    I have no problems backing up DVD's, but after I erase the information from my harddrive, I can't seem to make of copy of the backup DVD like I could with the original. I use Decrypter and Shrink.

    I've tried 3 methods:

    1. copying and pasting from the DVD while its in the drive. It begins but displays an error message when it tries to paste the audio.

    2. Decrypting like I would an original DVD. It doesn't seem to work for some reason. I'm not sure why.

    3. Opening the DVD using Shrink. Same as above, it doesn't seem to work.

    So I'm wondering how to do this. I've lost a few of my original DVD's and would like to make backups of my backups. How can this be done? All help is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

    Julian

    i just looked and saw that using nero will allow me to do it. Can someone confirm this or let me know if this is incorrect.


    Thanks,

    What error does Nero give you?

    If all else fails, just copy the VIDEO_TS folder to your hard drive in Windows Explorer and then burn it from there.
