I do use decrypter whenever I have titles on the original. Right now most of my editable recording is taken from a 6 hour rewriteable that just has one track so decrypter doesn't help in that situation==also trying to keep the guide short and sweet. Also==looks like decrypter will become harder to find as it is off the market now.
Do you know of any program that will "easily" nip the first 1 to 5 minutes off a file? I have used chainsaw and chopper xp but they have alot of extra steps to get this simple job done. Other common programs recommended have to load the file first which I want to avoid.==>Ie==I have noticed that many corrupt unplayable files become "normal" when the first few minutes of the file are removed. Saved a few bad disks so far and now start my overnight recordings a few minutes early as a safeguard.
I use shop 4 tech, meritline, and newegg depending on sales/price, compatibility and use.
