• AnyStream is having some DRM issues currently, download with some streaming providers (Netflix) might not always be available in HD.
    Situations like this will always happen with AnyStream: streaming providers are continuously improving their countermeasures while we try to catch up, it's an ongoing cat-and-mouse game. Please be patient and don't flood our support or forum with requests, we are working on it 24/7 to get it resolved - but it will take a few days. Thank you.

Sorry if this is a really, really basic question, but . . .

I have the trial copy of AnyDVD and CloneDVD2. I have only one DVD drive. Reading thru a CDFreaks guide on AnyDVD, I've been: (1) inserting the original DVD into the DVD drive; (2) using AD to rip the original DVD to my hard drive; (3) when AD is finished, I remove the original DVD from the DVD drive; (4) insert blank DVD media into the DVD drive; (5) open CD2; (6) find the Video_TS file on my hardrive; (7) make selections in CD2; (8) burn back-up to blank DVD using CD2.

This works great, btw!!:bowdown:

But, reading your "Best Way" sticky, I'm probably taking some extra steps I don't need to (i.e., ripping to the hard drive). I guess I've been under the impression that to do what is described in your sticky at #1 and #2(especially #2), you'd need two separate DVD drives - one for the original DVD (e.g. E: drive); one for the blank DVD media (e.g. F: drive) - so that you're "reading" the original in E: sending the info through CD2 onto F: to write the DVE. It appears my "assumption" is incorrect. I *can* use the same drive for both the original DVD and the blank DVD media without ripping to my hard drive first, is that correct??? If so, it's just not clear - to me at least - how/where/when this is done.

So, basic (stupid) question time, at what point in the AD or CD2 process would I eject the original DVD from my DVD drive and insert the blank DVD media to which I want to copy??

It should prompted you to insert a blank if I'm right been forever since I have used just one drive.

Yes

Charlie is correct. CD2 will automatically eject the original disc and prompt you to insert a blank.
 
Webslinger & Charlie:

Thank you.

Again, AnyDVD and DVDClone2 rock!
