anyone in here copy dvds? i got a burner so i could make backups of my movies and when i try to copy them it says its protected content and it wont let me copy. is this with all dvds or just the one i happen to have?
yeah we copy them all the time for " back ups " first of all you have to have a dual layer dvd burner to copy movies, plus you have to get a good dvd burning program that will allow you to edit the dvd and shorten it. because if you put a dvd into your pc you will see that it is sometimes like 3 gigs worth data on the dvd. trial and error will teach you. i went thru an entire 20 pack before i got one right. now i mess up maybe one or two in a 50 pack
Look for a program called Super DVD Ripper...or soemthign like that. Just save money by going and buying a 120GB hard drive and save video to your computer. You can still maintain full size and very good quality with it not being horribly large.
I'll have to ask my buddy how he does it but he copies all kinds of movies for me. Um, I mean he lets me borrow some of his backup DVD's for a very long time. The DVD's he puts them on look like a regular 50 pack DVD, nothing too special. The only thing I notice is when I first start the movie it'll tell me that it's an archive copy and give me a "warning: the FBI it going to bust down your door and kill you" message. But they always play just fine. If I could get that figured out I'd have a hay day with NetFlix.
