    can someone please help me?...I'm using NeroVision express 2 to burn movies i've downloaded to my DVD-R disk, but when i burn them it takes hours and when i play the movies on my PC and DVD the pictures all jerky and the sounds delayed.
    So i downloaded CdBurner XP Pro 3 to see if i had better luck and i did, well kind of, i burns movies in a couple of minutes but when i try to play the disk in my DVD player it either says "No Disk" or "Unknown Disk" i've tried it on other players and it still wont work, but when i try in on my computer it plays ok, so far i've wasted 10 disks trying to get this to work. Does anyone have any ideas whats happining?

    ? I have DVD XCopy Platinum and couldn't copy Little Black Book, said 'bad sector' so looking here I found I needed to download something to fix the problem. I downloaded anydvd. and now could copy the DVD using X copy. It copied & when I put the blank in it wouldnt do anything. I couldn't get it to burn, it looked like it should as usual but wouldnt move. I started over and copied the DVD again and when it was done copying I again put in a blank disk & as I clicked Start it now said bad sectors 2/0 and I had to close it. This took about 1 hr to copy the original, unusually slow. How do I get this to work. Download another program, quit using DVD X Copy platinum? 8x burner, 768mb Ram, HD 20+ gig free, 1.73GThz, Video G Force 68mb

    AnyDVD was running as b/4 I couldn't hardly get started B/4 it gave me the error message. Now do I need to download dvdecrepter & dvdshrink, 2 programs? How or where do I get the instructions to copy, burn etc with these programs or is it very simple. Thanks for the help.

    uzmeplz,

    Before you get confused try " SCUBAPETES GUIDE "
    Make sure you read the entire guide and even print it out if needed.

    This also has the links to all the programs you will need. Good Luck


    a ScubaPete story guide to custom edit & backup your favorite DVD

    Well Ok then, let’s just sit down and get comfy in front of the Big screen TV cause in just a minute or so the “Uncle ScubaPete Show” will be coming on the air –
    - CLICK –
    ”Brought to you this evening by AfterDawn, the “Fat chewing” champion’s location of choice - and under threats by a crazed spear waving maniac, we are forced to present Mr. Brain-Dead, direct from his extend stay at the Happy Hills Institute of the Mentally Disabled and Disturbed Souls, and here he’ll be until it’s been discovered that he’s escaped yet again from that fine facility - and here he is, live and unfortunately still disturbed, it’s Uncle ScubaPete - - - - “

    Ooohhh Boy, Ooohhh Boy, am I excited ! I couldn't wait to see you !

    And what’s so great it could get Old ScubaPete (the original couch potato) excited ?

    FREE STUFF that’s what, the new FREE DVD Shrink version 3.2 AND DVD Decrypter !
    We now we can go from start to finish with just 2 programs (checkbook not necessary) and they are DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter -

    Come on and get your FREE DVD Shrink, right here ~ ~>
    http://www.dvdshrink.org/

    Now, over here in isle 5, get your FREE DVD Decrypter here ~ ~>
    http://www.dvddecrypter.com/

    "How good is it ?" you ask ?It's so good that you might want to
    PRINT IT OUT NOW ! (Easier to follow, don't you know ? :)

    NOW, IS EVERYBODY READY ???

    GOOD -

    First, you should create a folder for your DVD backup before hand. This is the place on your HD where DVD Shrink will work on your movie files and DVD Decrypter can pick them up there to burn'em to disc. Try to put it someplace where you won't forget it - i.e. C:\All DVD work\ Sleeping Beauty Kills Bill, needs Anger Management

    Now open up DVD Decrypter - and under "Mode", select "ISO" then "Write" - under "Source" you may leave that blank as DVD Decrypter will find the location that DVD Shrink put your ISO image in all by itself. Select your "Destination" as your Burner - and make sure that the box that says "Verify" is un-ticked (This last one will cut down on false DVD Decrypter errors). Do that now. OK, feel free to close DVD Decrypter now because when DVD Shrink is finished it will open DVD Decrypter by itself.

    Let’s go get one of your favorite DVD’s and make a copy of it so should something unforeseen happen, like a waterspout hit the Mojave Desert and claim the original you’ll have a backup of it.

    Now you can place your original DVD in your DVD-ROM drive and a DVD blank in your burner's drive (If you have two drives). If you only have the one drive, put your original in that drive now. When the time comes for you to put in your blank in either the drive door will open OR a message will appear. As for your DVD media, PLEASE USE; TDK, Ritek G04, "Branded" RiData, Verbatim "DataLife", Verbatim DataLife "Plus", Phillips, Sony , media boasting "Advanced Metal AZO", Taiyo Yuden's and generally, almost any discs manufactured by Mitsubishi are excellent bets. Other media could cause unnecessary errors. Only the very best media should be used for DVD Video backups. Remember that RW discs will probably not play in older standalone players. But I suggest that you use your RW now until you get comfortable with the backup process. That way we won't be creating any "Coasters" during our trial period :) Now is defiantly not the time to put your, "Look how much money I saved on these." cheap stuff in.. Using quality media plays a major role in successful DVD burning. Certain "Name Brands" should not be trusted. If you're not sure, ask here before you buy.

