    So say I made a backup of one of my movies... Matrix we will say.

    I now have a copy of the Matrix somewhat compressed on a DVD+R. would there be significant quality loss if I made a copy of the copy?

    As long as your using good media,there should be no quality loss.

    Digital recordings do not degrade with repeated copying as analog copies tend to do.

    Good quality media and a 4x burnspeed on those original backup copies allow me to rerip them again using nero's disc copy feature.I can't tell a difference,even when I re-ripped from one of my re-rips.

    I also use dvd decrypter: Iso read/ Iso write
    Dvd shrink can also do this,just a bit slower than nero disc copy.

    All 3 of those ways work great,no difference between these re-rips and the first backup.

    If you have a lot of errors on that first backup-poor media or burned too fast, trying to copy them will be more challenging. Later

    If it was a bad copy, then they will have the exact same errors as well so make sure your original burn is done with quality media and test them on occasion using a program such as DVDInfoPro or similar.

    Being relatively new to it all im guessing the media id is the number printed on the inside of the clear part of the dvd..

    If you have dvd decrypter,you can put the disc in and click mode, then iso read, and it should tell you the I.D.
    You could also download the program that scubabud mentioned.
