Firstly, hello everyone, as you can see I’m new.
I hope someone here will be able to help, as I am not very good as this technical stuff.
I have been trying to backup my film collection to my hard drive 1 film at a time, and burn them to dual layer discs. I’m doing this through my laptop, hence the need to have separate ripping & burning processes, since I can only have 1 disc in at a time.
I’m using DVD Shrink to backup the films, but when I get to the burning stage it all goes wrong & I don’t know why, but I don’t want lots of expensive coasters so I had to give up after 3 botched attempts last night.
Apparently DVD Shrink shouldn’t be used for burning dual layer discs, so I made an ISO of one film and tried to burn it to disc using Nero. I got it to verify the data afterwards, and it aborted halfway through, and when I tested the disc, it only worked up to the mid-point, so I’m sure that it’s to do with the dual layers, but I don’t know for sure, or how to fix it.
Basically, I need an idiot-proof, simple setup of ripping & burning software that’ll backup the dvd in it’s entirety to a folder on my hard drive, then let me put in a blank DL disc & burn it in it’s entirety, and then have it able to play like my original one.
Can someone please help because it’s really infuriating and making me feel very very stupid.
