I'm trying to back up my disks and have had nothing but problems as of late. When I was using platinum by itself I had nothing but perfect backups (way back when). Since that has gone away I have puchased ANYDVD, CloneDVD2, Nero and the rest of the whole nine yards. (Some of you may chuckle here since I know too how to get them for free but rather pay them). I have been getting nothing but choppy coasters since platinum. I have followed all the rules by disconnecting my internet connection, turing off as much as I can in the background and burning at 4x. I am using Memorex DVD-R (could be the problem but have had lots of luck until this point), which were working perfectly at the time. Here are the problems that I have been having besides the choppy coasters that I have been making lately....if I burn something with Shrink, Nero does not complete the burn and states that the process has failed.....if I try it with Clone DVD2 with anyDVD running in the background, Clone writes the files, but hangs up right before the burning process. I've been trying to figure it out without asking, but I finally have to turn to you, the afterdawn crew and its membership to help me out here..... I have more coaters as of late than backed up movies..... Am I missing something? What info do I have to give to you so you can help me ballpark this problem? Any help that I can get from the community would be more than helpful. Thank you!
