Default DVD Copy Question?

I have a library of DVD's in my collection. All bought LEGALLY! I just wanted to back them up. Most of them are getting pretty old and I wanted to make a copy of them incase they get scratched or just worn out. I dont know how to copy DVD's so I dont know even what software to use? Also is there anycopyright materials? I need to know what all software to buy so I can get a start on my collection...Thanks

right, I looked along time ago at this, well alot of dvd's have a copyright, and its something beginnging with D i think, im not 100% but its 4 letters and yes you can get threw it but we can't tell you how on here, maybe google it, but when you start trying to burn the dvd (use nero) it will say something about copyright, well when it does copy paste it in google and do some research.

Some DVDs have the protection software on so you need to use something like DVD FAB PLATINUM that removes it as it compresses it to DVD format, DVD SHRINK does not have that, but will back up non restricted stuff

I beg your pardon, DVD FAB is a perfectly legal back up software there is nothing wrong with giving that out, but discussing torrents is using a PM would be better

Infact blackjack it depends which country you are in as some have diffrent laws but why would this be legal ? if your removing copyright which if you look up is copyrighted by someone which means you can't edit it and things like that but when you taske the copyright of your editing it so please do explain

One of the biggest debates between the public and the recorded music industry is whether or not creating backup copies of personal CDs and DVDs is legal. Manufacturers state that making copies for any purpose is illegal because to do so is a copyright infringement, but the public is in favor of the Fair Use Act and the Audio Home Recording Act of 1992. These are open to interpretation, but in a nutshell – you may legally make a copy of your CD for personal backup if you were the one who bought (and still own) the original.

If the Industry doesn't want people to make back up copies of there CDs or DVDs then they should ban the programs that can copy them. I have plenty of back ups from my own stuff so I can take them away and watch them away from home knowing they wont get the originals damaged

As I said before it will work but NOT on all of them as it will not be able to open security encrypted DVDs, you will find out as soon as you start, if it wont do it use DVD FAB.

It is my understanding, unless the law has been changed, that you can legally make one archival back up copy. How you do it is a different matter.

yes, every country has different laws, you can't copy CDs or DVDs leagally in the UK...

however, the poster who asked the original question is based in a university within America from his IP address.
and these forums are hosted in america. and there is a "fair usage" policy with regards ripping media that you've bought in America.

(you can transpose media, e.g rip CDs or movies to a computer if you have the original, this is illegal in the UK).

Programs that I've used are dvdx (freeware - google it)
dvddycrypter (freeware - google it)
and Slysofts AnyDVD (commercial - still google it).

I've never found a DVD that these can't rip.

with some DVDs you get copy protection errors, one way to get around these is to play the DVD whilst ripping it at the same time, playing the DVD removes the media locks that prevents copying it in *some* cases.

Most programs like DVD SHRINK/FAB work automatically with Nero so if you have that already installed you don't have to worry, I would think convertxtodvd is just the same.
