    Hi folks, Im new to this site and might I add that its one cool site!
    What a world of acronyms in which we live in. LOL. Anyway I hope this post has found its way to the right category.
    I was wondering IF it is possible to copy a commercial dvd using a dvd burner and nero express 6 software? Is there something that needs to be in place to bypass "macrovision"?

    Also can DVD be copied to a common vhs tape?

    I look forward to any reply by those who are "experts" in this technical challenge.

    Thanks

    Very informative site!

    You're going to need a bit more than your nero software. Lucky for you the programs that you'll need are freeware.
    DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter.
    Here's a little site to learn how to use them....

    Hi - you really need to get out more.

    Yes - it is possible to copy/backup commercial DVD's.

    I would suggest starting with DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter (both free and available by clicking on the Software tab at the top of this page). Nero can be used for burning.

    Guides for both programs are also available by clicking on the Guides tab at the top of this page.

    It is also possible to copy a DVD to vhs tape but you will need appropiate video card and appropriate software to circumvent Marcovision.

    You obviously have a bit of reading and homework to do but if you persist all will be revealed.

    Many guides, software and useful information available through this site.

    Spend a week or two learning and exploring and you will be right to go.

    Just about in synch - you beat me by a whisker.

    I learnt by doing a lot of reading and exploring on this site - hope stevedvd does the same.

    Have very seldom had a bad burn and the few that have happened have been due to faulty disk or operator malfunction (the interface between the chair and the keyboard).

    You do a great job in helping new members - LOL
