    Is there any possible way of adding some kind of protection on a dvd that you burn so that nobody else can burn it? I know Decrypter takes it out, but can you put one on using shrink or decrypter? Thanks.

    Just wondering; are you talking about protecting a movie you backed up?

    I ask because it does not make sense to me to want to add protection to a movie copy where you had to bypass a copy protection scheme in order to back it up.

    321 Studios claimed DVD X Copy could make a back up of the movie and the program would implement a scheme that would not allow a copy to be made from a copy made with DVD X Copy. But now there is a way around it.

    I'm sure that as soon as there is a new protection scheme someone will figure out how to bypass it.

    movie_777,


    In reality it means that a copy can't be made of a DVD XCopy copy using DVD XCopy.

    (lemme see now, a copy of a copy's copy can't dance with that copy's copy other brother's copy if DVD XCopy choppy copy - AAAaaaaah -

    I hate getting stuck in that virtual space-time continuum warp thingie :-(

    Anyway you can use almost anything to copy a DVD Xcopy copy, you just can’t use DVD Xcopy - Yea ! That’s it !
    I knew I had it in me !

    yeah dvdxcopy used to watermark its copies but not with a code, just something to tell dvdx not to copy that copy. I say used to as dvdxcopy is now no longer able to crack the css protection so its now know better than ROXIO or NERO.

    The reason I mentioned DVD X Copy was that some users claimed that when trying to back up the copy made by DVD X Copy with DVD Shrink they would get an error at 99%. So they thought the copy could not be copied.

    Yea, so many people attribute things to 321's products.

    It's because of the statements they made about their anti-pirate software. - They saturated the net about how their copies couldn't be copied. - It can't be copied by their XCopy software. -It can be copied by any other program, - how misled people become :D)

    "P"
