    ah ok that thing, yeah i got 512Mb of RAM. thinking of just giving up on the whole damn thing! does the fact that its got AMD 64 Athlon instead of intel matter?

    when was the last time you did a clean install off your system.
    You seem to have an abundance of burning apps, do you use all of them? or are they accumulated and you just havent got around to uninstalling them?

    sorry dude for the delays in reply, my email is playing up and i dont always get notified of emails. as for the the apps, yeah they have accumulated just sorta covering my bases really. update is i have figured out how to burn dvds from ripped ones (divxtodvd) but the back up ones i'm trying are still playing games. i'm gonna have another crack at it tonight but dont know what program to use! nero should work bu then again so should dvdclone. any ideas?

    not neccessarily true i'm afraid.There is some contention that the more burning apps that you have on your pc can or will eventaully lead to your pc getting an overlaod and this may account for the lack of burning thats occurring.

    i do a backup of my system every 6 months or so as the stuff really does accumulate.When this happens i found that my system would go slow, i would have trouble burning dvds etc.

    I think i had about 50 burning and encoding apps loaded.

    true! man thats alot of apps. well i've figured out the ripped dvd side of things, they seem t be going good. its the 'back-up' copies i've got on here that aren't burning right. i used to dvd decrypter to copy onto the computer (and everything is fine. its plays on the pc fine) i have tried buring with nero and clone dvd but they are both burning with a skip in them. the sound and visual jumps. i've looked at the buring speed and the slowest they give you is 4x, which i use. you know of any good apps that with burn a decrypted dvd onto a disc? (by the way, i'm not buring all the files from each dvd, just the main movie one cos of size, that matter?)

    One of the things I did was a complete reinstall of windows via the recovery tools. A friend of mine said that the sonicdvd preinstalled on the pc, when activated, can play havoc with other apps. So I uninstalled the whole sonicdvd thing as part of my solution. My stuff works great now, am using divxtodvd2 registered version to convert and nero burning to burn. I do not use nero vision express at all because divxtodvd is really the only converter you need. If it doesn't work for you, try the winavi converter which is on a par with the divxtodvd. If at all possible stay away from nero vision express. Before this problem, Nero Vision Express was the ONLY application I ever used and I was very reluctant to let it go but I did, and there's no regrets.
    BTW dvdtodivx has an inbuilt burner that you can use to burn your files instead of nero.Just go to options, burning, and tick burn result to dvd. Winavi also has its own burner, and dvd decrypter will also burn your vobs.

    yeah you've gone and done that to yourself ya know. haha so tell me, i've got the ripped dvd worked out. now the back up copy from dvd decrypter is my next challenge. divxtodvd wont let me burn a 6.7Gb dvd to a4.7Gb so i have to burn just the main movie. there some way of working out exactly which file is the main movie. pheonix11, step me thru your process of backing-up a encrypted dvd to a dvd i can stick in my player and enjoy. i'll see if i'm missing somethang

    there is another way.Clonedvd ver2 will allow you to compress your 6.7 gig to a 4.3 gig disc through compression.More often than not if you dont know what to look for ,you wont be able to tell how the quality suffers .

    Just an alternative but you will be able to back the whole disc and extras with this method

    I use dvd shrink and dvd decrypter for all my backups. check out this place for some great hints on backups etc. If after that there are still some things you need to know let me know and I will guide you.
