2. From the drop down menu at the very top of the DVD Decrypter Screen choose 'Tools' then ''Settings' as shown in the example below:
Select Tools and then Choose Settings from the drop down menu's

2. Save the file from notepad with a new title.. Obviously try to make it known that it is ready to work with dvd decrypter so add it in the filename maybe..
3. Once you have saved the newly edited file you can close notepad.
Burning the final backup
Now this is the easy part for all those who already know how to burn using DVD Decrypter so you can all go right ahead and skip this lesson but for those of you out there who don't know how to use DVD Decrypter I will explain in detail with pics to explain everything for you.
1. Start DVD Decrypter again or if you have it running still just switch back to it.
2. From the drop down menu in dvd decrypter select 'Mode' then 'ISO ->' and then finally select 'Write' as shown in the image below or alternatively you could just press the 'W' key for WRITE MODE.
3. Open the IMAGE-DECRYPTER.DVD file you made ealier by selecting the browse icon or by choosing 'File' and then selecting 'Browse' from the drop down menu's.
Browse for the IMAGE-DECRYPTER.DVD file on your pc and open it.
If you receive a "Invalid or unsupported image file format!" error when you load this file, it means your backup was made incorrectly!
3. Insert blank media into your dvd recorder on your pc
4. After the system scans the media choose the BURN icon which will light up green or choose 'File' and then Select 'Write'.. The BURN icon will only be shown when blank media is ready and inserted. The Green Arrow will Light up and allow you to select it once it is ready.. See example image.
Click the BURN icon as shown in this image
That's it your all done..
