    Why is that when I make a backup of a movie onto a DVD-R, i can't get past copy protection? It is like burn proofed or something. What am I doing wrong??

    You're going to have to give us some more information. What software are you using? What is the error message?

    I used DVD Decrypter to get the files onto my computer, and then i used nero to burn them. I have tried dvd shrink and dvd2one and niether are working for me. The error message doesn't come up until after i have burned the dvd-r. I go to play it in my dvd player and it doesn't work, so then i put it into my dvd rom drive in my computer to see if i can play it on my computer, and it says it is copy protected, or else it says invalid lable.

    OK, sounds like you have a problem with burning.

    Couple of questions:
    (1) How big is the total size you are trying to burn? Remember that 4.7 GB is really more like 4.36 GB, or 4460 MB.
    (2) How are you burning everything? Are you putting it into a VIDEO_TS folder and burning that onto the DVD?

    Now is it VIDEO_TS or video_ts? The caps make a difference.

    Yep. Not sure why, but it does.

    Don't worry, you're not the first one to do this. :)
