I just bought an Optiarc AD-5170 A. I just threw away a Plexstar 716A. The Plexstar lasted only about a year and a half with minimal use. What a POS. I bought it thinking it was a great drive. Oh well.
I bought some cheap NX2 dual layer media from Circuit City today to try out my new burner. I bought the DVD "Cars" and wanted to copy it for my wifes grandkids. I used DVDFAB to rip and Nero Recode to burn. I chose Recode intire DVD to DVD, imported ripped files and changed to DVD-9. Burned the movie. I lost the main menu that had all the extras I was trying to get for the kids. The movie played but with no main menu.
I used to use ImgBurn to make ISO files to attach to Daemon to run DVD2ONE. I only did this because DVDDecrypter had to die and I couldn't rip ISO images directly from the media.
To make a long story short I remembered this software and that I could create ISO images so I downloaded it and followed the great guides on this forum and burnt a great disc with all the goodies. The kids are happy and so am I.
