I’m a relative beginner at backing up my DVD collection, but I did attempt to read as much as possible before beginning. I’m using the latest version of DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink to create my backps. I’m using Taiyo Yuden and Verbatim DataLifePlus as my media. Despite this,according to my quality test my discs are rather poor. I cannot get a quality above 90, and my TOTAL PI errors seems extremely high. I’ve seen many screenshots of people with average PI errors averaging 20-40, but I cannot seem to get below 70. Please see below.
PLEASE-Any suggestions on increasing my burn quality would be greatly appreciated. I’m beginning to wonder if it is even worthwhile to backup my movie collection on DVDs. The rot rate of optical media seems to be within a few years, so I’m starting to think maybe its better to just make DivX or Xvid compressed files and keep them on a hard disk. Either that, or RAR the actual ISOs and leave them on a hard drive.
