    Has anyone been able to back up this set of 4 dvds? I have tried DVDxcopy platinum, DVDecrytor and DVD Shrink without success. I can't even load the disks to my hard drive. It will read until about half way through and then it hits a snag that it can't read and the copy programs freeze.

    ajr78,

    Run all 4 discs and compress all to 4.30GB, then - Give DVBD2One a try - use it in the "Join" mode - You should be able to get them at least down to 2 DVD's and with a double spin, get them down to DVD-5 for all of them :p)

    Does it do this with all four discs at about the same point?

    Does it do it with any other titles?

    Are you getting any specific error messages?

    I was able to transfer disks 1,3, and 4 to my hard drive with DVD Shrink. I haven't had the chance to burn them to DVD disks yet.
    Disk 2 gets to the 51% point then just stops. No error message. DVD Shrink says the the original is not crypted. DVD Decrypter and DVDxCopy Platinum also stop at this point. I tried DVD Rescue to see if it detects anything, it doesn't, but also stops at this point. I don't see any physical problem with the original.

    As they say in Mexico, "Chaa, Chaa Happens" -

    Ya want to try ripping with DVD Decrypter in the "file" mode ? -
    Maybe try a different version of DVD Shrink ?

    Success!!
    Sorry for troubling everyone. As they say "Read the Guide first."
    No problem after reading how I was supposed to use DVD Shrink.
