Hey all, I just bought me a NEC 3540A thanks to reading the reviews on cdfreaks, great site by the way. I figured copy accuracy was paramount and it swayed my decision from getting a BENQ or LG even though those were rated good as well. I have read some points on DVD- and DVD+ format and chose to go with the DVD+ format. That being said, I’m looking to copy some DVD movies for backup purposes. I have read some guides and it looks like to do a 1:1 copy I need a ‘dual layer’ disc with a dvd decrypter of some sort. Once I have the information extracted from DVD with the decryptor, then I can use practically any program to burn the disc right? I know there are programs that will do all of that in one, but what would you guys recommend? I was thinking of getting Clone DVD. Any opinions on that software?
On a second note, I have read that Taiyo Yuden are probably the best brand DVD recordable to get. So in determining TY, I look on the package and if it says ‘made in Japan’ then it is most likely TY right?
