altering bit rates when duplicating dvd's

    Is there any one who can suggest the best software that allows you to adjust the bit rate when copying dvd's as it has been proven to my satisfaction that doing this enables most domestic dvd players to read copied discs (the reason being that most domestic dvd players don't read copied dvd's that are recorded at a high bit rate of approx 8000 bits/sec or high quality, but will read at good quality or less than 6000 bits/sec with no problem)
    any suggestions would be appreciated

    Probably a lot easier to buy yourself a decent DVD player. Have had no problems playing backed up copies on a standalone player over many hundreds of burns. Just use decent quality media.

    thankyou for your useful comment, but perhaps you could explain why copied dvd's will work ok in a cheap dvd player but refuse to be seen in either panasonic or sony dvd players this does no appear to be a dvd player quality problem, but more a read/write/software problem any further assistance would be appreciated

    datasafe dual layer,and many others, perhaps you can recommend a better quality disc,

    Ritek appears to be the preferred media for most members on this forum though Verbatim are also considered good quality.

    For some reason el cheapo players often tend to be less finicky with media compared with some better known models.

    Also need to make sure that you do not put labels on your DVD's or try to burn too fast - Max burning speed of 4X recommended.
