    Hi:

    Recently, I acquired a Pioneer DVR-106D External DVD Drive, which came with NTI burning software, something called NTI Backup Now! software. I am seeking a solid opinion on NTI Backup Now! Is it worth $50?

    Thanks,

    wlloyd

    Thanks, Herbsman.

    Seems that my offer of $50 is an appreciable discount from the $80 shown in the ZDNet review.
    Until I can find how to copy DVDs in a reasonable amount of time, I do not plan to invest in any more related software. I "blew it," I think by plunking down for Replicant2, which won't overcome encryption.
    Talk about "pricey," they should give that software away.

    Any tips on copying an encrypted DVD within 2 1/2 hours?

    Thanks,

    wlloyd

    I use

    DVD Decrypter (free)
    DVD2One (about €39)
    Nero 6 Ultra (forget the price of this , but you can get 30 day demo)

    But you can save some money perhaps by using DVD Shrink instead of DVD Decrypter & DVD2One (as DVD Shrink is free also + it unencrypts & compresses all in one).

    I persoanlly think good burning software should be supported (ie; paid for) lol

    Anyway , feel free to ask for any other advice - [bold]herb[/bold]
    P.S. The method I mentioned above that I use takes about 1hr & thats cos I can only burn at X2 : ]-~

    Herb:

    I have learned over the years that whatever the endeavor KEEP IT Simple. Please tell me what I would need with Nero Ultra 6 to copy DVDs. I suspect that my system is incompatible with DVD Shrink(and its children).

    Thanks,

    You seriously need to sort your system spec out as I dont know how you have your burner installed etc..
    But if (as you stated on another thread) DVD Decrypter takes 90 minutes to successfully rip a DVD then I would say there is something that needs sorting.

    I dont think it's down to the software basically (I could be wrong but its the way it sounds).
    Have you tried altering Primary / Secondary settings , Slave / Master etc. Maybe the jumper switch setting ?
