I just recently bought a Plextor PX-708A. Works great. There are tricks to copying dvd's and stuff, I've searched all over the place and these 2 are the easiest I've found. AnyDVD and CloneDVD. Here's how it works. AnyDVD strips off all the copyright junk and then you make a copy of the DVD with CloneDVD, it works great and makes an exact copy, with the menus and everything. I've done it about 10 times now and no problems at all. A lot of the other programs require a lot of work in order to copy a DVD, I just wanted something simple and easy.
