    Hi:
    I just bought a Lite On external DVD writer 8x.

    I set it up fine, loaded the software.

    I put a non encrypted DVD+R into my computer's DVD ROM drive and a blank DVD into the Lite On.

    I can play the DVD just fine on the computer.
    However, when I try to rip the dvd to my hard drive, I get an error message saying the video source can't be found.

    Can someone help me out?

    The DVD that I'm trying to rip and then make a copy of is an archived DVD of sex and the city, that was made on my Lite On DVD stand alone recorder from my Tivo.

    I want to make a back up copy. I am using the software that came with the Lite On which is Power DVD.

    Please let me know what troubleshooting things I should try. I am not phobic about working with this stuff, but don't know what step to take next to try and fix the issue.
    Thanks.

    Your trying to backup a backup with PowerDVD? huh?

    Download the trial version of Nero, and do a disc copy.
