The only program you need to copy a dvd movie is DVD X-Copy Xpress. It copies everything to date and every movie I've tried it has copied even of it is over 5 gig. I use dvd-5 media. The Verbatim movie reels and a Sony DVD+-RW DVD+-R DVD DL drive. It also writes and rewrites cd's. All movies copied with DVD X-Copy have the menus taken out and thus are made smaller. I have fit a 6.5 gig movie onto a 4.7 gig disc using DVD X-Copy and the backup is the exact same as the origional.
