    you should be able to do a disc copy with Nero or whatever you use, except x copy

    so long as it aint bigger than 4.3gb (which seeing as you have done a back-up already then it cant be) try using using DVD Decrypter in iso read then iso write mode.......not the best way to do it but it will work and it is free!!!!!!

    Oh and to be honest i'd ditch all 321 products (dvd x copy and the like) and use the free option instead.

    hiya oriphus......is that really the case?????

    i assumed that if you owned the original (and any copies were for personel use) you could run off as many as you liked?

    though now thinking about it i can see why the law would state you only need one back-up at a time.

    Yes he is alright, it's a home movie they haven't passed llaws against that (yet) :) Doesn't "fair use" constitute "personal" copies? If I take one camping and leave one at home as well as leave the original at home isn't htat considered "fair use"? (of course I own the original but I don't use them anymore I use and abuse the backups)

    hi:

    why don't you use dvd shrink. let shrink copy it to your hard drive and then use a writing software such Imgtool etc to write it to your blank. Many ways to do it, this is just my way...

    The law states that u can have only one back-up copy of an original. If in the event that the original gets destroyed and u wish to back up ur back up - well...thats a grey area....

    There are no restrictions on home made movies of course

    Thanks Oriphus, I didn't know that you could only make 1 backup, but I guess that makes sense it is a "backup" not a copy, my bad. Guess I'll have to quit that :( Oh well
