Not only am I new to this forum, but new to burning as well. I apologise if this questions are answered elsewhere. I tried to find them first, but had no luck.
I am attempting to back-up my DVD collection, and recently purchased a Sony Dual Layer DVD burner, and purchased Memorex DL disks. I am using DVD Decrypter V 18.104.22.168 to rip the source DVDs (which are no doubt copywright protected), and am using Nero Recode 2 to burn the DVD back to the disk. I have copied 7 DVDs so far. On two of them I had a problem that I have seen mentioned here. Halfway through the film the disk just stops playing. The other 5, however, copied fine.
However, I do have a second problem. When I try to play the finished DVD copy on certain players, it doesn't recognise the disk. Any non-recordable DVD player plays them fine. However, I have tried the finished copies on two different recordable DVD players, and neither of them will load the disk at all. These players are the Sony RDR-VX515 and the Coby DVD-R1100. Does anybody know why this is, and if there is anything I can do to create backups that will play on these players?
Any help or advice would be appreciated. This is a fantastic forum, and I am glad I found it. Thanks.
