please forgive me i have read loads of threads on this and it seems, well confusing. 1st off i love things done simple, for example, when i backed up dvd's i was using shrink,decrypter,any dvd, fab dvd and so on to try and get the best picture, even after asking is there a way i can just do a direct copy, it still came back with all these different methods until i found out that having a duel layer i can use just decrypter to read the disk then write onto a double layer disk and i have a 100% dvd. so my question is pretty similar to the one i asked for backing up dvd's. 1st off i need a hd-dvd drive that can write hd-dvd's which i can get. secondly is there BLANK hd-dvd's? if there is where can u buy them from. and thirdly the big one, is there a program where i can just rip the hd-dvd then burn it straight onto a hd-dvd so its a direct copy including menu's , extras ect ect. if not whats the best way without loosing any picture quality, taken into mind i'm a novice hence why i like it simple lol. thanks everyone i know u must get this a lot.
