Recently ditched my old PC and bought a shiney new one complete with DVD burner (Aopen DUW1608ARR). Although the PC came with Nero as I have used CloneCD to copy audio discs for years with no problems, I decided to get CloneDVD2 (Ver: 220.127.116.11) as I assumed this would be as user friendly as it’s audio counterpart… Wrong !
I’ve been trying it out today and had no luck at all. I can copy the image file to the H/Drive perfectly but when I put in a blank DVDR nothing happens for about 5 minutes then I get an error message “Media Write Error” (WriteDVD 10 11 W2). Looking at the surface of the rejected disc it appears approx a third has been written too. The discs are Datawrite Red V3 4XDVD-R (manufacturer Infosmart01)
I tried reducing the write speed down to 2x but that didn’t work either. I have now tried the same discs using Nero and it worked fine, copied with no problems and at the correct speed for the disc ie: 4x.
Any idea what is going on here ? The whole issue of DVD buring is new to me so the simpler the explanation the better (hopefully there is one !). In the meantime it looks like its back to Nero.
Thanks very much for taking the time to read this.
