    I am using DVD Cloner III and 1Click DVD Pro with DVD43 to copy DVD's.

    I am having a great deal of trouble copying Disney produced DVD's. The DVD simply shuts off DVD Cloner III and when I use 1 Click DVD, it says it is encrypted.

    Does anyone have a method for copying Disney DVD's that works?

    Hi dmerrick
    There are several ways/programs to back up Disney movies.
    DVD43 has been updated to 3.9.0. So if you not using that version update it - may help with your programs & Disney movies.
    http://www.dvd43.com/

    I don't use DVD43 anymore - I use AnyDVD. Similar to DVD43 but not free (has a 21 day free trial - http://slysoft.com). Updated frequently and handles all the new like copy protections like the ones on Disney movies. Much better imho.
    But use one or the other - they can conflict.
    AnyDVD works best w/ CloneDVD (also by slysoft and has a free 21 day trial). Other programs it works well with would be DVD Shrink and Nero Recode.

    Another way would be to rip to your hard drive w/ DVD Fab Decrypter (free) then open those files in Cloner or 1 click. Or again Shrink and Recode. But do not have DVD43 running - can cause conflicts.
    http://www.dvdidle.com/free.htm

    Then there's the new program free Ripit4me. Here's a guide w/ links:
    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/360110

    Here's another guide w/ links (mainly free programs too) on the dvdfab decrypter/vobblanker/shrink/ method.
    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/334154

    So there are a number of combinations that can be used to do Disney movies.

    My only suggestion,
    Listen to Binkie,
    'nuff said.
    Seriously, AnyDVD and CloneDVD are the one two punch you need to crack anything out there, real easy, no hassle 100% reliable. Ever wonder why the most popular programs out there don't have their own forum threads? It is because they rarely have problems! It is that easy.

    I don't know what combination dmerrick used but I just copied Disney's Eight Below with the DVDFab Decrypter, VOB Blanker, DVD Shrink combination and had no problems with it whatsoever.

    I used Ripit4me w/DVD Decrypter + Fix VTS + DVD Shrink (all free) and then used Copy to DVD or Cloner III and it has worked great. Perfect copies - no skip or slur.

    I am back again with another question on the same issue. While the series of programs solves the problem of getting a good copy of the DVD, it takes well over 2 hours to build one copy. It takes about an hour+ to burn it to my hard drive and then and hour+ to burn it to the DVD. I am doing something wrong or stupid that is taking more time then necessary.

    The copies are excellent and I seem to be able to copying anything which is a big plus but the time seems enormous?

    @dmerrick
    May be a bit excessive depending on your pc's spec.
    Another thing to check is that all your drives are in DMA mode not the slow transfer mode PIO. Here's a link:
    http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/260038

    Keep as much memory free as possible - no multi tasking and shut down any unnecessary processes.

    If you haven't run a disc cleanup or system defrag recently - do that too.

    You can also post back your pc specs and burn speed and we can take a quess on how long it should take.

    edit: spelling

    I tried your suggestions to be sure that both burners were in the right mode. They were. I also moved a number of programs from my internal hard drive to my external hard drive. My internal drive is 30G with 53%free. My external drive is 160g with 80% free.

    I have burned a number of disks lately and the quality is good but the time is restrictive. I have gone to having the dvd files put on my H drive (external) and only going through the whole process once and then using copy to DVD to make my additional copies. I only copy 2 or 3 copies for family but this can be a 6 hour process to get 3 discs.

    Any suggestions on how to speed up the process.

    I think I may have found the big part of the problem. I have a 30G hard drive that was 2/3 full so I was saving the moving files to my external 140G hard drive, thinking it would be better. It wasn't. I cleaned up my internal drive and transfered a lot of "stuff" to the external drive. My last burn, I did all on my internal drive and it seemed to be much faster. Have you had any experiences like this where location on an external drive actually slowed down the DVD copy process. I did Vendetta a couple of days ago which was double layered (used the external drive) and it took 7 hours to copy.
    UNBELIEVAVLBLE! But it was a clean copy. Any thoughts about doing the burn using just the internal hard drive versus an external hard drive??

    How is your external hard drive connected? Using a 2.0 USB hub?
    7 hours is way to long - external hard drive or not. Sounds like you're connecting to 1.1 USB hub.
