No, backing up your own DVD's is fine.
Here is what I do when backing up my DVD's.
Download DVD Decrypter. Sorry I can't provide the link.
Download DVD Shrink.

1: Place the DVD into your DVD-ROM and open up DVD Decrypter (DVDD)
2: From there go Mode-->ISO-->READ
3: DVDD will then create an ISO of the DVD and a .MDS file.
4: Depending on the size of the DVD and what sort of media your using, just open up DVD Shrink.
5: Drag and drop the .MDS file of the movie that DVDD just created. You'll get a quick preview of the movie as DVDShrink goes through it.
5.1: On the top menu there is a Re-Author button. Click it.
6: Double click the Title 1 under Main Movie
7: Then go Back-Up!
8: After that a screen will show up. Just go with 'ISO Image File and burn with DVDD'
9: Depending on your write speed, you should be done in a little bit.

Your welcome.

I'm pretty sure that it depends on where u live. Since u are braking a copyprotection, which can be illegal in some places.

Or you could just get AnyDVD, put the dvd into the drive, and copy with Nero.

If the DVD is too large and will not fit on a blank DVD+/-R then you will need DVD shrink to shrink the DVD.

I think DVD's are too flimsy anyway. They scratch all to easy, and the slightest scratch renders them skipping, etc. I've had it soo many times

So, I rspect people wanting to backup for the worst. Just to not flogg them to mates afterwards...haha...

I'm dissapointed Blu-Ray and HD-DVD hasn't got a form of protection over them, than a standard material. Even if it is scratch resistant. They said the same with DVD's, AND they are compressed more.

My gamecube for example uses smaller type DVD discs, custom made to stop piracy. My mum got tired of me not puttin it back into my room after using it, sicne I think its best to keep it where I'll use it.
Anyhow, she goes and stuffs it into my warddrobe, upside down.

The Burnout 2 disc fell out, scratched a few times since its been in there. (There are 2 slight scratches on it)
Come to play it, and Disc error
