    Off the top of my head ... You can use AnyDVD w/ CloneDVD2, AnyDVD w/ Recode2(part of Nero 6), or DVDXCopy to make a backup and it will delete the temp. files once it's burned.

    Ya know you can use DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter (both free), and when your done backing up ... just delete the files.

    I think he wants to do a "on the fly" burn. It's not recomended it causes LOTS of errors.

    After hundreds of backups I can tell that there is little benefit to on the fly copying because of potential problems. First, most DVD's are type 9's which means they need to be compressed before burning, only type 5's can be copied on the fly. Second you run the risk of semaphore timeouts (your equiptment could stop responding)which will result in coasters and wasted media.

    Go here and get a free copy of DVD Shrink which will rip, remove encryption, and compress. You'll need another buring app to burn such as Nero. If you don't have anohter app to burn then you can download a copy of DVD Decrypter which is also free and use it to burn but you have to process in ISO mode. You can start by reading this guide.

    Next if you need more help go to this thread and ask for ddlooping and tell him Sophocles sent you.

    Or go here and start another thread and ask for ddlooping.
