I’m trying to backup Star Wars movies to Verbatim DVD+R DL (double layer) using the current evaluation versions of AnyDVD and CloneDVD2 (9 days left). I tried copying Episodes I and IV (region 1 widescreen), using both the Copy DVD Titles and Clone DVD options, going both to DVD files and to ISO/UDF images. In all cases, when I select DVD+R DL in the CloneDVD2 drop-down list, CloneDVD2’s Quality bar goes to 100% and stays there. I thought this meant that I would be able to copy everything without requiring compression, and that it would all fit on one double layer DVD, but when CloneDVD actually tries to write to the blank DVD+R DL, it always gives a “source data too large”, error: WriteDVD 14 W2. I searched through the posts but didn’t see this situation discussed. I verified that the blank DVD was good because I wrote to it later using the Sonic RecordNow! program bundled with the laptop. Does anybody know why CloneDVD2 would report 100% in the Quality bar and then say “source data too large”? AnyDVD is version 126.96.36.199 and CloneDVD2 is version 188.8.131.52.
Any help or hints are greatly appreciated.
PS: I’m doing this on a Sony VIAO FS-500 laptop running Windows XP Home with a MATSHITA UJ-831Da double layer DVD writer set to region 1.
