    i recently downloaded a couple of films in Avi. format and burned them to a dvd disk to save space on my hdd. these files were to be encoded to play on a dvd player, but i needed them to be back on my computer to do that, so when it came to copy the files back on. 1 by 1 and encode them, i cant seem to copy them back over, i am able to watch them from the disk, but not copy them back from the dvd disk. the disk dose say on it, "double protection system" but i did't think that would cause any problem, i have copyed files back from a dvd disk before but just not now, the error message i get is "Cannot copy : The system cannot read from the specifyed device" could someone give a hand in sortin this out.

    thanks

    Hi aaronf157,

    Rip your disc with DVD Decrypter in the ISO mode. Even though your files aren't encrypted you will be getting them in an ISO Image, meaning that what ever is there you'll get exactly as it is. Once you've gotten it back on your HD you can do what ever you want :)

    If you get an error, click "Retry" and keep doing that until you've worked through all your errors and your files would then be error free -

    Cheers,

    Pete

    Hey aaronf157, Consider this a parting invitation,

    Stop on back, don't be a stranger, you're Welcome even if you don't have problems to solve -

    You can just "Hang out" and read some, improve your knowledge, help others if you can spot their problem, 3 heads are better than 2 (said the Cyclops) Or hang out in the "Safety Valve" a forum for gossiping about anything and everything under the sun :)

    Check de place out, you just might find a little something that'll interest you -

    Me ? Hey, I'll be over there, out from under that broiling hot sun, under the "Potted" Palm, right next to the water cooler. Just chewin' the fat and waiting for the next Newbie who needs a bit "O" help - Stop by and say "Howdy" -

    See ya,

    Pete :p)
