Ok, here is my dilemma- i need a computer dummies guide to copying dvd's as backups- my son likes Bob the Builder, lol- but he is incredibly hard on the disks and wrecks them all the time- I have dvddecrypter and can get it so save the movie to my hard drive, but then i can't get it to burn onto a disk that will play in the dvd player I have dvdshrink as well, and read bunches of things, but couldnt make it work- i don't have nero on my computer, just roxio, and the nero trial has expired- is there anything that can be used that is easier? i tried dvdclone2 as well, the one with the sheep as the logo and it worked pretty well but of course, i expired the trial on that too, and it was only doing about a quarter of the movies that i tried- any quick and easy solutions? if i have to pay for a ripper/burner, which one is the best? thanks so much for any help.
