WB DVDs won't copy

I’m guessing this is because of ANYDVD - I’m not sure. I’ve tried repeatedly to copy KISS KISS BANG BANG with no luck. This problem happens with Warner Bros movies the most (I’m also having this problem with The Matrix). I don’t receive any error message when I’m copying the DVD. But when I put it in my DVD Player, it tells me that the disk is no good. I HAVE had luck with a few DVDs but not ones from Warner Bros. This one (KISS KISS BANG BANG) seems impossible to copy! Any help is much appreciated, thank you!

I’m using CloneDVD2 latest version ( with the latest version of AnyDVD ( Also installed are Nero Deluxe and Sonic 4.5.2.

The most recent problem is with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, R-1, USA, 2006. Dual Layer Format.

The DVD Reader is an internal generic appearing CD/DVD Reader. In Device Manager, here’s the details: IDE\CDROMLITE-ON_COMBO_SOHC-5232K___________NK06____\5&8932DC6&0&0.0.0

The DVD Writer is an external Buslink DVD R/RW using Microsoft Drivers 5.1.2535.0

The Media I’m using is Verbatim DVD+R. 4.7 Gig. Made in Taiwan.

Speed wise, I’m letting CloneDVD/ANyDVD set the speed - it’s set to Auto.

Here’s the info from AnyDVD for the actual DVD:

AnyDVD does not have any provisions for selecting DVD media burning speeds. In CloneDVD there is no “Auto” burn speed selection. It appears that you are attempting to state that you have actually selected the Maximum burning speed in CloneDVD. Suggest in CloneDVD to select burning speed to 12 Speed and see if the corrects your problem. If this doesn’t correct you problem then attempt to select 8 Speed and see if corrects your problem.


I know Matrix [WS R1] had no special copy protection as I was able to back it up without issue using just DVD Shrink (no AnyDVD). “The Matrix” came out in DVD in the U.S. in September, 1999, well before RipGuard and ArCoSS started being used.

This suggests you have a defective or damaged original. Try replacing the DVD and try again.
