    Im using DVD X Copy Platinum and I backed up my dvd first i went to simple mode then i clicked start after it was finshed it gave me a AUDIO_TS & VIDEO_TS do i burn them 2 folders? and whats a good speed to burn at.

    another question... when i go to advanced mode on DVD X Copy Platinum then i click TitleSrt 1,2,3,4 ect. and lets say the file size comes out too 5.99 GB and i click use Compression.. what do that do? i know it makes the sizes smaller but do it mess up anything? as in quailty or what?

    and i was wondering do Simple mode use Compression too cuz it just sayz start and when the file is done its small. wats the difference between Simple & Advanced and which u recommend? thanks to whoever replys =)

    And how do you get rid of that backup screen when the dvd first starts..

    You shouldn't cross-post dude.

    All of your problems are related to dvd x copy. It is VERY limiting. It puts up that warning screen, and prevents u from copying the copy. Nuff sed.

    What it do iz....It trims down the movie by removing bandwidth(quality) and creates a smaller file that will fit onto yer dvdr. However, on most tv's, this loss in quality should be negligible. Not positive about dvdxcopy tho. I've only seen compression done in dvd2one and dvd shrink.

    Whatever speed your burner and yer media calls for would be a good place to start. The great thing about both these items is...they have the speed ratings right there on the package in HUGE print.

    Yup.

    Common sense should tell u that yes...if it started out at 5.99gb, but ended up much smaller, it likely compressed it.

    As far as I know, you can't. Isn't dvdxcopy wonderful?
