Back-Up's of the OT a New Forum or Offical Thread

I think we should devote a whole new forum or offical thread to Back-Up the OT to DVDR formats and such. I don't think the site should have anything to do with selling copies of anything, too much legal hassal. But to have a forum or dedicated thread where we discuss in detail how to back them up. step by step, onto the current formats and the newer formats of DVD recordable, such as the ones that will have dual layer, would be great. And as I said, don't sell anything. Just have a disclaimer that says, "This information is for the legal backup of fans who own LD versions of the Original Theatrical Versions of the Star Wars Trilogy." And after all, who else would care about the information but those who could actually use it with their LD copies? What do you Jay and everyone else think? Yes or No?

That's not a bad idea, but I don't have the LD's, only the VHS set.
The original Star Wars trilogy: Our cultural history deserves to be preserved and should be available to the public like all great works of art!

Same here, but still a good idea.

Thanks, I am glad to hear everyone is liking. Since I got my Faces LD and even before, I knew this day might come. Right now, I think the new forum or thread would first be about menus, pics of the chapters, things like that. I figure the layout of the SE(UE) DVD's can be copied from the same part of the LD. The important thing of course are the specs. So if any of you out there SEE some LD to computer stuff, email me at JediMasterDJR@yahoo.com. Right now my primary concern is to get the movies perfect on the harddrive. I am not even going to worry about burning them for real until the dual layer DVDR(RW) formats come out, but I will probably burn a part of the movies on a DVDRW just to see if it would work.

I feel your pain. All I can suggest is preserve the VHS copies as best you can, and if I can, I will see if I can figure out how to back up the VHS since I have two copies of the Faces Pan & Scan Trilogy on VHS.



Though with everyone's permission, I will start an offical thread in General Star Wars Discussion unless someone thinks another forum would be better. I'll post it in 2 days.
