Before I ask for help with this, I want to make sure it's "legal" to do this. It's my understanding that it's ok to make one copy of a DVD that you own - for backup purposes, is that correct?
The kids purchased some Disney DVDs for our Grandaughter, and we want to make a copy of each.
I'm using DVD Shrink on an XP home machine, which I have done before. It has always been that if a movie won't copy I get the cyclic redundancy check error message - that ends that. An odd thing that occured when I tried to copy the Disney movies today, is that they will copy to the computer just fine and burn to DVD, but they won't play. I've tried them on both the DVD players and computers here to no avail. I don't know if this is relevant, but when I put the disc in my Linux machine and did "check disc" it said - no checksum file on disc.
I know DVD Shrink is probably not very up to date, but I just don't understand why it would copy and burn the DVD which doesn't play - could it be something new on the DVDs that cause extra work for nothing that discourages piracy?
