Choose whichever disc suits what you intend to play it in

Setting a lower burning speed should help

If you want to use dual layer discs for films, check your DVD player can run dual layer discs made on a PC

If the programme has a help option, look for preferences

Check the disc speed is equal to or more than the speed which the drive is capable of writing

You don't need to use a clone programme to back up home produced discs :whistling:

aaaahhhh yes Good safe answer. Wouldnt want me doing anything illegal or against copyrights... lol
I found the opition to adjust the speed, was set to max (which I belive is like 20X) so I set it to just 8x... I hope that fixes my problems

THanks for your assistance :whistling:
