Types of DVD
allow you to copy unencrypted DVDs onto hard drive. You then use
another freeware to burn the files to recordable DVD-R. If you want
to backup an encrypted movie DVD, you would need one extra step to
convert the encrypted files to unencrypted files before copying them to
the hard drive. The process is time consuming and involves separate
software. Fitting the content of movie DVD into one recordable DVD-R
is also complicated. Most commercial videos are recorded on dual
layer, and are much larger in size than one recordable DVD-R (single
layer). Therefore, you have to either reencode the video or reauthor
by discarding some extra features to reduce the size.
software can make 1:1 copy of non-commercial DVDs and unencrypted
commercial DVDs and are easy to use. However, they cannot be used on
most movie DVDs which are protected by video data encryption. The
most popular encryption used is CSS (Content Scrambling System) which
prevents consumers from transferring the data on the DVD to the hard
drive. If a straight copy is made, the file cannot be played properly.
In order to make a backup copy of these protected DVDs, you will need
software that decrypts the copy protection, such as
+ CSS Free.

your personal use, it is illegal to circumvent the copy-protection
