    Did you copy on-the-fly? Try rip the dvds to the HD first to check if the ripping is successful. That way you can better pinpoint where the problem had occurred. Also, can you be more specific about what kind of softwares and discs have you been using?

    i hope this helps answer your questions first i was copying a 20th century fox released dvd of mash the ultimate collection disc 2. i use the free version of dvdfabdycrptor to decrypt to the harddrvie than dvd shrink to shrink down the files and burn to dvd r/rw discs that vary from meromex imation etc. the nero software came with my burner i believe nero 6.1 not sure exactly on which version of nero 6 but i just recently installed video codecs xvid ffdshow code 2kmedia pack and the klite full packs.

    i found that when i had the problem with disc 3 after installing these packs it copied and burned like normal went to play and it worked like any burnt dvd copy would but i went to try disc 2 and the same thing i get the 20th logo fbi warnings where the menus is a extra big blank screen with no video limited audio i looking for more software even considering reformatting the harddrive if needed if i did that any suggestions on what video codecs to install so i don't have this happen also i just found on the afterdawn side the xp and vista codec packs which i installed trying to add what ever i can that may solve this been seeing what is listed in other playback problems sorry for spelling errors i am grateful for any help or advisement you can offer

    I must admit that your reply confuses me more. *_*

    First of all, did it work with disc2 or any disc of mash?

    Second, did it work with any other discs?

    Third, did it work after ripping to harddisk (i.e. did it play nicely with picture and sound) BUT before burning to blank DVD?

    Finally, too many codecs may cause big problems. In your case, it probably is not a codec related issue at all. So stop installing more codecs for the time being.

    Dear CLurker,

    I think we need to be a bit more patient here. Now since copying dvd often involves several steps, it is better if we first figure out 'what' and 'where' things go wrong for the purpose of finding solutions. So let's focus on bonus disc 2 for the time being: After you ripped it to the HD, was everything O.K. (i.e. did you get all the files and did they play exactly the same on the HD as with the original dvd)? If not, what were the problems?

    Once again, I'm talking about the files you ripped to HD, not the files AFTER burning to a blank dvd.
