Sorry that I have not replied sooner, however I wanted to see what Clone DVD2 was doing earlier and per usual, it had taken a bite for the dust.
What actually happens is it works like last night and no changes and then I try tonight again to do the following and I will do this in step form to keep it brief.
Although I should advise, that both Any DVD and Clone DVD2 are registered and I checked that out in the "about" portion of both proggys, just in case anything went awry there. But all is OK and they are registered and paid for by me.
This is what happens when the proggy does not work, like tonight...unlike last night; though it will work after I do a One Button Registry Scan and Fix that "Path" error that I indicated in the earlier post and One Button in my Norton Professional Systemworks Premier does its repair job!!!
This is what I do when I write a dvd and create a backup and run into problems.
1. Select Copy DVD titles
2. Use the drop down menu in the next window and show my External Burner that is
3. Then I proceed throught the steps of the program, of course with my Any DVD enabled and my source Disc in Drive "F" , my external drive.
4. Then i get the error F:/VIDEO_TS
F:/VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO unable to open file
And as well when in Title Configuration, and do the drop down menu.....where the "Quality" that normally shows the colours of green, yellow and red to indicate the %; "the area is all "greyed out". The preview of the source disc shows but "no" quality % value to observe.
And when I click on Next, I get the "OH NO!!!" sound and see the error:
"Creation of DVD files was not successful "
C:\Program Files\Elaborate Bytes\Clone DVD2\eraser\PAL\VIDEO\ _TS|TSWTS_O\ _OIFO unable to open file
I have uninstalled, I have a copy of my key. and then reinstalled and I have also tried an install over top as was advised in another forum and none of these have resolved the problem.
Prior to doing this post I did a Norton Systemworks "One Button Check" and there Indeed was that past Path Error that I alluded to in my earlier post and I let the program Fix It and I then did a backup via Clone DVD2?????? and NO...."oh no" this time!! (I can't figure it out)
I have not had a chance yet to get to the Registry items described earlier in the last post but will do as soon as I can.
I thought that it was important to detail the circumstances when the proggy failed.
The notebook is clean from malware, viruses as our office in house Techie is responsible for all 14 of them.
The proggy worked at first and then after I bought it, i was fraught with this disaster.
That is why I uninstalled it and used my key as I thought something went wrong in the registration and yet both it and Any DVD show themselves as registered. Any DVD was purchased first and it works fine.
Thankyou for the interest and I hope that this helps in defining the exact nature of my problem.
I simply detest having to do a One Button Check each time I plan on using the program and don't believe that I should have to.
I look forward to comments and I will get to the registry checks as soon as I can.
Respectful Regards and Cheers! and HELP please
