I got this quote from a faq about burning commercial dvds.

"Until February 2004, 321 Studios' hugely popular line of DVD-copying products, including DVD X Copy, DVD X Copy Xpress, and DVD Copy Plus, gave consumers the power to make backup copies of DVDs--even those with copy protection."

I want to buy a dvd burner to back up those lousy and cheap dvds they give us. Does anyone have a copy of this??? Im not going to spend money for a headach either. Is there a away to get movies on one disk that play on most dvd players...one that is easy to do??? Let me know. Im gettin burner tomorrw. Thanks.

ps as long as they work...im willing to do a little tweaking if need be.

Look around at different DVD burners. Most of them come with a CD of recommended software. See what program they are offering. It will usually be very compatible with your burner too as it is sold alongside. The new ones I've seen come with programs that you register and can update but they are only good for a year.

If you buy an OEM burner (from someone who builds computers) you probably won't get the disk, unless you ask for it and maybe not even then. If you buy a retail burner (from stores like Tiger Direct, Best buy or whatever) It will come in a box with the software.

Actually...I came here first because most freakin dvd burners at best buy neglected to mention wether or not you could back up movies. the specs were totaly unclear...and then on top of that best buy slapped a huge sticker on the back of the box on top of most specs anyway. the sticker was the price tag. its rediculous that the movie industry wants to restrict this. im sick and tired of buying a dvd and having it get scratched and thats it...go buy it again. forget that. I guess ill go to store today and shop around.

If anyone else has backing up dvds mastered....help would be appreciated.

BTW That link is the same link to a circle of links of junk. There are no more downloads for it. Try it yourself...if your successful DL it and let me know so we can setup some way to exchange it.

Just thought I'd update on my progress. First...thanks all. Every bit helped. I ended up having a friend install the drive. I got a sony double layer DVD/CD RW drive DRU-720A. Im not sure why the sites wern't workin for me...admittedly baked and didnt try right clik save target as w/ IE or mozilla!
Usually left clik was suffice to initiat dling. Good news to. Everything works. Ill never have to worry about losing an entire simpsons season. I bought all so far legit...but first season is MIA. Now all ill be usin is backups anyway...storing origianals. The drive cost me 100 bucks. Not to bad. Disks are cheap...except for the DL ones...those are still expensice and costly. 8.5 gigs on each disk possible though. Thanks a lot.
