My girl just bought Closer and I noticed it was a Superbit DVD. I was trying to figure out why this would be released with a dts soundtrack, but then I noticed this was a columbia(sony) release. I then proceeded to see if I could back this up with just shrink and nero. Usually, when you open an arcoss disc the initial analyzation fails, but this one didn't. I then attempted to back it up with a +RW to test if it would burn to completion. About an hour and a half later it was done and played perfectly on my test(touchy) dvd player. So, did sony give up on this useless protection?
