    I am using dvd-cloner II v2.50 to make backup copies of some of my dvds (for travelling purposes) , I copy to Hard Disc first then use nero Burning Rom v6.6.0.8 to write to dvd which then lets me play the dvd in any of my dvd players.
    I am getting a problem with some films that are to big to compress to one dvd and i have to use the split-disc option in dvd-cloner, this works fine to hard disc but when i use nero to write each of the discs i get a 'DVD_Video files compliance error', which i ignore and continue with the write, but the discs are then unplayable in my dvd player.

    Has anyone else had this problem, or has any advice of how i can get round this.

    Use DVD Shrink to put the film onto your hard drive at an optomised level so it fits onto a 4.7 Gig disc

    Thanks for the reply, i have downloaded dvd dhrink, and managed to copy one of my films to my hard disc, and then used nero to write the iso off to dvd, all looks fine, i will try and play it through my dvd player tonight.
    Quick question - in the backup option what is the best option smooth, sharp etc ?

    To be honest I just leave shrink to it's defaults and make sure "advanced analysis" is ticked. I have not done any comparisons on the smooth or sharp etc.

    If you want the best quality just back-up the movie only (re-author).
    Have a look on the web there are loads of decent guides available

    The above site is very good.
