I am new here and to the scene, searched around the net... and think this is the best place to join.. so here I am.
Equipment: a newer Dell XPS.. over 800 gigs avail on HD
DVD burner: HP DVD Writer 1070d
Software: DVD-Cloner: V6 build 978
Now to my problem..
Past two days I have tried to burn my first two back up movies
The program seems to be working ok as it burns.. but only 1/2 the movies approx are showing up when finished. Tried 7 times already.. same issue each time.
Selected: Burn DVD9 to DVD5
Also tried a 1:1 copy with a DL disc
I am NOT clicking on two disc burn option.... but indeed single disc.
Used 3 different DVD brands, even a DL disc
What is happening is that I am getting a great copy of about an hour of the movies. Program is utilizing only about 3.75 gigs on the burn media.
I tried to be thorough in my reading on how to burn.. and think I am doing it right. Though really frustrated as to why only 1/2 the movie "seems" to be recording. The Burned discs all work... BUT only 1/2 the movie approx. They play in my 5 year old sony player hooked to the TV and on my Dell XPS system... but only 1/2.. approx.. one hour.
Any ideas, tips, hints... will be greatly appreciated!
Hope you all are staying warm!
