Can I remove MV from my PC's DVD burner?

    I just bought a LO SHW-160P6S DVD burner. Can I get a hack to remove MV? If yes how do I do it? I just tried to burn a DVD that I bought about a year ago but I can't get past simulation.

    I'm using a NEC 8X DVD drive for original DVD. I have WinXP PRO on my clone PC that I built.

    Thanks

    I think it is possible in some cases with hacked firmware. I found this whilest searching for more info, it may help you. I'll look into which firmwares you'd need and then how to go about doing it.

    -You can trust that info by the way, as I see Whompus is posting there, and he's a moderator for an affiliate site of AfterDawn itself. ;-)

    If you are referring to Macrovision, then that's embedded in the DVD video data itself; the drive has nothing to do with it. Almost all DVD-copying tools remove it on-the-fly, such as AnyDVD, DVDFab Decrypter, DVD-Decrypter, etc.

    Yes I'm referring to macrovision. Ripper, Thanks for the link I'll check it out. Dunker, I have Nero (the free one that came with the drive) and it would not let me copy it. Yea, I know that MV is on the disc. So all I need is one of these other copyers you named?

    Thanks

    Yes, and AnyDVD, DVD-Fab, and Ripit4me will take care of the newer copy-protections as well. FYI, I'd check out some of the guides here on those programs, as Nero is a not the ideal tool for copying DVDs, at least not if you're copying onto Double-Layer discs. Odd as it may seem, beating the copy-protection is the easiest part of backing up DVDs; using the right compression program (if any), burning tools, and disc types is where things get a bit tricky.
