I can understand your setiment for xcopy, but IMHO, it really is a dinasour. CloneDVD2 is much easier to use, presents the oppurtunity of more features, and works reliably, in correlation with AnyDVD.
If you select copyDVD (without selecting the keep menus) my back up copy came out fine. Some movies are just plain picky.
CloneDVD2, will back up Crank, with menus preserved without a problem.
