Why DVD ripping first??

    I have been using DVD X Copy Express and the DVD ripping method (DVD Decrypter, DVD2One, and Nero) to make back-ups of my movies. Obviously one is a lot quicker than the other. Is the main difference between the two methods... With the DVD ripping method you can copy a copy?? (haven't tried this yet, but heard it works.) Or is personal preference?

    Yes, that's one of the advantages.

    The Wood: From what I was told the other day, you cannot use DxCx to backup a copy. You can however make your backup with DxCx and then copy that backup by using the Nero "disc Copy" option.

    From all the advice I have received the past few days, I am sure there are quicker/other ways to do this I just haven't had the time to try. Take the time to read other forums about copying a copy, they are extremely helpful.

    There are ways to bypass the back up copying restrictions within DVDXCopy.
    If you search hard enough you should be able to find it as I don't think it'll have expired yet (message threads expire after a certain time limit)

    Yea, I figured there was a way around those restrictions. I searched for it but could not find it.

    I'd never suggest using DVDXCopy to anyone
    In the first place it used to have warning screens splashing 'this is a back up copy' or similar (dunno if these warning screens are still incorperated)
    Plus there is the fact that you need to know the work around for copying a back up... etc etc

    [bold]DVD Decrypter
    DVD2One or DVD Shrink
    RecordNow DX or Nero [/bold]

    Much more preferable choices of the back up process imho

    With the methods above you have no problem doing a copy of a back up (I use Nero)

    I agree with herbsman.
    I use exactly the same software (just not Nero)
    If I can be bothered, I might try and use InstantCopy...I've heard it produces nicer quality video (but takes longer).
    From all the guides on the net, I found it hard to identify which software is best. Figure out what is best for you - experiment and see what results you get.
