DVDXcopy and RecordNow DX

I was using DVDxcopy and record now DX software on a xp pro system.
It is a viao machine and I had to do a system reinstall from the cd’s that came with it.
Now it seem that dvdxcopy works fine but Record Now DX will read the dvd right to the end and then give me an error that tells me that the dvd my be scratched or it may have finger prints on it. I know this error is telling me something else but I just don’t get it.
Please help

Did you try alternate DVDs? Could bad a bad disc, or worse, bad drive.

Hmmm....maybe take mcp_jon's advice and check out nero; at the least you can install the demo version and see if that will work better for you. I used Record Now once... I wouldn't trade my Nero for anything though. WAY worth the price...probably the best suite on the market. The DVD and video tools included in the Nero Vision Express suite (which comes with Nero 6 Ultra Edition) are far superior to DVDx Copy. Don't feel too bad, though; the DVDxcopy guys got my money too.

your problem is mostlikly not in the software... the error ur getting is do to the fact that the dvds ur trying to copy are copy protected so they would get an error at the end.  You can use this software in the background to make a succesful copy http://www.slysoft.com/en/anydvd.html  Just make sure ur making legit backups :-)

Sometimes you get similar errors if you don't have enough empty diskspace in your temp drive. A commercial DVD usually uses up more than 5GB, and you need at least the equivalent empty space on your disk. You'll need another, same amount of free space to save the data, making +10GB in all. This space should be contiguos, ie not fragmented, so do a defrag af all your partitions before authoring a DVD.
