Hey if anyone can help me out with this burner that'd be great. I just seem to be having a problem making a backup copy of my DVD movies. The bundled software quits when it gets to the copyright message on the DVD. So I used Nero (5.5.10.00 -- the latest version on their website) and that seemed to work perfectly. I did "Copy DVD" and it read the DVD and stored an image on my drive. Then I put in a blank DVD+RW (could have used - also, I just chose + ) and it copied everything over and said burn pocess successful. However the movie won't play, it says file format is invalid (it says this in my computer). Then I tried it in my playstation 2, and then my Sony DVD player, and neither one could read the disc. Nero's website doesn't officially list the DRU-500A as supported, so I suppose thats the problem. Does anyone know of a way to get this working, while I wait for Nero to support my drive? Thanks so much if you guys can help me!
