    I think so. It's free to make copies for your own personal use, but if you distribute them, even freely, that's still illegal. What is a legal / moral grey area is the copyright protection producers place on games / cds / dvds

    Its sort of like the paraphenalia you see in certain shops, selling bongs etc, obviously the implied use is illegal but selling it isn't illegal.

    Hi guys:

    I have been using DVD X Copy Xpress for some time and it is excellent but occasionally there are some discs that don't copy.

    How reliable and robust is DVD Shrink. It looks more flexible on the web site but you know what they say about things that are given away for nothing? It is because they are worth nothing.

    DVD Shrink is one of the finest pieces of freeware software ever released.
    Does everything you could ever want from a DVD ripping program.
    I've used it to back up a good 80% of my own titles.
    Most you couldn't tell the difference when watching them.

    Best thing is you can remove all the cack at the start (WB logo etc...) and just have the movie. Load disk and get right into the movie. No more time wasting everytime you just want to watch the film.

    Would agree that DVD Shrink is excellent. Only thing that I have found is that newer versions seem to be more picky about copy protection. So sometimes when I am backing up my DVD's I have to use SmartRipper first and then DVD Shrink to actually get rid of the crap.

    DEO, that's certainly true for some freewares, but I can assure you it isn't the case for DVD Shrink.

    Why don't you give it a try?
    Not only is it free, but it doesn't use an installer (it runs from the unzipped .exe file). ;)

    Dave, the latest version, v3.0 beta 5, not only remove the CSS, but also RCE, and all the PUO (Prohibited User Operations). ;)
    It's actually a bit more picky about the authoring of the original DVD.

    A new version should come out soon, that will fix some remaining issues, and add new features (layer-break removal, audio included in the preview, GUI similar to v2.3, etc etc).
    From more details:

    I had a problem backing up my version of Shallow Grave (R2) and Blade (R1) recently. Is always came up saying that it was copyrighted and could not be encrypted.

    I had to run it through DVD Decrypt first and then DVD Shrink.

    Never used to have this problem in my older version of the software but can't find it now to test the theory. I will check which version I have.


    Cheers,


    Dave.
