I would use internal DVD R/RW for copy's of dvd's
Use DVD shrink to decode them. hope this helps.

depends on the speed your burning at/ and if your ram can support such a fast burn transfer. At what speed are your burning at ?

I have a duel formatt DVD writer that supports 16x , but i only burn DVD's at 8x, cuz the quality is better, and it won't cause skips in the playback.

Go to start
right click on MY COMPUTER
click on Properties
then on hardware
select divice manager
then IDE CONTROLLER
then secondary
select advance settings

should have current tranfer mode: should be DMA
not PIO

Ok, you have an external DVD burner and you plugged it in a USB port of your laptop and you put a DVD movie on the laptop dvdrom and want to burn it on the external USB DVD burner.
YOu have the right software, DVDShrink and Nero 6 which by the way is it a bundled version or a full version where you had to enter a serial number. Bundled versions do not do everything the full version does.
From what I know of copying DVD's, DVD shrink it will decrypt it and copy the files to your hard drive (does the laptop have sufficient space?) and after that Nero burns it.
When you plug your burner on your laptop, does it recognize it; do you have any conflicts?
Finally, Sony is well known to be in the battle against piracy (You can't even play a wav CD you made from mp3 files on most Sony systems), so I would presume the sony sony combo may not be an ideal combo. I would suggest you try it on a desktop PC and make sure you have a full version of Nero, not the bundled one, big difference.
