I am a simpleton who doesn’t know much about… well… anything. So most of what I’m about to say is probably stupid on some level or other, but I’ve searched the forum with lots of different keywords and I’m still stumped so I’m hoping someone will take pity on me and help me out.
I use dvd-decrypter in file mode to rip to my hard drive, and nero recode to actually burn my personal backups. For years these two programs, used in this tandem, have worked perfectly.
Then, about a month and a half ago, some hidden toggle switch inside one of the big “options” menus must’ve gotten switched, because now every personal backup I make, when I go to play it in my DVD player, the player chokes right at the dual-layer break and goes to a blue screen (it’s a Sony DVD player, which has never had trouble playing my personal backups before).
Any thoughts? I’d prefer not to have to make big, sweeping changes to the rig the way it is – precisely because I already “know” that this configuration “works,” so I’d prefer not to field a lot of “You need to get this terrific new program” replies, if it can be avoided. Thanks in advance.
