Off topic question... DVD X COPY

6 posts in this topic

Thought I would ask here since , well a bunch of us are computer geeks and what better group to ask...

Lost (another) DVD to scratches (kids) and am looking at buying DVD X COPY GOLD...

I can backup some older DVDS but not new ones with my current software...

Does DVD X COPY GOLD really backup all DVDS bit for bit ????

Thanks for being patient with off topic question...

Wally,

If you are talking video dvds, they use a special encryption that makes it real difficult to copy them. There is some special software called DeCSS out there that along with your dvd xcopy software will allow you to copy video dvds.

I have not spent the time to really sort all of that dump out and make it work. I did manage to decrypt it to my hard drive, but then you need an application to put it all back together in a playable format. They did a pretty good job making it hard to copyright videos. It is possible but just need to spend some time figuring out all the talk to get it done.

Good luck smile.gif

Wally,

Yep it works Generally you need to see if your dvd's are standard and at 4.5gb or smaller. Then they would fit on 1blank DVD-+r or if they are larger DVD X Copy will rip it to 2 DVD-+R discs. Generally the one thing I disliked about the program was that it put a warning at the beginning of each disc. A better and cheaper program from what I've heard is DVD2One. But before using it you will need to Rip the DVD to your HD. Which can be easily done with a FreeWare program called DVD-Decryptor. Hope this helps.

I should also mention that with DVD2One, as the name states it makes any DVD fit on 1 blank DVD. By downsampling the Video. And it is still very good quality.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
