Is it supposed to take a very long time? I have a movie that skips since I bought it, and thought I would make a new one (backup) with this so it wouldn't skip. I get a "read errors" message and I told it to ignore them. I admit I don't know what I am doing; but I am trying. So this info is being saved on my hard drive, I hope to eventually make it into a DVD... Thank you! We love your programs!
