Hey, sorry if this has already been posted, I tried searching but couldn't find much. I just bought a new laptop with a DVD burner and after a little research I found a way to burn copyrighted DVD's for backup. I first tried DVD Shrink, but it was incredibly slow, stopped responding multiple times, and would never get more than 5 minutes into the re-authoring process; I have a feeling it's highest compatibility level is XP and I'm running Vista. I then tried using DVD Decrypter. I decrypted the DVD then used Nero 7's 'Recode DVD' function to recode and burn, which worked wonderfully. My current dilema is that I have a video I would like to burn to a DVD, but it's on my hard drive in .avi format. First, I tried to just burn with Nero, but it was copyrighted. Then, I tried DVD Decrypter but soon found that it only decrypts from the DVD drive and not from the hard drive. I tried using CloneDVD2, but it couldn't find the files. In short, I'm looking for a program with the same function as DVD Decrypter but that can source from the hard drive. Also, my video is in .avi format, should I convert it to another format? Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!
