Nikumba, i think your problem is that CloneCD is really outdated and doesn't support newer drives.
try to use another CD-cloning software, there are lots of them better than the latest version of CloneCD (this hurts to a CloneCD registered user and fan, like me, but is the true reallity today)
And for your second question, i can not tell what is the really best DVD movie backup program, because it depends of what user needs. but i can tell that CloneDVD is the software that most satisfy my needs, it's really simple, fast enough, and for me it has the best overall image quality. But has a little problem when burning on +R media using the Pioneer DVR-106D, it is already fixed in the next release, if you use -R media till the next update, you will have no problem.
PS: this Thunderace1k seems to have being copying+pasting the same "check my post" all over the forum in all DVD-106D related posts (no matter what problem is being discused in such posts)
