Hi everyone, I've been using the above-mentioned software for a few years now with no problems, till now. I'll mention what I've done so far and would appreciate any advice. My DVD burner is a Plextor PX-708 UF. I've been using Maxell blanks without a problem. About a month ago I couldn't complete a burn. The old "remove layer break" message that I received on clicking Go in CloneDVD2 stopped appearing. While that might not matter, I started to receive a message at the end of a rip, "insert recordable media". I had done so...or so I thought. So I checked the Slysoft forums and learned that I should be using a better type of disk. Fine - I went and bought some Verbatim and just for good measure a few TY's as well. Same problem, regardless of media. I can't even rip any old DVDs I own. Is my drive too old? I think it can go to 8x. Or do you have any suggestions? BTW I have not installed Imgburn, Nero, DVDFab or anything else. I'm trying to keep this as simple as possible as I'm not an expert! Thanks in advance for your advice.
