Lost my DVD burning unlocker code doing reinstall

Oct 31, 2011

I have Fast DVD Copy and loved it. I was doing a reinstall of Lepoard and the disk crashed half way through saying it was dirty. Needless to say it wiped out my drive. I had a Super Duper bootable backup but when I went to restore from the disk it was looking for Time Machine backups, my firewire drive with the backup wouldn't even show. So I started from scratch, reinstalling stuff and pulling stuff over.

When I open Fast DVD Copy for the 1st time its looking for unlocker code. Went to company but domain is for sale. Is there any way to restore from a preference or some hidden folder in my backup that contains the code?

If not whats the best DVD burning software out there? I use mac The Ripper to rip it into a folder 1st.
