I’ve been using CloneDVD and AnyDVD since they first came out but I just discovered something that I had not tried before. This may have been brought up before, I just never read it.
When backing up a dual layer disc with 53% compression I found that slowing CloneDVD’s speed down to 1x makes a very acceptable copy. The color indicator is just starting in the yellow. It takes about 1 hour to complete but you can get a lot of stuff on the dvd and the copy is very good.
I had always run clonedvd flat out at maximum and made copies in 15-30 mins. The copy quality was good but I’ve always had a lot of pixalation, maybe from the media, though I use many types and brands. Slowing down to 1x reduces the pixalation almost completely with good copy quality even on 50%+ compressed titles.
Just my thoughts…
