It would be helpful to provide any error codes and complete error narrative that you receive when experiencing your problem.
Error codes do not appear untill DVD burner is turned off, and only relate to not finding the burner anymore
You state that these problematic DVD titles fail to play on your â€œTEAC playerâ€. Please provide amplifying information on your â€œTEAC playerâ€. Exactly what is a TEAC playerâ€ ?
TEAC player is my crappy TEAC brand DVD player model DV 3150
You state â€œthe software stops respondingâ€. Please provide amplifying information on â€œthe software stops respondingâ€. Exactly what â€œsoftware stops respondingâ€ ?
The software that stops is whatever I am using, i.e. The AnyDVD rip to HDD that fixs stuff stops getting info from DVD reader and will not respond to buttons, CloneDVD2 stops getting info from DVD and fails to respond to buttons, DVDShrink either during analysing or encoding stops getting info from DVD and will not respond to buttons. This also occurs if I try to copy from the DVD with nero or ulead with AnyDVD running. Without AnyDVD nero and ulead see the protection.
You state â€œdisks burnt with cloneDVD2 are rejected by the DVD units on my TVâ€. Please provide the MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) (Example: TYG02) of the blank DVD Media you used to burn these DVDs. To obtain the MID (Manufacture ID and Media Code) (Example: TYG02) use a software utility program similar to DVD Identifier (http://dvd.identifier.cdfreaks.com) or DVDInfo (http://www.dvdinfopro.com).
The blank DVDs I use are 8X imation DVD+Rs, when copied from the CloneDVD2 copy with DVDShrink they work fine, so I do not think the media is the issue. But they are
Unique Disc Identifier : [DVD+R:CMC MAG-E01-000]
Disc & Book Type : [DVD+R] - [Not Available]
Manufacturer Name : [CMC Magnetics Corp.]
Manufacturer ID : [CMC MAG]

Blank Disc Capacity : [2,295,104 Sectors = 4.70 GB (4.38 GiB)]
Recording Speeds : [1x-2.4x , 4x , 6x-8x]
Also provide the Manufacture Name and Model Number of your â€œthe DVD units on my TVâ€.
The DVD player I was using is the TEAC DVD player model DV3150, it had issues with playing some of the copies I have made and struggled to play some of the commercial DVDs also, including the two mentioned below. It would pause during playback and jump ahead a bit, repeatedly, failing to respond to buttons during the pause.
My new machine is a Sony DVD Recorder model RDR-HX710, it does not have any issues playing any disks so far, even the ones that the TEAC struggles with, but still will not recognise the DVDClone2 burnt disks as DVDs
Also provide the Manufacture Name and Model Number and Firmware version of the External DVD Burner you are using in conjunction with your Presario LapTop Computer. To obtain the Firmware Version of you External DVD Burner use either DVD Identifier or DVD Info.
The external usb DVD burner is showing as "DVDR/RW DD1601 - [FW 15AF] - [USB]" I am unable to find a brand name, but I suspect it is samsung.
Also provide the exact complete name of the Commercial DVD Movie Title that are causing the difficulties.
Star Trek - The Collectors Edition - TNG 17 and Star Trek - The Collectors Edition - TNG 18 are the two that will not copy. Each has three episodes on it, and it is always the second episode that has the issues. 1 & 3 play fine and I am able to copy the files off the disk. It is just one .vob file pertaining to the second episode on the disk that resists, if I can just get the data of the disk I'll be all right.
The two disks that were copied by CloneDVD2 and were not recognised by either the DVD player or the DVD recorder were of Transporter 2 and Today You Die, however I have overcome this.
I hope I have supplied sufficient info this time
