Default DVD Copy Software Question

Any suggestions as to what is the best software or freeware to copy DVD's? Naturally for personal use only.

If you are talking about a movie that you buy in the store like the Saprano's or something then there is no way to do it with out very illegal software. There is a kid that craked the old code but as soon as the word got out they now have a new one that to the best of my knowledge has not been cracked.

the software you want is called DVDshrink . . . and I have used it on just about everything I have and it has worked so far... even with Pirates of the Carribean which is supposed to be difficult to copy

www.dvdshrink.org

A friend does it all the time.
He even copies XBox and PS2 games. Has mod chips in his consoles.

So I can say I KNOW it can be done.

I've never done it. Don't even have a DVD burner.
My kids dump Kaaza rips all the time. Burn their own mixes.

I've got a close relative heavy into the music business. Also got a close friend heavy into the music business. The relative (a studio musician) is very ANTI piracy on all levels. The friend just doesn't seem to think its a big deal.

My relative feels that downloading is causing the collapse of the music industry. He says it is hitting him in his pocket.

I feel that the horrible overpricing of the store-bought music is the cause of the "collapse" if there is one. I feel the overpricing has virtually CAUSED the rampant downloading.

Thumbs up Re: DVD Copy Software Question

DVD Shrink (as TopSpin suggests) is free ware and I've been using it for couple years now. It is NOT illegal and is available all over the web. ver 3.2 is the latest and greatest.

It allows 'ripping' of any/all movies and then you chose what you want to 'back-up' ... full back-up, with all menus, subtitling, special effects, etc. Or you can pick and chose exactly what parts you want.

You can also chose 'compression' rates which vary between #'s 1-10. The more compression you chose, allows you to fit a whole movie, plus special effects, on a 4.7GB(normal size) blank disc. The larger a movie file sizes the more compression you may need to squeeze it on the disc. Or you can chose less compression and take less of the parts. Take only the movie, with no menus, no subtitles, no special effects. It's sort of a balancing game. NOTE: The more compression the less quality of the final backed-up copy.

Overall a great back-up freeware for sure. Once your files are ripped and ready to go (in a target folder) you pick your favorite 'burn' software and burn your DVD. IE: Nero, CD Creator by Roxio, DVD Image Burn, etc etc. There is bunch, you can use any. Enjoy ... If you need help you can PM me

Ok , howz about some help for those of us( me) that are PC knowledgable challenged. I looked at the DVD Shrink site, and can get to the latest version, U.S. 3.2, but there are another 20 download choices to choose from there. http://www.filemirrors.com/search.sr...ink32setup.zip
Don't suppose someone will target 'the' download I need? Thats.

BTW, Windows ME.
