    Is there a simple way of 'caching' a DVD to the HD? Just to be clear, I am not interested in pirating DVDs in any way - it's just that friends sometimes bring over a DVD to watch and it would be nice to be able to watch the extras another evening without having to keep the DVD. Likewise, if I hire a DVD, you can be sure that something comes up just as I'm about to watch it. So, is there a simple way of copying the DVD to my HD, watching it at my leisure and, then, deleting it?

    TIA,

    Easiest way if you don't want to fart about too much is to use DVD Decrypter to copy the DVD to an ISO on you machine. Then use Daemon tools to mount the ISO. The computer will then treat it as just another DVD in your computer. These programs are freeware and a quick google search will find them no probs.
