I've always used Roxio and never had any problems.

DVD X copy is a load of rubbish. Theres a far better way for going about that sorta thing, but ...errr.. with this being a public forum and all I wouldnt know anything about that!

As posted in other threads DVD shrink 3.1 is simply click, click (wait about 20 minutes) and finished. DVD decrypter is another program that rips DVD's to your HD first, after that you can convert them to other formats like mpeg,avi,divx etc by using one of the different converts around (see: google).

SmartRipper 2.41, it's amazing, and free. It copies the original files to hard drive, so you'll need like, powerdvd, or media player classic, something like that.

True, forgot to mention that one, nice and simple to use for the newbies to copying/backing DVD's.
