I've just started to try and back up some DVD videos. The first one I did was using DVD shrink and refering to the guide here. All went well. The second one was a dvd-5 disk and it had copyright protection that the dvd shrink couldn't cope with, so I downloaded and used the DVD Decrypter programe, it seemed to be doing the job,unfortunately the main video file ends up as an "Easy CD Creator Image File". I suspect this file is useless to me and I've already got plenty of coasters so I didn't try to burn it. A little dig around the forum here and I get the impression that I need to remove Roxio from my system. I already have Nero but it's pre-loaded. From what I have read I need to remove this too and install a fresh copy of Nero. Once I've done this I'm assuming I'll see the right file type and be able to burn it no bother. Have I got this right? Finally can copy protected DVD-9 be backed up by using DVD Decrypter followed by DVD shrink? Also I notice there are issues concerning media. The media I have is branded 'eproformance' for DVD-R and Memorex DVD-RAM for TV recording. Is the eproformance OK and should I buy say Panasonic DVD-RAM in the future rather than Memorex? Any help very much appreciated. Thank-you.
