- Change the booktype to dvd-rom before burning. Use http://www.cdspeed2000.com/ if you have to--but make sure
the booktype is changed to dvd-rom first. Clonecd won't do this for you.
Can you point me to an article or instructions how to do this?
- Burn these discs at 4x. What speed are you burning at? You might want to reduce your burn speed, if possible.
Using CloneCD where can I change the burning speed?
- Do not burn on the fly.
the copy process appears to hang up at the layer break.
Clonecd hangs while burning?
Playback on your computer hangs? Have you tried playing the discs in your burner?
The orignals play in the burner
Playback on a standalone dvd player hangs?
What hangs exactly?
The burn process, I'm guessing at the layer break.
Do you get an error message? If so, what is that exact error message?
It is a wrtie message I've seen in the headings of some threads.
Some burners just don't handle double layer media very well--even Verbatim (I cringe to think what will happen when they start to be made in India again, and that's going to happen very soon). I suspect if I looked at a PI/PIF graph of your burns, there's probably a large spike right at the layer break. It's possible you came across a couple of bad blanks. More than likely you just produced bad burns.
Not so. I have tried other DL discs such as Memorex that hang during the burning process at exactly the same spot.
The movies I have been having difficulty with are The Black Dahlia and Snakes on a Plane yet I can copy The Descent utilizing CloneCD without any difficulty.
In terms of software, this would imply a problem with Anydvd--rather than Clonecd since you were able to backup The Descent. But Anydvd handles those other two titles, afaik. Consequently, the problem may have to do with your burn speed--or simply coming across a couple of bad blanks. It's also possible your burner is dying.
Maybe the burner is dying. However, I can copy using CloneDVD2. Wouldn't the burner be dying for that software as well?
