Small Prblems when backing up my DVD's

    I have recently managed to get my DVD's backed up by using the following software and the instructions as per AfterDawn: SmartRipper, DVD2AVI, TMPGEnc, and Nero. It is a little frustrating 'cause you have to use all these different tools, but this is not the problem, at least I got the process to work. One or two hitches though: (1) My original DVD has great surround sound, the VCD Backup's not. I have tried two movies that I know has surround sound. (2) Some movies does not end up in full screen , you get a kind of ''envelope' result at the end (black spaces top and bottom). Can you perhaps assist? My PC spec: Win XP, 2 G P4, 512 RAM, 60 G HDisk. I will appreciate your assistance in this regard.

    Hi and thanks for your response! I will try to get hold of either rempeg2 or CCE2.5, I just hope that I will be able to find some clear instructions somewhere as I am rather new to this. Take care!

    try changing your settings in TMPGEnc plus to FULL SCREEN. and make sure to save the files in AC3 format which should come out as DD 5.1

    Have a read of this guide...

    This is what I use and it explains most things in step by step stages.
    or have a read at

    hope this helps

    Hi Jimmy, thanks for this guide. Unfortunately this Dummy guide describes backing up your DVD's with a DVD Writer only - unfortunately I only have a CD-RW, so maybe this is some motivation to buy a DVD-Writer... :) Anyhow, I will study these docs and will shout again should I need some further assistance. Take care!
