First of all i would like to apologise for posting indentical threads , i didnt read the rules !!! I need someone to help me through making back-up copies of my dvd`s , I have been using dvdxcopy express and it worked fine until recently, now its reading the dvd ok but when the blank is inserted it burns within 10-20 seconds , i have since used dvd shrink and when its finished and i insert a blank then it says write failure or something to that effect , could it be that im using the wrong media ???? by the way if and when i get this working again, can i make copies of any of the back-ups i do ???? I think I need step by step instructions !!!! Can someone help !!!
