I started making CD's about 4 years ago and I have gotten quite proficient at it including some remastering of the tracks before burning with 3 different programs. I have just started out dealing with DVDs. I downloaded a copy of dvdxcopy platinum and used that for a while, then I bought a 16x dual layer drive(Toshiba) which I got Nero with. Then I looked for a new program , and I found dvd43, which worked for a while, till it came across DVDs by Sony and had the bad sectors, then I bought 1click dvd copy, still had the bad sectors problem, them I found dvd decrypter and that worked great, but had to put the movie to file on hd first, (very complex and technical program, with numerous file formats still learning the nuances), it worked with any dvd i tried, it just took time and energy to figure out and use and clean up afterward. If anyone has a help file on dvd decrypter I would love it
I used decrypter with Nero 'create dvd' and it worked fine. Then I went on a quest to find a simpler one and I read about anydvd, so I uninstalled dvd43 and then I downloaded the free trial od anydvd and I tried it on Kung fu hustle ( a Sony protected disc). I tried it 3 times with 1click DVD copy and it kept saying corrupted and wouldn't burn, and two times using Nero and that wouldn't work either, so I went back to using DVD decrypter and Nero and it worked fine the first time, only I had to delete the 7 plus g video file, then shred, then release all Norton protected files then wash and bleach free space on that drive, then defrag...to much effort and time.
Since all previous attempts at code breaking programs have been shut down and and programming confiscated seems to have led companies like Sony to recreate security around those previous programs very quickly.
I was upset when anydvd didn't do as it should have and that their help menu is kinda lacking...
any thoughts ? I'm open to learning
