    I've made a copy of a DVD using DVD XCopy Platinum of a kids movie. I'd like to make a second copy to leave at my parents house but no longer have the original. When a attempt to do a copy disc using Roxio it says the source used 2298496 blocks but there are onnly 2297888 on a blank. How did the DVD X Copy use more than was available? How do I correct this?

    My suggestion would to trash both programs but since I got suckered in to buying DVD XCopy too - I'll just suggest you trash Roxio - without a doubt that program has caused more trouble that another program on a modern day PC.

    Download and use DVD Decrypter to read your copy in the ISO mode putting the files on your HD and then burn it to disc in the Write ISO mode. In - Out, the exact same size :p)


    BTW bruns2960, Welcome to our little Club -

    Feel free to come on back when you want to backup your DVD's easily and for free -

    Until then, use this to get rid of that annoying warning screen when using XPress -