    Now, into DVD Shrink we go, let's "click" "Edit", then "click" "Preferences" on this page we're going to select "DVD Target Size" as "Custom" and set the size between "4300MB" to "4360". - We do this to make sure that we don't burn to the very edge of the disc. When using poorer quality disc we may have to go lower still as the dye toward the edge many times is uneven or absent. Then, under the "File I/O" tab "UN-tick" "Enable burning with Nero" then "click" "OK". Let's do that now !

    Now let's burn a DVD, OK ? Kweel ! Alright then, let's open DVD Shrink and "click' "Open Disk". We'll have to wait anywhere from 30-seconds to a minute for DVD Shrink to analyze (rip) your DVD. If you wish, we can edit your movie now. To trim some unnecessary items from your movie, you can "un-tick" some extra audio you don't want like the foreign audio streams, i.e. Klingon, Solarian Cluster Mush OR Eastern Himalayan Yak language selections or the Director's comments (also known as Outer Mongolian). This will result in your DVD requiring less compression and therefore providing you with a better quality picture.
    If you would like, as I do, to get rid of all the extras and trailers thus compressing your movie as little as possible (giving you the very best quality picture), click "Re-author" then, under "Main Movie" select "Title 1" If there are additional choices, look at the time and select the title with the longest time as that is usually the main attraction. "Click" and drag the "Title 1" from the right-hand side of the screen to the left-hand side, under the "DVD Structure" (DVD) and release it there. Additional editing may be done by using the "Start" \ "Finish" controls to the right of the "DVD Compilation" heading on the left-hand side of the Re-author window. Bingo, Bango, you are done editing, giving you the least compression (best quality), backup possible. Now select "Backup" to get ready to finish.

    NOTE:
    If you want a "Full backup", that's everything on the original disc on your backup. We need to be sure that the "Full Disc" icon is depressed. Don't try to cheer it up and don't worry, it likes being "depressed". There's no problem in doing a "Full backup" as long as we don't see any "Red" on the size bar at the top of your window. If you should see some "Red" on the size bar, simply "Un-tick" any foreign languages, i.e. Klingon, Solarian Mush-mouth, Director's comments or DTS sound boxes until the "Red" disappears. Actually you can "Un-tick" those things anyway, it'll lessen the compression on your backup. (a good thing :) With no "Red" visible on the size bar we just let the "Automatic" (Default) settings alone.

    Since we are editing our DVD, DO NOT TOUCH THE "FULL DISC" BUTTON.
    Clicking the "Full Disc" button will erase our editing work and reset DVD Shrink to do a full backup.
    It's now time to select Backup". Take just a second and under "Target Device" go to "Select backup target " once there, select "ISO Image File and burn with DVD Decrypter". Now, under "Quality Settings", if it's SPEED you're after, "un-tick" the box which says, "Perform deep analysis" and "un-tick" the box for "Compress the video with high quality adaptive error compensation". This will give you an acceptable DVD backup.
    If it's QUALITY you're after and have some extra time to spend, "tick" Perform deep analysis before backup to improve quality" AND "tick" "Compress video with high quality adaptive error compensation." There you may adjust quality enhancements. Practicing with the settings can produce even better end products. For a no-frills DVD's like "There's something about Mary" I like Extra Smooth BUT for DVD's with a lot of special effects, I use the Extra Sharp setting. That's for me, you'll have to decide what you like :) If all the boxes are "grayed out" that's OK, it means your DVD is small enough that little will be lost from the original. Good, now click "OK." Finally, where it says "Select target image file", browse till you find your created folder for your backup, C:\All DVD Work\Sleeping Beauty Kills Bill, needs Anger Management and click "Save". That's it ! Click "OK" and enjoy a peaceful cup of tea. DVD Shrink will work it's little heart out, obeying your commands and putting a copy of your work on your HD while instructing DVD Decrypter to toast your DVD to your waiting disc to a rich, golden "Done"..
    - Believe it or not, that was as hard as it ever gets -
    We'll not have to mess with our settings again :)

    I KNOW you won't go anywhere near that PC while it's working cause we don't want to mess up the burn this late in the game do we ?

    Tell me now, . . . .

    Wasn't that finer than frog hair ?

    Slicker than a slimy, slithery, Southern, three-toed Sloth ?

    Yep, ya see, . . . . I thought you'd say that - .
    Me and thee, what a team :-D)

    Thank you for choosing a ScubaPete Guide.

    (Remember, when you want a guide with a "out of sight, out of his mind" personality, shop ScubaPete :p)

    Hi tyson, It would help us to know what the error message was. Also try to check what the target size was in Shrink. It may be that it was too big to fit the dvd blank. Target size should be set to 4300.

    Tyson6773, Follow the guidelines and direction of J man above, worked perfectly the first time when DVD X Copy Platinum wouldnt get the job done after trying it several times. DVD X copy has worked perfectly up to this time, now with some movies coming up with a new protection I couldn't copy little Black Book. I followed the advice and instructuion from J man and it worked perfectly with a little hassle (self imposed ) and made a perfect copy. Now without the guidelines from Scubapetes that J man provided I probably wouldn't have gotten a successful copy.
