    What you using as a media player, Ally ? First thoughts are that something has updated and with that, removed the ability to play "copied" disks ?

    Yep now it asks you to purchase the sonic codec to play them had the same problem, Use VLC player it's Freeware and plays absolutely everything as well as being able to stream across your home network it :rocks

    I would just like to re-post a link Boyce made me aware of recently VideoHelp.com

    There is more info regarding DVDs etc on that site than you will ever need to know and it is organised very nicely.
