Hello all, I'm new here. I've had successful burns with DVDX, and it appeared to go fine with xpress too... But when I tried to playback on Toshiba it stuck on the opening Warning screen. I haven't had this problem with any other burns played on the Toshib and I am using identical media (Sony DVD+R). Xpress burn seemed successful, finished uneventfully. When upgrading xpress I did uninstall the 2.0... could that be the problem? TIA

dvd x copy xpress v2.0.1 looks good but does not copy the whole of the film. I copied the film and half is missing emailed 321 automated answer guess ive been duped eh. grateful for any sudjestions

88.5.2003 11:40

You have not been "duped". Visit the link I mentioned above. It's FREE. Xpress does do the whole movie. I know. I'm watching 'Fellowship Of The Ring' as I type this. -- Me --

Thanks for the link. I did look there but found no answer related directly to this problem. I can't post there since it is not 48 hrs. since I registered with AfterDawn! Oh well, first time I wished someone else had a problem too. Thanks

i tried copying paul mccartney back in the usa and pearl harbour both did not copy and i call the states (im in the UK) and the said yes they have problems !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

UpLate -- that's very odd. I myself have never been actually 'stuck' at the 321 disclaimer screen, but others have mentioned a similar problem. I doubt there's anything wrong with your Toshiba. What one fellow did was, while in the 321 screen, press the >> next button on the remote. (For next chapter). He was able to get right Out of the 321 screen that way, and the movie started playback. (I bet your burned disc has a perfectly good, playable movie on it). Uninstalling 2.0 before installing 2.1 shouldn't hurt a thing. (That's what I did too). Technically, it isn't (apparently) necessary to do that according to the 321 email I got (while on their download page it say TO uninstall any earlier version). For safety's sake I always get rid of earlier versions first, even to the point of deleting the 321Studios folder in the c:Programs folder. When your 48 hours are up, be sure to ask 321_Q/A (Jeff) about the sticking problem. There's a better than 90% chance he'll reply. Barrie, not all dvds will be successfully copied at this point. Others in the forum link mentioned above are having problems with the McCartney disc as well. Episodic discs (tv shows) are particularly problematic, but XPress is primarily designed for Movie-Only backups at this time. Much later, a Platinum version will be addressing many of the issues that we are now having. For myself, I have recently made gorgeous one-disc backups of 'A Hard Day's Night', 'Monsters, Inc.', 'Back To The Future' Parts 1, 2, and 3, and 'Fellowship Of The Rings', extended version. Try the official forum guys, and don't hesitate to ask Jeff (321_Q/A) for help -- that's what he's there for. Good Luck !! -- Klingy --

Thanks Klingy but what about Pearl Harbour thats a movie ? just dissapointed the 2 disks i did didnt work yes it made a graet copy oh monsters inc but hey i'll stay with it cos i paid for it lol

138.5.2003 13:43

tried the link but quaranteed for 48 hours lol

148.5.2003 13:45

Thanks for the reply Klingy. Yes, I know I have a good movie on that disc... I can play it on the PC and it looks great. I tried pressing fast forward, skip, etc on the toshiba. Nothing worked... wouldn't even open/close (disc was engaged), I finally had to UNPLUG the Toshiba and when I plugged it back in, quickly I pressed open to get the disk out. That was at 4am. Went to sleep for a while and tried again this morning...nothing yet. It will work I am sure, just have to figure it out. Thanks for your help, I wait to see if someone else posts on the other board or else I will when my wait time is up. DVDx is Great Product and express is making it better... just gotta work with it abit and it'll be fine.

Well, the trouble as I see it, is that there are approximately six million ways to author a dvd menu, and XPress is only one piece of software. It has to try to cope will every buggy menu ever made including ones that contain errors. (Errors?) Yep. One of the Monty Python Flying Circus (episodic) discs even has the word "Fixed" in it's volume disc label!!! I bet many of these discs have 'patched fixes' and include both the errant *and* corrected title sets still on the same disc. (The menu just bypasses the errant vob sets, which in the case of the Monty Python disc, they didn't even bother to remove). This doesn't answer why your Pearl Harbour disc won't back up properly, but 321 keeps a healthy supply of disc titles on hand, and they may have an answer for that particular movie. -- Mike --

Seriously, DVDXCopy support issues aren't supposed to come here. Go to the DVDXCopy forums and post your questions there, ok?

I just downloaded DVDXCopy XPress 2.0.1. Is it normal for the software to ask me to select a burner every time I bootup?

188.5.2003 23:50

chritsu: As said _one line earlier_, post the DVDXCopy support questions to DVDXCopy forums at not here.
