what DVD ripper should I use?
AnyDVD+DVD Decrypter only use DVD Shrink if you need to resize for a single layer disc.
Use imgburn to write.
none of which are legal.
That's funny you came back, troll.
Technically it depends on his country of residence, but in the US no, they are not legal.
Hmm, I like how you're the one suggesting he partake in an illegal activity, yet I'm the troll.
Funny I'm not the one who's been banned for bad fellowship
i've only ever used dvd shrink and dvd decrypter.
it couldn't be illegal if you were making a copy just as a personal backup if you owned the dvd you are copying
Unfortunately, the Digital Millenium Copyright Act contradicts itself when it comes to copying DVDs. It says you're allowed to make a copy for backup, but not allowed to break the encryption or circumvent copy protection.
But depending on location is true!
the personal-use backup cannot defeat copy-protection.
but you can't make a copy unless you decrypt..unless you use nero or something to make a copy right?
that's the point... You can make a "personal-use" backup, but you cannot defeat copy-protection... Most copy-protection does not allow you to make a backup, so you would have to defeat the protection first, which is against the law in many countries.
It's a loophole that the industry has used to prevent any form of backup, personal or not.
You can't break one law just to exercise another.
That's an interesting dilema isn't it. But it doesn't deter a people who value their freedom. It's a problem with the way the rules are setup, but not a problem for those with sense enough not to follow them.
funny, you're the one guilty of it.
wow i was just expecting people to name some programs and it turned into a fight...
thanks for your replies!
