    hello I have a question about dvdxcopy express. I rented some twilight zone dvds, which on each dvd contains at least 3 episodes. when I copy a dvd with xcopy express, it only copies the first episode. Is there anyway I can get around this to copy the whole dvd, the all of the episodes??

    XCopy doesn't do episodes ... use DVD Shrink.

    Hi mrjuan, I never tried a dvd with episodes back when I used X Copy Express so I don't know if this helps or not. The first versions of Express copied movie only. If you have one of these versions I don't think anything will help. The newer versions starting with I think version 3.0 had the option to copy movie only or full disc. These newer versions in full disc mode may do a dvd with episodes. But I'm not really sure.

    You can't auto burn with Roxio, but I'm sure you can burn a video_ts file with it. So make sure that is what you create. I'm not familiar with Roxio.

    The reason I said DVD Decrypter is because Decrypter will burn ISO's and is free.

    thank you, i'm still now really sure what i'm doing, but i'll figure it out. right now it's encoding the movie to my hard drive. i'm not sure if i'll be able to burn it to a dvd after that or not.

    Best practice is not to multi task when backing up dvds. Encoding uses alot of your processor.

    Here is a Shrink & Decrypter guide written by ScubaPete:

    Believe it or not ... it helps if you actually read around and maybe search some topics.
