Hi everyone. My new AnyDVD and Clone DVD 2 programs (had them 2 weeks) were working like a charm until about 5 days ago. Before that I copied many movies without any problem. Typically, I use the middle button (CloneDVD), have the default settings on AnyDVD. I’m running Windows XP. My DVD burner is Pioneer, the one that came with my Sony laptop. Since last week all the movies I have tried to copy have come out blank.
The “creating DVD files” process and the “Writing” process appear to be happening normally. The program signals me when the files are created and then again when the writing process is complete. It always says that the writing process was successful, but the DVD apparently has nothing on it. I have tried to play these recordables in both the computer player and on a freestanding player that I have watched other recordables on. Both players act like there isn’t even a DVD in the tray. I’m new even for a newbie, so I’m looking for some suggestions just on how to investigate this problem. I figure that it probably can be one of many different problems or maybe a combination of problems. But I’m also hoping that this sudden breakdown of the copying process sounds familiar to somebody. Anyway, all suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks.
