    Default burning a dvd...

    Owing to the legal matters of this, if nobody replies, I'll understand

    With that disclaimer said, here's my problem:
    When I burn a dvd, usually it has a vertical scrolling problem, however, I have successfully burnt a disc that didnt, with the same program and method as the others.

    Is it just that some movies are encrypted, or something more serious?

    I use Magic DVD Copier, and WinAVI to convert the files.

    If someone knowledgeable wanted to pm instead of post openly, that's fine too, lol.

    I personaly do not copy DVDs (really, I don't). However, it sounds like a copy protection scheme is interfering with the copy step (as it should under normal circumstances). It may also be your conversion software. Taking your question from a stand point that your copies are for legal purposes under copyright laws, you may want to look for updates to or an updated version of the software that you use. You may also want to try other commercial software like Nero, Roxio, etcetera and see if the problem goes away. There is also the possibility that there is a driver/hardware/software issue which is creating or adding to the problem.

    its probably a sony dvd. i have a buddy i can ask about this. i never burn the dvds i rip though, only rip them and store them on dedicated hard drives for use with my home theater pc.

    nero 8 is probably the best dvd burner out there. i use "dvd fab 5", "dvd shrink" and "any dvd" to rip with. one of these usually will solve an issue i have with another. Power dvd is great for playback.

    Most newer movies can't be un-encrypted using older software, unless it's been updated for the new era of encryption .
    most newer encryption causes rippers to run in a loop and encrypt basicly nothing, while not ever seeing the encrypted file and code.(sony's a big fan of the new encryption)
    And for posting sake, I'm sure your just making a backup of a purchased DVD, right?

    I've also heard of software that might still do what you want to achieve. But you may or may not need a Mac to do it.

    Absolutely, I watch a lot, so was just looking for a way to back them up so my expensive dvd's could be safe

    I may just do as Shame said, rip them to a hard drive and use 'em from there...

    I personally don't advocate the piracy of movies...after all, the Vin Diesels and Brad Pitt's all need a meal ticket too

    delete all 0 byte duration files using dvd shrink and then try burning and see if that solves your backing up problem.

    I guess I'll jump in the pool here. My "buddy" uses anydvd and CloneDVD2 both from Slysoft. I "hear" they work flawlessly, you can try for free for around 30 days also. Seriously I do lots of home movie and DVD stuff and those programs work really well and I've tried lots of different DVD copy programs and editing programs.
    Shame302 nice setup, very nice to see homemade speakers. Do you use partsxpress or ??

    everything (X-over components, tangband and dayton drivers and some hardware) came from parts express save for the Fountek NeoCD3.0 ribbon tweeters. those came from madisound. the electronics, the sub components and loose ends were all sepperate purchases. i still have to tear them down and decide on a finnish. the problem with that is the down time. im very happy with them. you would have to spend easily thousands of dollars to find a speaker of the same calibre in a store. amazing sound and design.
