    I would like to know if anybody can tell me how to make backups of my moives and still get the title screen and extras screens.I would be grateful if the person that response to my post could tell like a step by step walk throught.I have tried going in to anydvd and adjusting this way first I click on the the video dvd box just below the status box then I click the box to the right with the jump directly to title menu,I set it up to do that and still starts moive right away.I 've also checked anydvd many times and it is set to jump to the title screen but as I said before it does not work.

    "Remove annoying adverts and trailers" doesn't work for all movies. Right click that option in Anydvd and read what it says. One way to check if that feature will work is to watch the original disc on your system first with that feature enabled in Anydvd. If the feature doesn't work, it won't work on your backup either.

    Keep in mind Anydvd doesn't burn, and what you want has more to do with whatever program you're using to edit and burn than Anydvd.

    If you want step by step instructions, here they are:

    Code:
    1. Visit your burner's website, and update your burner's firmware if possible.

    2. Use good quality blank media. Try Verbatim, Maxell Broadcast Quality, Maxell Plus series, Taiyo Yuden, etc (not Memorex, not generic Maxell, not Princo, not TDK from Costco, not Fuji, not Ritek). If you're going to make a double layer backup use Verbatim + R DL media (made in Singapore); I find most burners will burn this stuff well at 4x (to be safe); other burners can burn this stuff at 10x with
    no problems. Get to know your burner.

    3. For "+R, +RW, +R DL" blank media, change the booktype of the blank media you're using to "dvd-rom", if your burner supports bitsetting changes. This step improves the chances of playability in/compatibility with (standalone, mostly) dvd players. The best way to do this is through the software that came with your burner (if possible).
    
    Otherwise, use Nero cd-dvd speed to do this if you have to: [url]http://www.cdspeed2000.com/[/url]
    This is a free program. (Insert the blank media in your burner. Select your burner in the drop down box at the top of the screen. Click "Extra", then "Bitsetting". Make the change to "dvd-rom" and click "set".)
    
    If Nero cd-dvd speed doesn't work for you (options are greyed out), do this:
    
    a) Download and install imgburn:
    [url]http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download[/url]
    This is also a free program
    b) Insert your blank media in your burner.
    c) Select your burner in the "Destination" drop down box.
    d) Click "Tools"-->"Drive"-->"Change Booktype"
    e) Choose your burner type
    f) Under "Change For:", select what you're using
    g) If your current setting is "dvd-rom", leave everything alone and exit Imgburn and ignore step "h)"
    h) Under "New setting", select "dvd-rom". Click "Change" and then "Ok". Exit Imgburn
    
    Some drives lose their settings each time you eject, so you might have to do this each and every time before you burn.
    
    [b]You can skip this step if your burner defaults booktype to "dvd-rom" automatically with the various +R types of blank media.
    You can also skip this step if you're using dvd-r, dvd-rw, or dvd-r dl[/b]
    
    4. Have the latest version of Anydvd running on your toolbar (try the free 21 day trial if you don't own it). visit [url]http://www.slysoft.com/download.html[/url] 
    
    5. Stick the original disc in your optical reader.
    
    6. Ensure you're using the latest version of Clonedvd2 (try the free 21 day trial if you don't own it). Visit [url]http://www.slysoft.com/download.html[/url]
    
    7. Run Clonedvd2, [b]and select "Clone DvD" from Clonedvd2's startup menu--if you want a full disc backup[/b]. Select "Copy DVD Titles" if you want a main movie backup only without all the extras.
    
    8 . Select your optical reader/source drive in "dvd video files" (if need be, click the circular arrow buttons to the right of "DVD video files". Choose the appropriate optical reader/drive that contains the original movie disc). 
    
    9. Choose the titles you want to backup. If you selected "Copy DVD Titles" in step 7, the main movie will already be selected for you. If you chose ""Clone DvD", everything will be selected, and you will need to choose what you want to remove (if you want to keep everything, then leave everything checked).
    
    10. If you want to split the movie over two single layer blanks, use the scissor icon towards the bottom of the screen and select the beginning and end chapters that you want to burn. This feature is pretty easy to figure out. Clonedvd2, unlike Shrink and Recode can retain the original menus while splitting across two single layer discs. Just ensure the quality bar is showing 100% if you do want to split across two discs.
    
