[QUOTE=Kerry56;2065127]Rip to the hard drive using DVDDecrypter in ISO Read mode. This will give you an ISO file and a small mds file. The mds file contains the layer break information. Load the mds file into DVDDecrypter in ISO Write mode and have at it.
Or better yet, get ImgBurn, which is the updated burning engine from Decrypter. www.imgburn.com Load the mds file into it to burn.
Another method is to use ImgBurn for the whole process. You rip to the hard drive in File mode (Imgburn can’t handle encrypted dvds), then build the image and mds file using ImgBurn. Here is the guide for that: http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=1777
Nothing in life is 100% by the way. One possible problem I foresee is using 8x DL disks in a relatively older burner like the 1650. Perhaps someone more familiar with that drive will chip in and tell you if they are supported in your firmware. I wouldn’t burn faster than 4x.[/QUOTE]
Is it okay to have both DVD Decrypter and ImgBurn installed on my PC? Are they gonna cause conflicts? Because as far as I can see, they are basically the same program.
I’ve always ripped my DVDs with DVD Decrypter in ISO Mode anyway. I did always wonder what that .mds file was there for. At least I know now that I can use it to burn my DL disc.
I’m pretty sure that my Benq 1650 does support Verbatim 8x DL DVD+Rs. I put it in my drive the other day and it said that it will support 2.4x, 4x and 8x recording speeds. I think I might burn at 4x anyway like you said just to be on the safe side.
