    i assume you are using the software that came with your dvd burner. If you want to use that software i suggest getting "anydvd" and running it while you are burning with your software. or you can look at other software there is alot of it out there some break the protection some don't. One of the most common and well recommended is "dvd shrink" and it's FREE !!!!!

    The latest version of DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter, which are both free and available from this site, are all you need to get started.
    Many users here only use these two programs. You may need AnyDVD, but I wouldn't rush out and buy it yet, I would see how you went first.

    DVDX copy is pretty good too. You can get it on e-bay or a peer to peer network. However, if you are to risk obtaining it from a P2P, you should be prepared to handle a virus or a trojan, as many of the non zip exe files on p2ps are viral.

    God! Just go with DVDD and Shrink. They're free and do everything you need them to. Anybody who spends money of dvd burning software is a sucker.