    11. [b]In the upper right, click "preserve menus" if you want to backup the (title) menus on the source dvd.[/b]
    
    12. Near the quality bar (towards the bottom), select "dvd-5" if you want to compress to a normal single layer disc (4.7 GB). Select "dvd+/-r dl" if you don't want to compress and are using Verbatim +R DL media (for example); this selection is for double or dual layer blank media (8.5 GB).
    
    13. Click next
    
    14. Select the audio and subtitles you want to backup. visit [url]http://forum.slysoft.com/showpost.php?p=2690&postcount=4[/url]
    
    15. Click next
    
    16. Select "dvd writer" for the output method
    
    17. Below that, select the appropriate burner. Ensure you have an appropriate burn speed selected on this screen. You need not burn at 16x or higher unless you absolutely want to (this often causes burn quality issues, especially with poor quality media). Sometimes burning at 12x is better than burning at 16x (I do not recommend burning at 16x or higher). Sometimes burning at 8x or 4x is best. Get to know your burner.
    
    18. Click "Go"

    The following is my preferred method of backing up my dvd-videos (I also usually have Anydvd set to "jump directly to title menu"--but that feature in Anydvd may not work properly with all discs). I actually don't use Clonedvd2 very often.



    (I am not advocating the exclusive sale of Verbatim +R DL discs; however, they are probably the best DL discs generally available)

    Using this method, you do not need to waste time using several different programs or having to rip first (and then switching to imgburn to burn)--and you get a backup that is unmarred by compressed, lossy video quality (nor do you have to waste time transcoding or encoding).

    Code:
    
    Follow these steps:
    
    1. Update your burner's firmware if possible. Visit your burner's website to check for firmware upgrades.
    If you don't know how to go about doing this, visit [url]http://forum.slysoft.com/showpost.php?p=12794&postcount=10[/url]
    
    2. Use Verbatim +R DL discs (ensure they are made in Singapore); if you try other types of DL media you may run the risk of getting bad quality burns (I said "may" not "will").
    
    3. Ensure you're using the latest versions of Anydvd and Clonecd (try the 21 day free trial):
    [url]http://www.slysoft.com/download.html[/url]
    
     4. Change the booktype of the +R DL media to "dvd-rom". This step improves the chances of playability in/compatibility with (standalone, mostly) dvd players. The best way to do this is through the software that came with your burner (if possible).
    
    Otherwise, use Nero cd-dvd speed to do this if you have to: [url]http://www.cdspeed2000.com/[/url]
    This is a free program. (Insert the blank media in your burner. Select your burner in the drop down box at the top of the screen. Click "Extra", then "Bitsetting". Make the change to "dvd-rom" and click "set".)
    
    If Nero cd-dvd speed doesn't work for you (options are greyed out), do this:
    
    a) Download and install imgburn:
    [url]http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download[/url]
    This is also a free program
    b) Insert your blank media in your burner.
    c) Select your burner in the "Destination" drop down box.
    d) Click "Tools"-->"Drive"-->"Change Booktype"
    e) Choose your burner
    f) Under "Change For:", select what you're using
    g) If your current setting is "dvd-rom", leave everything alone and exit Imgburn and ignore step "h)"
    h) Under "New setting", select "dvd-rom". Click "Change" and then "Ok". Exit Imgburn
    
    Some drives lose their settings each time you eject or possibly reboot, so you might have to do this each and every time before you burn.
    [b]You can skip this step if your burner defaults booktype to "dvd-rom" automatically with the various +R types of blank media.[/b]
    
    5. Use Clonecd (not Clonedvd2) to retain to original layer break position. Clonedvd2 cannot do this (nor can Shrink, Recode, and other transcoder based applications). [b]And you can only retain the original layer break position when using +R DL blank discs.[/b]
    
    6. With Anydvd running in the background, open Clonecd and choose "copy cd" (two discs icon). Select your reader. Click Next. DVD should be the only option. Click Next. I generally do not recommend "copy on the fly" unless you know what you're doing. Click Next. Choose Your Burner. Click Next. Select an appropriate burn speed. Generally, a 4x write speed works well with Verbatim +R DL media that is advertised at 2.4x (burning at 4x generally produces very nice pi/po and jitter scans). But some burners are fine burning this stuff at 6x (and possibly higher). Get to know your burner. Burn speeds in Clonecd will be dependent on your drive and your firmware.
