Hi guys and gals,
This is my first post on this forum and i wasn't too sure where to put it, but i'm hoping it will help others with a similar setup to mine...
I've lost count of how many different progs and firmware etc its took me to make a perfect backup, but i've finally cracked it.
Here's my specs and procedure etc....
AMD Athlon 64 3800+
Asus A8V Deluxe (motherboard)
1GB Crucial BallistiX
74GB WD Raptor
200GB Maxtor D-Max 10
Nec 3500AG DVD/RW
I'm using a firmware downloaded from this site (LD V2 Beta6) thanks for that
Media - Datawrite Classic (Grey top/Fuji Dye) DVD-R.
Software - Nero 184.108.40.206 - Recode 2 and DVD43 CSS copy protection.
I use the (Recode 2) to rip the files to the hard drive (main movie only), then restart (Recode 2) and import the files from where they saved (My Docs/Recode), then change the target to the DVD/RW and burn at 8x speed.
All the other progs i tried (DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink etc) worked fine when i played them on my pc, but when i played them in my dvd player they skipped frames quite badly, but now they even play fine on my PS2
I've only tried 4 movies so far (all perfect), but it took me 8 blanks to get there, so hopefully this will save some peeps a headache
Good luck all
