Hi guys

I an trying to make a backup of a DVD (which I bought from a shop BTW! - I assume it is still legal to make backups of DVDs you own?? - if not Im sure a mod will come along to tell me I am wrong). I have created an img file of the DVD which I am now trying to burn onto a blank DVD-RW. I am using Imgburn to do this. However, the program has been stuck at the ‘Writing leadin’ screen for one and a half hours now, is this normal? The file is just over 4.1GB in size so should fit no probs. I cancelled after waiting one and a half hours, maybe I should use a different program - if so what can you knowledgeable people recommend?? I have Nero and would have used that but have read on these forums that people tend to have more success with Imgburn over Nero. Please help!!!

Edit: Have just tried it for the SIXTH time, and it has magically started burning?!?!?!? So erm, can someone please delete this now defunct post??

the only problem i’ve had with imgburn is when i’ve tried to overburn a disc, but other than that imgburn is hands down the best program for the job
