I recently bought a Sony PCV-RS320 desktop pc. A friend of mine told me that my computer has the software to be able to copy a store bought dvd movie onto my hard drive, which I can then put a blank dvd-r in and then make a viewable copy of the original. I asked him what about the copy protection, and he said that the software copies the copy protection, movie and everything. He said the way it does this is to check some box or something that says, "bit by bit". This is supposed to mean that it copies the movie a bit at a time I tried to do this with one of my movies I bought at the video store, but had no luck. First of all, I couldn't find a box anywhere that says "bit by bit", not to mention how to even copy a dvd of any kind, period, to the hard drive. I'll admit I'm a novice at doing any of this kind of stuff. I should also point out that I assume that if Sony does include this ability to copy dvds with the computers they make, that they do it legally by means of the fact that if someone copies a dvd, they will be using it at home for their own private purposes and nothing else. If there's anyone out there that knows about this, or knows how to do it, feel free to share any info. Thanks, Tunes Man.
