    Hi Shazza.

    I know how frustrating it can be learning to burn dvds. I suggest that you do what i did and look atthe guides on this web site. They are a great source of information, and thats where i learnt a lot. They are step by step guides, and you can pick what soft ware you use. Personally i use dvd decrypter, dvd2one and nero 6, but thats just my choice. A lot of people seem to find satisfaction in dvd shrink. The choise is yours.

    Hope this helps a little bit

    Kerry

    THANX KERRY FOR YOUR RESPONSE, THE ONES YOU LISTED R THEY EASY ENOUGH TO FOLLOW STEP BY STEP. DO THEY ALSO OVERIDE COPYWRITE DVDS. HOW EASY WAS IT FOR YOU TO START.
    R THEY EXPENSIVE TO BUY, I HAVE SOFTWARE CALLED BLINDWRITE, I CANT SUS THAT OUT. WOULD THIS BE SIUTABLE OR IS IT NO GOOD

    As Kerry has quite rightly explained there is a few ways to back up DVDs.
    My preffered choice is also
    DVD Decrypter
    DVD2One
    Nero 6 Ultra

    But there are many DVD Shrink users here (on aD)...and that freeware dispenses of both DVD Decrypter & DVD2One (it will be down to trial & error)
    There are many guides about , feel free to check GUIDES section of Afterdawn.com & please don't type w/ CAPS lock on as it is deemed as shouting in Forum.

    Using DVD Decrypter or DVD Shrink automatically removes encryption/macrovision !!

    Hi Kerry
    I have been backing up my dvd's for some time and i use what i think is the best 2 bits of kit you need.
    Smartripper and clone dvd is all you need and i know you can find the guide how to use clone dvd on this site and you may find smartripper guide to on this site to.I have 100% sucssess with these two bits of software you really can't fail.I have tried most of the others two like one to one Nero 6 and all the others.I just think these two are easiest for someone just getting started.
