Hello All This is my first post here, although I have lurked here on occasion. Here is my situation: My boss just bought me a new office computer, a very loaded Dell 8400 with a 16x dual layer DVD+/-RW drive. I would like to use it to back up my store bought DVD movies. Now, my only previous experience with this type of copying was using the older 126.96.36.199 version of DVD XCopy on my Sony Vaio home computer (It worked fine on my early model 2X DVD-R burner do I never even bothered upgrading it). I thought about installing my old XCopy software on my new Dell, but I don't even know if I can activate it anyways, so I was thinking it's time to graduate to a new way of doing things. I would still like to keep things as simple as possible though, as I am not really all that tech saavy. So, all that said, I did some searching on here and I think I have a good solution, but I just wanted to verify if I am on the right track. If I were to invest in AnyDVD and DVD Copy 3, would this be a good set-up for directly copying CSS discs? Also, the info on the DVD Copy 3 says it will burn any type of video file to DVD easily - is this true? Because I have a lot of Mpeg and other movie file types I would love to burn to DVD, and the only way I have been able to do this before was through a very long and cumbersome, hit and miss process using the Movieshaker and DVDit software that came with my Vaio, and then I could only do it with certain Mpeg files...Anyways, sorry for the verbose first post, and any input woulf be greatly appreciated.
