    Ummmm, ever heard of copyright laws?? I believe what you are trying to do is very illegal, so no, I can't help you. Even thought yes, it can be done.

    It is just as illegal to make a copy and give it away as it is if you sell it. The point is that only the person who purchased the DVD should have copies of it.

    Sites like this need to be careful about giving advice on copying DVDs. They could get in trouble and shut down if it can be shown that they were fascilitating people stealing/pirating DVDs.

    So, any of the advice given in these forums should be for the purpose of making backups or copies of DVDs that you own, for your own use, or for hypothetical situations.

    So, users of the forum need to be careful how they ask their questions. If they ask the question in such a way that makes it obvious they are making illegal copies, then they will probably not get help.

    We're not trying to be dicks, just trying to protect the site.

    OK, lets *say* you wanted to back up a DVD with copyright protection and you simply wanted to protect your right to that media that you purchased.

    If that was the case, what we would recommend you to do, if to read through the guides in this site, but basically to 'rip' the files from the original (decrypt, or remove copy protection) 'author' the files (process them to fit on single DVDR, or process the IFO/VOB to fit on two DVDRs), then 'Burn' it (write it to a blank DVD)

    There you go, Robert's your father's brother.

    Well, just play the DVD in your player and run it into a VCR, then run from the VCR into the standalone deck, and hit record on that deck...it isn't brain surgery!!
