Hi guys - Thanks for the reply
Firstly, my PC is old. 2002 in fact! AMD 900 Mhz, 500 MB RAM, 40 GB hard drive. OK, I need a new PC but for what I want it does exactly what I need. And I got it free too! I have over 20 GB free so space isn't an issue.
Secondly, every DVD I have tried to copy with HD decrypter (HDD) has passed without any problems and copied perfectly every time.
What actually happens is : I start HDD, insert DVD into D drive, HDD then reads the disc and d:\Blues Brothers is shown and the bar going across which means it is being read.
Then HDD just closes down. Can't try or do anything and can't press start in the first place.
I have repeated this process, cleaned the disc a few times and still same problem and I believe that the disc itself is triggering the close down of HDD. I have put other discs into the DVD drive and HDD reads them with no problem at all.
Could this be a copy protection issue? Ie, a new protection software that detects HDD, etc and causes them shut down?
I am trying to copy it with DVD shrink instead now and it's OK but as my PC spec is naff I have to wait for..... over 6 hours!!!!!
Any suggestions (apart from a new PC!).
