I have seen this 'on the fly' What does it mean? I kown it has to be easy and i have read in the help programes and looked here can't Find it. Thanks Fivestones:doh:
I think that hits the nail firmly on the head.wikipedia said:On-the-fly is also a term used for copying a source medium (i.e. CD-ROM or DVD) to a target medium (i.e. CD-R) directly, without first saving the source on an intermediate medium (i.e. a harddisk).
We almost have identical drives. The Sony one is exactly the same, and the Philips one is the same except for the last four numbers, wow. There is a firmware upgrade available for the Sony drive.I think here is my Drives is this right and are they any good?
SONY DVD-ROM DDU1615 FDS1 NOV28 ,2004
PHILIPS DVD+-RW DVD8631 CD21 MY0X90197015952504OR

Very bad idea to rip and burn a DVD movie "on the fly" (DVD original directly burned to DVD blank media, bypassing the HDD). It's iffy even if the original is in pristine condition ... Even if you had a 10Mb buffer on your burner. You will get errors and make coasters much of the time.
You are making backups with software that is designed to make backups. You are not duplicating disks. There is a timing factor to be considered here. Rip to your HDD first ... then burn.
Using the term "decrypting on the fly" (as AnyDVD does) is using the expression "on the fly" for a different reason in a different context.
