    Hey, I just wanted to make a few backups of my DVDs but it says theres copy protection on them so it won't let me do so.

    Is there any way of removing/ working round this?

    Thanks

    I think that if you hook your player up to a camcorder, and then into the PC it should work. I seem to recollect doing this a while back.

    Or DVDSHRINK.

    Both usefull, DVDSHRINK maybe not as powerfull but is a lot simpler to use IMO. Also, if you have NERO you can compress DVD's to the size of a DVD-R and burn it straight to disk. It works out the compression automatically.

    I just use it to back up to Hard disk to prevent DVD drive noise on playback, so I always ensure the compression setting is 100%.

    DVD Shrink is handy for cutting out crap you don't need like different languages and subtitles.

    I think it would also be a good idea to explain what to use with your DVD writer(single layer DVD5, dual layer DVD9) and what to do.

    Exact DVD copy including all contents.

    Dual layer DVD recorder.
    8.5GB dual layer Recordable disk.
    DVDDycrpter - set to iso read mode.
    Copy original.
    Set DVDDycrypter to iso write mode and Burn the disk.


    Movie only.

    Single or dual layer recorder.
    4.7 single layer recordable disk.
    DVDDycrpter - set to file mode.
    Copy original.
    Use program like DVD2ONE and select movie only mode.
    Burn disk.

    Excellent burning software is Nero 6.

    I my experience DVD Shrink does a better job than DVD2One and is free .. or use Nero Recode which is the same program with a different UI .. and is more flexible since you can chop off trailing credits etc. to help minimise the amount of recompression needed when having to reduce the size as well as selecting audio streams etc.
