While I am not a newbie to backing up movies a problem seems to come up every so often which I am not sure how to solve so I thought I would turn to the pros here for help.I use DVDFab Decrypter to rip movie to my hd and Clonedvd 2 to then burn to a blank dvd(if it needs to be shrunk down),and every so often a movie I have copied in this way will stutter,stop and start,can be once can be several times in a row making the movie no longer fun to watch.I have never really changed any of the settings on either program so is there ones I should,is there better programs which will give me a more consistant quality?.Any help would be appreciated.
Welcome to CDF
I’d say it’s possibly the discs you’re using. Can you run CD-DVD Speed, put a “problem” disc in, and tell us the MID info (under the “Disc Info” tab)?
Also, knowing what burner you have, and its firmware, would be handy
MID is RITEK R03 (002), the burner is a SONY DVD RW DRU-810A firmware 1.0d
You might want to change that media - Ritek isn’t considered to be as good as it once was.
Maybe try some Verbatim media.
I appreciate the help,i am currently using memorex,was using fuji,are those programs I am using good or is there better out there?(quality wise)
I’ve had the same problem with that grade of media (don’t be fooled by the Memorex name) - no problems at all since switching to Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden discs.
As for your programs - DVD Decrypter is great, but no longer updated to handle the latest protections. However, you can still use it in conjunction with a program called RipIt4Me.
Or, you can use CloneDVD2 with AnyDVD running in the background to strip copy protection.
