    Try burning at 4 times anything above that is usually unreliable.Still lots of 4 times where i live, but then i live in Canada and were behind.

    guido101-
    I have been doing DVD backups only a short time and this forum has helped several times. If you look around the forum threads you will see that media is very important--Memorex media is not a good choice even if it was expensive--There are a few that I trust--Verbatim, Sony, Ritek and a couple others--check around the site here--Also, Burn speed is best kept at 4X or even 2.4 in some peoples minds--Cuts down on errors and playability--Suba Pete has a very good guide on this forum for using DVD Shrink and DVD Decyptor--both are free and also available here--software tab on top--OK--Good Luck and let us know how you made out!

    Which version of nero do you have? Is it updated.
    I have version 6 updated to 6.3 and have burnt about 10 discs at 4 times speed with no problems you might just be using outdated stuff.

    XCopy doesn't do 8x successfully. It was really meant to be burned at 4x or better yet 2.4x. Problem is most newer burners with updated firmware will burn 4x media at 8x ... so that won't help you.

    Best practice is to use 2.4x media with XCopy, or make sure your burner will really burn 4x media at 4x.

    I also have Nero and it will burn at 4X, no problem,so maybe you have an old version, But I also use DVD Decryptor (available here free) and that always burns at the speed of my disks which are 4x--Why not download and install Decryptor and try that--burns a movie in about 15 minutes.

    No worries ... any other programs other than XCopy should be discussed over here.

    Just XCopy questions over in the XCopy forum :)
