Iv'e been lurking around here for a couple months learning quite a bit about backing up dvds. I'm using Ripit4me+dvddecrypter+shrink,then burning to disc. All on 16xverbs-r @8x. No coasters, and scans on cddvd-speed look pretty good with an average of 95 quality score. Now for the burning question: Is there any difference between burning from a "file" ripped with dvddecypter and an "iso image" ripped with dvddevrypter?? what I'm after here is the qualty of the burned disc. I have tried a couple of discs using the iso read-write mode and although they work fine on the pc, my settop players will not play them at all. cant even get to the menu. Thanks in advance , this sie is awesome!!!!
