I've only been backing up (or attempting to) for a couple of months. I have some original DVD's that I've copied. I've used DVD Encrypter (a little) and mostly I use DVD Shrink, I also have a copy of DVD 4 3 which is suppose to remove the copy restrictions. My DVD-RW is an 8x and writes to DVD+R and DVD-R. My problem is many times my copies will not work on my RCA DVD player but they all seem to work on my Samsung DVD player. I've also had a friend check them out on her computr and she cannot play them either. As and example using DVD Shrink to compress the DVD movie "Saw" nothing was deleted and it was copied with backup only not deep analysis. On my RCA player I got an Incompatible Disk message, but on the Samsung it plays fine. It also plays on my computer using the MS Media software.
I'd like to make copies that I can play on any DVD player device. Here is my set up if this helps.
Gigahertz / AMD Athalon MB (sound is built in)
1.2 GHZ proccesor
768 Mb ddr ram
128 All in Wonder Video card
Mach-8 (nec DVD-RW ND-2500A)
52X CD player
I'll appreciate any help that is offered.
