If You want to make backup copies of your dvds, you not only need a dvd burner but a program that can decrypt the encrypted copywrite movies. Any program just wont do.

Um, you can get trials over the net. It will allow you to copy around 3 movies then it will cease to work. You have to buy the actual program for that. The best program i know that copies most dvds with special features and all is the "DVD Xcopy Platinum". You get the odd one that doesn't copy but all in all it's worth it. I actually saw it in future shop with the dvd rescue included for around 50 bucks canadien. I think 321 studios is out of business(legal problems) so i'm not sure how long they will be on the shelves.

Of cours this is only to make backup copies of your own DVDs right boys.



****in' A, man. I got a rash, man
I have ripped in the past but for back up purposes and it can be done using freeware

I'm like some of the above. I have way too big of a DVD collection to have it ruined by some "fake." I do back up all of my DVDs though, just in case I ever happened to lose a DVD or they somehow get scratched. That hasn't happened yet but I'm taking precautions. The only DVD I have ripped that I do not own was Without a Paddle because it was a decent movie but I would never buy it.

I have ripped my (how do I say) unwanted movies onto DVD-R, and sold the originals at Movie Trading Company. I needed the money then. That's about it.

I use a program called Slysoft that can do just that. It's amazing. I got mine off the net as well yet, you need a certain code and serial # and whatnot. Somebody I knew a long time got me passed all that.



i dont see the problem with ripping,the ****in things are so expensive and the money you give goes to "questionable" sources **cough *george bush* cough**

i rip all the time and i dont think i will ever stop



dvd shrink is my favorite software,you get high quality compressed video and you can chose multiple options with region codes and whatnot
