Not strictly a topic for this forum I know, but one which has been puzzling me and is closely related to DVD . A work colleague bought a new PC last week complete with DVD re-writer. He smugly went off to the local library to hire some recent film titles with the intent of copying them. To say he was miffed next day at work was an understatement. He said none of the DVD Video disks he had hired would copy. He reckoned they had some sort of encryption written into them. Is this so? and if true then what is the point of having a DVD re-writer in your PC? I know you can use DVD to store large amounts of data, as well as make your own home movie DVD's etc. However, I would have thought a lot of people expect to be able to do the things they do with their CD re-writers i.e. copying.
