    Is it possible to copy a DVD backup copy that will play in a stand alone DVD player? If so how is it done?

    Did you by chance use 321 xcopy series to burn the original ? If so that suite of programs will not allow you to re burn a backup but you can use shrinkdvd or clonedvd .

    Try the guides section for shrink details:

    Are you saying that I can't use NERO to backup a backup that was done with xcopy platinum?

    not exactly but with shrink this program will allow you to save the files to your hard drive and its quite easy to transfer from hard drive back to disk

    I'm in the process of using SHRINK & DECRYTER right now! It was pretty simple to set up' just have to wait and see what the finished product will perform like. From what I've read I should now be able to backup from the VOB'S that were saved on my hard drive, correct? I guess decrypter was used to burn the backups to my HD & DVD.

    That's a great idea. How do I do that? How do I use the files copied to my hard drive again or do I have to delete them.

    If you have the movies converted to ISO files on your hard drive you can simply burn them X number of times (X being your choice) to DVDs using Decrypter or Nero . . or other programs. If you are still at the VTS folder stage you need to use Shrink to encode the VOBs, etc., to an ISO file . . . which you then burn to a DVD. It's always nice to check the burnt DVD to make sure it's good before deleting the ISO file - you can keep the ISO file or delete it . . . up to you.

    MAN! Dropping DVDXCOPY and switching to SHRINK & DECRYPT is the best move i've made since i started backing up. The programs are so easy to use! The process of backing up a dvd may take awhile, but it's worth it. So if anyone out there is getting frustrated with dvdxcopy platinum, just make the switch and see the difference.
