Discs 1 - 7 are the same as far as protection is concerned. Whole disc backup worked fine with AnyDVD 126.96.36.199 and DVDShrink, I have only backed up disc 1 so far. I don't expect any problems with the rest. Summary for drive G: (AnyDVD 188.8.131.52) TSSTCORP CD/DVDW SH-S162L TS08 0222 MULT Drive (Hardware) Region: 1 Media is a DVD.
