I suspect that there was just very little DNA in the size-selected DNA for those 2 - 3 libraries. Which is one reason I was considering running a PCR before size-selection.

I'm taking steps to ensure that won't be the case here, but you never know. At least now I have the benefit of experience!
Hi I am also following the ddRAD protocol from Peterson et al 2012, and I too am having trouble with PCR after size selection. Are you doing the 20uL reactions as suggested as well?
