Okay I originally bought Dual DVD copy Gold for $40, and found out that it works great, but can only copy unencrypted dvd5's. Thus, since most movies are encrypted and on dvd9's, this program is pretty much useless. Then I discovered this site and I have downloaded dvd shrink and dvd decrypter and I have been using that method with 100% success in copying dvds (I still haven’t figure out how to keep the menu functioning when I have to split the dvd onto 2 disks, but that is not the purpose of this posting). Anyway, I have read multiple postings about people not being able to copy newer movies because of some kind of fancy encryption that the studios (Sony) are using and that DVD Shrink is no longer improving its product. From what I understand, the DVD Shrink and Decrypter method that I have been using will probably keep working fine on older dvds, but not on the brand new ones. Since I already wasted $40 on one useless program, I don’t want to keep doing that. Thus, my question. If you had limited funds, what program(s) would you use during the next year or two to copy the newest dvds? I read that “AnyDVD v. 188.8.131.52" is good and about $40. I guess that AnyDVD doesn’t do everything - just decrypt the new stuff, huh? Can I use that to decrypt and then use my Dual DVD copy Gold (with its one step copying)? Or is there some other method. What I am looking for is the cheapest and easiest way to burn the new dvds. Thanks in advance for any help.
