I don’t believe it’s media related, because just playing the ripped files from using either AnyDVD or CloneDVD, on the hard drive also has the same issue. I’ve tried burning with Philips, Lite-on dvd burners.
I’ve used various media ranging from Verbatim, Ricoh, Imation. Even though the burners can burn faster, I drop the speed down to 4X.
The source can play just fine.
As I mentioned in my original post, maybe I wasn’t clear enough. Looking at the ripped files from AnyDVD or CloneDVD on the Hard drive as well as the result DVD burned from within CloneDVD show the same file size differences.
Comparing the ripped files against the source, there are several file size differences, beginning with VTS_04,VTS_05,VTS_06, etc. The biggest difference appears that the ripped files stop with VTS_16, while the source DVD goes up to VTS_17. Also strange is
that there are 3 entries for VTS_17_0.IFO.
Also, as I mentioned previously, when ripping & also Burning the source DVD via CloneDVd, When using Clonedvd, I’m selecting the Clone DVD option. When Looking at the next screen 'Title Configuration",DVD-5 is selected, while quality is 100%. When click Go to begin, it shows the process starts, but also says Target size sufficient, transcoder disabled.
That seems a little suspect, as it appears that no transcoding is needed. The source DVD is 12 GB, while the ripped & burned contents is 4.19GB
