      Problem saving recording from DVD onto PC

      Hi all

      I've been busy copying some of my old recordings off Sky+ to DVD lately and once I had a stack of DVDs I decided to save them onto my PC so I can re-burn them in the future when the DVD goes crappy (as they do over time).

      I tried to do this using DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink and Handbrake but they all got to about 85-90% then just hung there. Even the simpler method of a cut'n'paste of the folders on my DVD showed they all copied well until it got to the last section - that's where they ALL stopped. Not much use having a programme if you never get to see the end is it!

      Has SKY put in some code to stop you transferring your copies from DVDs onto PCs? I have no intention of doing any P2P of anything I've got, I just want to save what I've got for the future.

      Anyone else had this problem? Got a solution?

      Cheers

      Buddy Boy

      Did you try taking an image of the DVD? Most burning programs allow you to create images of CD/DVDs. You can even play them back directly using a virtual DVD player, or burn the image to another disk.
