Yes, I am very green to this DVD copying process. I began trying to copy educational videos to provide extra and backup copies for all of our instructors and have run into a couple of glitches. I had been using 1ClickDVD with dvd43 as the decrypter. All went well for 9 of the 12 DVDs I attempted to copy. With the final 3 I kept getting slow burns, bad sectors, etc. One of the source discs was right out of the package-never been viewed and all were done by the same company within a two month time. I was using the same Verbatum blanks for all burning. It was suggested I try AnyDVD as the encrypter instead of dvd43. I removed dvd43 and downloaded AnyDVD. The disc did copy and burn, BUT apparently the errors that surfaced with dvd43 were correct as the burned disc had several places where the disc froze and/or skipped when viewing. Then I read somewhere about checking out the AnyDVD ripper from the website. Again a lot of what people on this forum write is Greek to me, but I cannot find the ripper on the website – and do not see that it is included in the description of any of the products.
So I guess my questions are – is the AnyDVD ripper a stand alone program to purchase or download, and might it help my problem?
Is there a way or a product that could help “fix” the bad areas of the source disc since it plays perfectly?
I only started this to save my volunteer group money on all of these educational materials and now I am spending every non-working moment for the past two weeks trying to finish it up and am becoming quite frustrated. I know my ignorance is part of the problem, but I don’t intend to continue doing this and didn’t want to spend tooooo much time on it.
Thanks for any advice anyone can offer
