Using "SONY DW-U18A" and the newest version SONY AccuCORE (4.7GB) DVD-R disks From Staples and AnyDVD 184.108.40.206 and CLONEDVD2 220.127.116.11 ..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. :sad:
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 :sad:
Is the Sony DW.... dead :sad: , 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.
