I am experience something strange with a backup. Here is my scenario. I have made a backup of "The Ten Commandments" as this is one of my all time favorites. I used AnyDVD and CloneDVD2 and everything went as normal. I closed out both programs (I generally do not keep anydvd running all time) and placed the disc from my burner to computers player and my computer does not recognize the disc. Acts as if there is a bad disc or no disc in there at all. I use branded Ridata blanks and the burning process went smooth. Thinking I have wasted another disc, and wondering what to do, I stumble around for a few minutes and decide to see if AnyDVD will show any information on the disc. I restart anydvd and low and behold my backup starts playing! Now, I am really wondering what is going on here. I mean, bad media is bad media and nothing should "make it good". Well, I decide to unload anydvd while the backup is playing, and the movie stops. I open up CloneDVD and that program does not recognize the disc, but does when anydvd is running. Does anyone know why I should NEED anydvd to play a backup once made? This is one on me.
