DVD X Rescue - Question for the masses

Get AnyDVD HD and copy any DVD or Blu-ray disc with ease!

Here's my problem/question for the experts. PROBLEM: when backing up one of my movies using DVD X Copy, I'm getting both hard and soft read errors (I've tried everything including using different media and disabling applications on 321 studios blacklist.)The soft errors cause pixel problems in the movie, while the hard errors give me an "unable to read disc" message while watching the movie, hence a shutdown.
However, when I run the newly burned disc through DVD X Rescue the movie comes out fine (great product by the way.)The problem is I'm having to burn the movie once in DVD X Copy using a DVD-RW then running it through DVD X Rescue and making a second burn. You see my problem? Not to mention the time it takes, but I'm having to burn the movie twice in order to get the desired finished product.
Now, for my QUESTION: Since DVD X Rescue will copy, read and write from the original movie disc, is it possible to skip the process of sending it through DVD X Copy??? The only reason I can think of off the top of my head as to why it wouldn't work would be that DVD X Rescue doesn't handle compression issues.
Thanks for your help and input!!

There is no need to run it through XCopy first.

Now your problems with XCopy ... I assume your using Platinum, right? Which version?

Also what brand of media are you using and what speed is the media?
Dell 8250, Pentium 4 2.80GHz
1.5 GB RDRAM, 450GB HD
NEC 2510A, Sony DDU-1612 DVD-ROM
XP Pro, ATI All-In-Wonder 9000 Pro

Yes, I am using Platinum. But if I just run it through DVD X Rescue, it starts to read the entire disc (eg. 6.5 MB) instead of the 4.3 MB compressed version after running it through DVD X Copy. It won't fit on one disc if I just run it through DVD X Copy and the file is larger than what the disc holds, will it?

I am using DVD X Copy Platinum 4.0.3.8, and using DVD-R discs that I bought in bulk. I believe the brand name is "Legacy."

Dear flip218 (or any marvelous Mod for that matter)

When does the actual “rescue” take place during the process? Are the errors “fixed” while X Rescue is copying the files…reading the files…or as the files are being burned onto a disc?
I’m thinking that if X Rescue “fixes” the file errors during the copy or read process, I can save those “fixed VTS files” to a folder, open them in DVDShrink, compress them, then burn them to a disc using Nero. However, if X Rescue fixes the file errors as it is writing them to a disc, I won’t be able to do it this way because the files aren’t compressed, and won’t fit on a 4.7 GB disc. X Rescue does not have the ability to compress files, does it? That would make my life a whole lot easier, I’l tell ya. Any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx.

Yowza1,

Sorry can't tell you exactly how Rescue works. But Rescue will compress. And if you don't burn the file, it will be in the temp folder ... just locate it and copy the file to another folder.
