    so i tried making a back up of cabin fever using dvd x copy, and usualy i dont have problems copying movies, but the program wont let me make copies of certain movies... is there a solution for this problem?

    bonus question: movies like passion of the christ, if i put english subtitles on, will they be the default subtitles, or do i actualy have toggle them on?

    Btw, can you tell im a newb? thanks.

    Use Shrink or DVD Decrypter. Shrink decrypts and shrinks the movie while DVD Decrypter just decrypts.

    I use dvdxcopy platinumRF with AnyDvd & DVD43. I have not had any dvds beat me yet! Not sure about the subtitle question. If I were you, I would just try it. I recommend that you use RW discs. I use Imation 4X +RW media. Have not had a failure yet. I have found this forum absolutely priceless. The lengths that these guys go to in order to help is amazing. Scuba Pete, Vurbal, Nephilim & DrChips are all cool chaps. They get my respect. I love to experiment with different software & different methods. By doing this & playing around, I now have lots of ways to copy movies. I have learned loads through trial & error. I like to jump in with both feet! (Hence RW media)

    I also have Alcohol 120%, Nero 6.6 reloaded (new version)& DVD shrink. My favourite is dvdxcopy platinumRF for copying/compressing films. Alcohol & Nero for copying copies. I have just started using DVD shrink again after a short break. I just want to be able to use it proficiently! Practice makes perfect.

    I don't think you will get the RF version for free. I paid for Platinum, AnyDvd & Alcohol. I didn't mind paying for stuff. I have had very few problems with Platinum. I really like it. I think RF version is still available & is better than the previous. But I think you will have to pay for it. If I were you I would have a go with Shrink & decrypter & the guides in here are spot on. Along with good media, Ritek, Datawrite etc & patience, you will go far.

    I have both Platinum and the RF version. I wish I did not waste the money. The only good thing I recieved from them is I found may way to afterdawn.com. Save your money. If you want to spend money there is better software. After all 321 Stuidos will never update Platium. But Shrink and DVD Decrypter are free and they ROCK! I backed up 102 DVD last month. Try it they are free. What do you have to lose.
