dead , and it’s time for a new one? No problem … (looking at the LiteON/Sony 830…anyone got a better alternative, if necessary). Or, is there something evil and incideous afoot?
I did reinstall the 2.9.03 just incase something got fouled. Nothing changed.
