    Use this link http://www.slysoft.com/en/ download the free 21 day trial.

    use the software link at the top of the page download DVDshrink and DVDecrypter both free.

    read some guides by ScubaPete and/or bbmayo, and make sure you use good media [discs]


    good luck

    As gringle has stated you need some help check out the link in my signature for some guides. The easiest one there is "ScubaPetes guide" I suggest you use that one and both programs used in that guide are free. DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter

    dvd shrink as suggested will remove the protection on most dvd,it will also compress it for you
    problematic dvd(difficult protection) can be ripped with dvd decrypter
    then shrunk in dvd shrink,
    use dvd decrypter as your burn engine
    dvd-r tends to be used more as it favours standalone dvd players a bit more
