    I had all my Cd's and DVd's Stolen from my house a few weeks back so i thought i would now back them all up. I have been trying to d that But i seem to be having troble when i try and back up the dvd's. I am using Sonic Digital Media and burning to Tech IQ dvd-r 8X/4.7 GB. The CD's are no prblem but the it tells me that there is an error when copying the Dvd's. I downloaded the DVD43 but it hasnt worked so i am all out nof ideas. I just want to keep all my master CD's and DVD's away so i only ever have to watch and use the copied ones. Please help if you could.

    Hi.

    If you want a free 1-Click solution, try Ripit4me. Gide and program links below:

    If you want to pay a little, purchase AnyDVD from Slysoft (try for 21-days free) and then use free software like DVD Decrypter, ImgBurn, and DVD Shrink.

    You also need to use good quality DVD media like Verbatim, Taiyo Yude, nad Made in Japan labeled Sony and Fuji disks. Also make sure your burner firmware is up to date. Firmware can be found at the manufacturers support site as well as at firmware database sites such as the following:

    Another factor is to not burn at max speed. Half or less the rated speed of the media seems to work out fairly well for most. Don't multitask during burning. Shutdown any unnecessary applications. Also keep your disk defragmented.
