CloneDVD2 not recognizing DL media

Ok I have used AnyDVD as well as CloneDVD2 to rip Stranger than fiction to the harddrive but I can get CloneDVD2 to recognize that I am putting a blank Verbatim DVD+R DL disc in the drive to burn back to. I have a Plextor PX-712A drive [±R/RW/DL/SATA].

What am I doing wrong? Is there an option to format the disc 1st that I am missing?

Down by the compression meter is a drop down menu. I think you will find that it is set to “DVD5” which is for single layer media. You have to choose “DVD +/-R DL” for your DL verbs. When I use CloneDVD for burning DL backups (not often), I set the burn speed setting at the rated 2.4X speed even though there are many who claim that burning at higher speeds works ok.

Consider using Slysoft’s CloneCD for burning DL media … it maintains the original’s true layer break.


Ya I made sure and set it to the DL option. I am trying another burner on another computer to rule out my system…
