    I've just bought a new PC and it came with a DVD writer bundled. After a bit of a slow start getting it to work, I've now backed up my first DVD music disc just to see if I could get it to work.
    To my surprise the finished result is actually a better more rewarding experience than the original I own. I can now actually listen to MY dvds that I have bought:-
    1) Without having to turn on the telly they just play like regular CDs
    2) Without having to sit through some crappy Warner music intro sequence.
    3) Without having to navigate through a bunch of screens to get to the music.

    Isn't it a bit sad when a copy actually gives you a better experience than the original.
    Enjoying music is all about setting the mood and nothing spoils it like having to switch on the telly and be forced to watch some stupid company logo then having to navigate through a bunch of menus before I get to hear the music. :suicide:

    I don't get ya :confused:

    How can it give you a 'better experience'?

    Are you talking about a music DVDV or DVDA?

    If it's just the music you want (and not the visuals) then why not just by the CD version of it (chances are there will be a CD or similar) and play than on your PC.

    A music DVD is about the visual side of it as well as the music.

    I happen to like the 5.1 and 96Khz options you get with DVD.
    Also it IS nice to have the visuals as you say, but when I just want to listen to the music thats ALL I want to do. NOT wade through endless menus and company trailers.
    THAT is why it is a better experience.
    ie place disk into DVD player, music starts immediately with no messing around.

    I agree with Neil. One of the problems with DVD-A is having to fart around with menus and settings. For instance, some disks boot either into DVD-A or DVD but you can't access both tracks, so changing disks means messing about with settings. Why can't all disks be mastered with all options available regardless of whether you have a DVD-A player or not? :lease:

    i think some people are confusing the benefits and features of Music DVD-V and Audio only DVD-A.

    None of the DVD-A's i own have any company logo, or intro screens of anything. And i didn't think it was yet possible to copy DVD-A?

    You get the DD, DTS or LPCM tracks when you "back-up" a DVD-A disc, NOT the DVD-A track

    When you place the DVDA on the tray, press CLOSE for the menu or press PLAY to listen to the music.

    EDIT: Well that's what it said on the box - turns out to be untrue.
