Question 1: Does anyone have experience with DVD-cloner III? I downloaded a trial version last night to check out the program because I liked the fact it includes a decrypter, plus the price was right if I decided to buy it. The trial version removed the copy protection on “March of the Penguins” and copied the movie to my hard drive just fine. But the problem began when I tried to burn the movie to a Maxell DVD-RW disc. (DVD-cloner recommends using a RW disc because the trial program only partially copies a movie, which I assume is designed to encourage buying the entire program. I have used Maxell discs without a problem.)
Anywho, DVD-cloner never seemed to finish partially burning the movie. It never showed what percentage of the movie had been copied, for example. Also, at the beginning of the burning process, it kept prompting me to insert a blank disc even though I already had. I had to hit “Ignore” to start the burning process.
I searched this forum for DVD-cloner, but no hits
Question 2: Is 1ClickDVDCopyPro really that good? I downloaded a trial version a few weeks ago, but I never could figure out how to use a separate decrypter with it. So, I uninstalled the trial version. The price of $99 is a tad steep, too, considering I would still have to use a separate decrypter.
Question 3. I have been using DVDDecrypter to remove copy protection, but I’m still having trouble burning the movie to a blank disc using DVDShrink3.2. I have read and re-read the instructions, help tips, etc., but I’m missing something somewhere. What exactly do I do after I have re-authored a movie with DVDShrink3.2? I know this sounds dumb, but my success in copying movies is strictly a trial-and-error process. Once I’ve re-authored a movie, I just start playing around until the process begins.
I have used DVDDecrypter to burn a movie onto a dual-layer disc, which worked flawlessly. Too bad the discs still cost at least around $3.50 apiece, and that’s in a threepack.
My DVD reader/writer is an NEC ND-6650A. I’ve used a variety of blank DVDs, including Maxell, Memorex and Verbatim. Despite popular opinion favoring Verbatim, I can’t say one brand is better.
Thanks for the help.
