Nero V6 OEM software & Problem with DVD copy

  Giggle n' Bits 20:18 03 Oct 2004

ok, I am a bit confused here but when copying a DVD Film it gives the error "copy write protection" unable to continue etc.

The DVD Wrtr is a x4 Lite-On +/- drive. It did come with Sonic DVD but I got a nero as I prefer it to be better.

Is it the case I need to do the Nero updates for this software or am I doing something badly wrong.

I got a bit lost at nero site. Something about the DVD being bigger than a blank DVD-R CD Lost & Help please.

The DVD is Copyright protected and Nero will not burn because of that.

What films can you copy for your own use, say if you have a in car DVD player.

Is there a software or a way to copy/burn a DVD to DVD ? seems a bit daft having a DVD wrtr if it won't burn DVD's.

You will need spomething like DVD Shrink. click here

This will allow you to back up your DVD's in case the original gets damaged.

Use this program to back up DVDs, if they get damaged in the car you still have the original.

What I want to do is copy one of my purchased DVD Films and put it onto a Blank DVD Disk.

So looking at the DVD Shrink software why carn't the Nero so it ? Is it because of the DVD film original is copy protected or the film is bigger than a Blank DVD Disk or I am using the wrong copy Software?.

How do does the DVD shrink software work ? will read about it see if I can work it out but will call back.

a page with about 14 different downloads and something called DVD Copy. really confused about which and where to download.

click here Download the New version which is Ver 3.2. DVD Shrink will back up any DVD.

You have a choice of what you want to put on the DVD eg leave off foreign languages
I have put a 6.9GB film onto a 4.7GB DVD. DVD shrink does as it says it shrinks the film to fit.

All the links are for the same version.

It takes about 50 minutes to back-up a film.
