I've tried Nero, CloneDVD2, and Intervideo DVDCopy 3 so far and they all tell me that the cd is copy protected and then I can't copy it! (duh)

So what do I do? I'm new to this DVD burning and any help would be great! Thanks in advance.

Jamie :rolleyes:

For backup purposes use DVD Decrypter (freeware) and DVD Shrink 3.2 to compress the DVD or whatever. In spite of what others may say about circumventing copy protection schemes etc, these two programmes only provide the same facilities as the latest version of Nero, the only difference is you need to be an expert to use Nero in the way these two programmes work together.

Thanks guys, Shrink works great! I've already burned off a movie and it worked perfectly.

I have a few questions tho

Under the "Quality Settings" tab just before you start decoding, it says:

__ Perform deep analysis before backup to improve quality

__ Compress Video with high quality adaptive error compensation
[I'm given the following options here:
Maximum smoothness
Smooth
Sharp (Default)
Maximum shapness]

I'm wondering what do I use here?

The latest and best for ALL the latest movies is "AnyDVD" and "CloneDVD" from Slysoft.

nope, ive tried all the programs mentioned in this thread and the only two that really work as intended are dvd shrink, and dvd decrypter, ive copied over 100 dvd's using dvd shrink and no problems! one dvd (ice age special edition) told me it couldnt copy it, use dvd decrypter first, then use dvd shrink. and it worked, so im not looking at any more programs these are the only two ill consider using in the future too. just keep getting the latest verrsions

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
