I finally am at a point where a can successfully finish the backup process with the latest versions of AnyDVD (126.96.36.199) and CloneDVD (188.8.131.52.0). Unfortunately, two out of three of my regular home DVD players can not read the disks. The other one works fine. The media appears to be supported by all my DVD players (I am using DVD+R DL, and my DVD players read DVD+R/RW). I am using Verbatin brand disks, and am having the identical problem with two different titles so far (all that I have attempted). My Sony DVD player won't read the disks, and one of my two Samsung DVD players also can not read the disks. Also, my Gateway laptop's internal DVD drive can not read the disks, but my external HP DVD840 writer can. Please help.
The only thing I can figure is that I don't have the correct options selected on ANYDVD -- I've tried so far with all options selected, and then tried it with the "remove software region code" UNselected.
Incidentally, my other resent problem burning was solved by disabling Norton Internet Security and Norton Antivirus.
