Hello all. I'm very new to backing up my DVD's, and fisrt off I want to say thanks for compiling so much great information into one place for the total noob user to gain some knowledge. I've read most of the guides and related posts in depth, but I'm still hung up on a few things I'm hoping you guys can help with. First off, I've backed up about 10 of my newer dvd's with little or no problem whatsoever (few coasters starting off, but I expected that to happen). A few of the titles gave others problems on this site, so I guess I gained a little undeserved confidence. I've been having some serious problems backing up Spiderman 2 and the Villiage...I've tried several methods with Decrypter, Shrink, VobBlanker, and Nero but all result in a perfectly worthless coaster. If anyone can help with either of those two titles it would be a blessing. My other issue (my main issue in a way) is verifying the content on my drive before actually burning to disk. I usually don't receive the error messages others refer to, so I'm pretty much guessing that the backup was performed sucessfully. I haven't seen anything mentioned on it, but I have to be missing something somewhere. My system specs are- P4 3.0 w/ 800 fsb 512 mb PC 3200 memory Geoforce FX5200 128 mb 250 gig Maxtor Hard Drive w/ 16mb cache Lite-On 16X drive Mostly Wal-Mart purchased movies Memorex 8x DVD+R disks Any help would be wonderful, and thanks again for sharing so much awesome information! Have a great day guys and gals.
