    the1pro,

    For starters, You have GOT to use some punctuation when you write. One sentence that runs on for a paragraph is hard to read and understand.

    When you say you're working with a 7.1 DVD is that the disc size, 7.1GB ?
    Next, you say you checked the Data on the disc ? Did you copy standard Data on the DVD OR were you trying to say that you copied a DVD Video and the same size files were on both DVD's when the burn was finished ?

    Finally, I know it seems like I wasn't paying attention but I'm an old "Dude" and I missed the part about what programs you were using and what your settings were – Could you goover that once again then I might have an idea or two –

    Till I hear from you,

    Sea Yaaaaa

    okay. The size of data 7.1 gb on the original and the burned copy. The programs used are shrink,dvd x copy only has support up to 4.7 gb,dvd cloner which has dual layer support and will support up to 15 gb and DVD Decrypter . The movie burns fine on the dual layer dvd but will not play correctly. thanks for the reply

    the1pro,

    OK, I want to get it straight -

    Programs used:

    DVD Shrink - it does support dual layer

    DVD XCopy - Doesn't support dual layer

    DVD Decrypter, was this used as a ripper ? If so, in which mode ? Was this program used as a burner ?

    DVD Cloner - I'm sorry - I'm unfamilular with the program BUT will look for someone who is and can help us -

    If your dual layer burn was sucessful and it was burnid 1: 1, it should work.

    If an incorrect setting was choosen, then data was transfered but not necessarly in the proper order which would account for it playing up to chapter selection and no farther.

    Again, I have to ask, what programs were you using and what were your settings. What we need now are the exact steps you performed in this backup starting with the first proggy and it's settings continuing to the end as we know it isn't possible to use DVD Shrink, XCopy, DVD decrypter and DVD Cloner -.all in a single backup

    Pete

    I will try to answer the questions. used all the programs on dvd cloner used settings (copy to d9)
    shrink left all settings the way it came and followed guide.
    DVD x copy just set to copy dvd burning in x copy movie plays ok until the last 15 min then it frezzes.
    I guess i can remove some extras but would like a exact copy.
    DVD Decrypter, was used to rip.the files , (at $10 a dvd) is a small price to pay to learn. thanks

    Huuuuummmmm, Me thinks there's too many ingredients in the stew pot -

    I don't believe there's a ripper in DVDCloner but as I said, I'm not familiar with the proggy So here's your choices -

    Recipe 1.
    Rip with DVD Decrypter in the Mode, File. Pick up files with DVDCloner then burn to disc.

    Recipe 2.
    Rip with DVD Decrypter in the Mode, File. Pick up files with DVD Shrink and burn to disc with DVD Decrypter OR, (my choice) burn with Nero - (Yes, Nero handles dual layer (DVD-9):)
    a 30-Day Nero trial can be had here - http://www.ahead.de/us/nero6-ultraedition.php

    It is doubtful that DVD XCopy can handle DVD-9 as that technology wasn't available when DVD XCopy was being made.
