Have a few questions that I would like to ask. I started out backing up movies using dvdxcopy express that came with my liteon ldw411s. The only problem was that it would only do the movie no menus (like the menus). So I got a copy of their platinum version 3.2.01 or something like that. All was well for a while using memorex DVD+R media untill lately it seems like alot of the movies (~23%) are not playing in my stand alone. So I have moved to using dvd shrink (only done 2 disc at 50/50 here). What I do now is just use dvd shrink to do everything, but sometimes when I hit play from the menu it won't work I can go to the chapters and that works (stand alone or PC). Oh I have verfied with toshiba (stand alone brand) and found out that it doesn't support dvd+r. Guess I was just lucky for awhile getting it to play them. So anyways I have now switched over to sony dvd-r, by the way anyone that reads this staples if having a sale that ends on 4/10/2004 for a 10 pack at 9.94 a box. Now the questions. 1. Should I have used DVD decrypter to rip the entire movie to my hd and not just movie. Then use shrink to reauthor, compress and then back up. 2. Use just shrink cause what happened was a fluke. 3. Forget about it and go back to just getting the movie and no menus. I think that covers everthing. Rest assure I spent the last 2 days reading through the forum and am still rubbing my head so now I'm posting.
