    hmm, not fimiliar with clonedvd2, but have you reauthored the files on your HD? If it is a dvd-9 you are copying (which most of them today are) then you must compress the files using programs such as dvd2one, or dvdsqueeze. these programs compress the files and make them fit on single layer dvds' (must be under equal to or under 4.37gig to fit). Not sure why your burner is saying its complete. that could be the reason why there not there, (if your not taking this second step, after decrypting the files to your HD).

    hi, yes after using decryptor to decode to hd i am now using dvd shrink to encode just the main movie. even though the size is now 4.3gb it says that it wont burn to dvd. i am using nero 5.5. perhaps it is my burn engine that is failing? could it be my dvd burner? i am using ricoh mp5125? any thoughts?

    Try using DVD Decrypter to burn your files instead of Nero, and you really need to update Nero as well.

    How fast is it to backup a dvd-9 to a dvd-5?

    Thanks Flip - Pimps for inferior, ripped off software, making outlandish, irrelevant claims should not be allowed on these forums.

    yes it may be faster but dont you lose the resolution cos of copying to cd is much smaller file?
