I'm copying for the first time

OK slapped the pioneer 105 drive in, already at 1.30 firmware so all is well.

Put in a blank DvD.

Installed ‘Pinnacle’ Instant Copy.

Put in ‘Essex Boys’ DvD into my DvD rom drive.

Selected COPY disc > disc.

And…

Of course it didn’t work, 'DvD is protected, cannot copy protected DvD’s. OK so looks like I need some more education, what do I need to do here lads, do I need differant software??

Please help!

OK will have a look now. Cheers

OK, so I burnt an image using DvD Decrypter.

I have another PC with a DvD reader, stuck it in, and… It works!!

Took the disc downstaires to my DvD player, to see if it would work on the big system. I put the disc in, and my DvD play just kept saying ‘loading loading loading’ and eventually stopped.
My DvD machine is about 2 - 3 years old, region free, I would of thought that meant it WOULD read - discs??? Is there something I’m missing here???

Cheers for the advise so far, I’m getting there!! …ish!! :wink:
