Heh … Imagine me trying to give advice to anyone !
I mean, hey, my first ever DVD writer is still in the box !
(It’s a Sony DRU500A)
And the only reason I bought it was to test a software package that hasen’t even been released yet !!! (It’s due out for download this Friday or Saturday.)
But just maybe it’s the answer for both of us, 'cause I wanted to do exactly what you are talking about in this post.
The software is DVDXCOPY by 321Studio. I heard about on slashdot this week, and I figure the Hollywood types will obliterate it in maybe two days.
To use it (they say) you just load the original DVD in a DVD-ROM, and a blank in your DVD burner.
Then you start the program.
The program gives you two choices to click on; COPY and CANCEL.
That’s it! And it’s just right for my level of competencein the relm of DVD … - err “back-up”.
THANK YOU, 321 STUDIO!
That is, of course, IF the program works.
And IF the new Sony DVD drive works.
And IF the blank media I buy works in the Sony drive.
And IF the new dual Athlon PC I just built works.
And IF if Windows XP works (… hey! there’s a first time for everything!)
And IF the final “back-up” will work in my old Apex 703 DVD Player.
