I used to do all my burning to 4gig and 8 gig DVD roms with no problem. Now that I’ve upgraded to Vista, I have problem. I have made NO hardware changes, only an operating system change from Windows XP Pro to Windows Vista Ultimate.
New Operating System: Windows Vista Ultimate Retail 32 Bit (Clean install, no upgrade from XP, fully patched OS)
AnyDVD Verison: 126.96.36.199
CloneDVD Version: 188.8.131.52
Hardware: 3.2 ghz Intel system (Self built), ASROCK P4V88 Motherboard
DVD Burner: External Plextor DVDR (PX-716A) IEEE 1394 SBP2 Device (connected via Firewire 1394A)
Media: Verbatim DVD+R DL
I’m using the same media I’ve always used successfully before (Verbatim).
For dual layer media… CloneDVD seems to read the original 8.5 gb dual layer movie disk fine. When I put in the new media to be burned (Verbatim DVD+R DL), it errors out in the initial write sequence. It sees the blank media, says setting up…erasing… pauses for about 60 seconds, then displays the following error:
Tried two more DVD blanks (Verbatim DVD+R DL) to make sure it wasn’t a media problem. All failed in exactly the same place, in the same amount of time.
I also own some software called PlexTools Professional XL (Version 3.12). I tried creating DVD files (video/audio directories) with CloneDVD2 which worked fine. Then I tried burning these files with PlexTools. (Verbatim DVD+R DL media) PlexTools also errored out on the initial write sequence to DVD.
Windows shows a bunch of errors in the event log that coincide with my burning attempt times:
Log Name: System
Date: 2/13/2007 4:57:47 PM
Event ID: 51
Task Category: None
An error was detected on device \Device\CdRom1 during a paging operation.
Now that you know all this info… I put 4.7gb DVD+R media into the drive, and CloneDVD2 can reduce the size and it burns the DVD+R media JUST FINE - NO PROBLEMS.
Conclusion: It only seems to have problems with 8.5 GB DL media!
