    I've used all of the above except Clone. They all work well - I also like http://123copydvd.com/. It cost $ but not too much - $30 US. It's one click and almost idiot proof.

    I use DVDXCopy. I've also used DVD Decrypter and DVDShrink and have no complaints, but when it comes to splitting a movie onto 2 DVDs, there's no work involved with DVDXCopy. I never figured out how to do it with DVD Decrypter. The negatives about DVDXCopy is that it puts a welcome screen saying it's a backup, and the copy is not decrypted. In other words, if you wanted to make a second copy, you can't using the first copy as a source. But you can use Decrypter or DVD Shrink to copy the DVDXCopy copy.

    I use Intervideo DVD copy to split a DVD9 into two DVD-R's and it doesn't put any weird screens saying it's a backup. The stupid thing is that that second half of the chapters(15-30) on the second DVD always start from 15 even if I select 20. Has this ever happened to anyone even if they don't use this program?

    I give Shrink my vote for the rip/compress but when it comes to burning I'm an ardent fan of CopyToDVD. It's solid as a rock and has some handy features you don't get with anything else. I use nothing else since I installed it :)

    If your going to buy ... I say AnyDVD w/ CloneDVD2. But for the savings nothing beats DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter.

    Ripping doesn't matter and I don't burn faster than 4x.

    Hi n0un with reference to your questions about what sort of media, there are many who would say that DVD+ is the better standard. I have not had a problem with DVD- media. Make sure your writer supports whatever you use.
    I used to use Princo blanks initially, however; I realised that I had too many problems with movies freezing. Ever since I started using Ritec, there have been no problems whatsoever. I have also used TDK without any problems so far.

    nOun,
    Its a matter of personal preference. I use DVD- but others swear by DVD+. Use what ever format you like as long as it is compatable with your burner.
    Goodluck,
    HW.

    Best way to backup DVD'S is rip with DVD Decrypter and compress to 4.7 gig with DVD2one (full disk) then burn with Nero

    I would totally recommend DVD Shrink. It does it all, compress and burn all in one program.

    Media wise, its like someone said above, its your own personal preferance, I use mostly -R and have not had a single problem yet.

    One word of advice...these forums are awsome, the members here are really helpfull and polite. Read alot of the posts and trust me you will learn alot, also don't be afraid to ask a question. Better to find out an answer for sure than to go and make coasters.

    Dvd Decrypter (good userability, and lots of features)
    Dvd2one (never used anything else, fast and flawless)
    Recordnow Deluxe Suite 7.2 (absolutely flawless, inc +R DL media)

    Money is well spent with Dvd2one and Recordnow.

    If it does the job I want, then I pay for it............keeps the programmers producing quality products, with minimal bug fixes.
    The authors of Dvd2one and Recordnow know what they are doing.............................

    In fact it is so easy with them, I am actually get bored doing them now..................................

    Choice is yours really, trial some and see which work, and give you the best results................

    Obviously the free ones - are tempting...............
