My posting in no way was rude.
I simply stated if you had any doubts of the information Forum Members were providing to visit the Official Home page of Elaborate Bytes and obtain information there. Nothing rude about that.
I do question the manner in which you asked your original question.
If the purpose of you original inquiry was quote ->
â€œâ€the purpose was to find out if what clonedvd does to my dvd when it rips to my hard drive is either superior or inferior to rencoding methods. or simply was asking if what clonedvd does is a good way of compressing my movie to get it on a dvd-r and stil have a quality videoâ€â€
Why didnâ€™t you ask that question in the first place instead of the cryptic manner that you originally asked your question?
Hereâ€™s a useful tip -> It helps to ask the correct question if you are anticipating receiving the correct answer.
