You may recall from the old forum…gmacs, gary and I experimenting with DL burning. While the express and gold copies yielded good results, insofar as the playback quality, the LB was always an issue. AnyDVD, in combo with DVDDecrypter, yielded absolutely flawless bkups, ie., the LB issue was non-existent. This was also true when using the Img burn utility. It’s true that DVDD is defunct re: updates (as I understand it, Lightning UK had to give up rights to DVDD as part of his “settlement”). Img, on the other hand, will continue to be improved upon by LUK. However, for right now, both DVDD and Img work great.
If you need any pointers re: configuring DVDD for the rip, give me a holler.
