Some DVD Backups wont play properly!!!

  Nirvanaman 10:07 29 May 2003

Hi all,
I am in the process of backing up my DVD collection.I am using Nero to make the backups.When I play them back in my standalone DVD player they are freeze-framing and will not play any further.Some freeze-frame 10 mins from the end of the film,others halfway through and some do it 10 mins into the film.
I have an NEC DVD+R/W Writer & running WIN XP Pro.
I have had a lot of successful backups but it is puzzling why some work & some don't.My original discs are in perfect condition,no scratches or dust on them.
Any help appreciated.

The ones that don't work are most likely protected with Macrovision or some other copy protection system which, as you would expect, is designed to stop you copying them.

Bear in mind as well a commercial DVD is double layer and is 9.4 GB. A writable or recordable DVD is 4.7GB - half the capacity.
