Has anyone heard of DVD X Copy that supposedly burns DVD movies, even if
they are copyrighted?
I want a product that is EASY to use to copy movies. I don't know if I
could use the ones that require a dycrypter - especially since I don't even
know what that means!!!!.
On this DVD X copy website, it says these programs can no longer be sold,
they are just selling what they have left.
I have Nero Express on my computer, but it is just for Data - not movies.
Any help in this area would be appreciated.
I posted before, but had to reformat my hard drive and lost everything.
Thanks.

I thought I recognized your name. You could have searched for your
previous post. This was my reply at the time:

Commercial DVD movies are often much larger than 4.7GB, and feature copy
protection. Both of these obstacles will stump Nero. Instead, try the
combination of DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink (both freeware) as described
here: http://www.dvdr-digest.com/articles/articles.php?articl...

Copying commercial DVDs is not as quick and easy as copying audio CDs, but
if you follow the instructions at that link (print them out beforehand)
you should have no problem. It depends how powerful your system is, but
it can take many hours to copy a single movie.

Regards,
Ian.

I am afraid to download freeware for fear it will wreak havoc on my
computer, plus the fact, are there good enough directions for a novice to
use? Thanks so much.

If all the issues you mention frighten you as much as they
seem, perhaps you should just BUY the movies
you want instead of copy them...

But I'll bet you never even thought of that...

I understand your concerns about randomly installing freeware
applications- many are bundled with adware and spyware. The two apps I am
recommending to you, DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter, contain NO adware or
spyware at all. I've been using both for a couple of years now, and my
system is completely spyware/adware-free according to scans by AdAware,
McAfee AntiSpyware, Microsoft AntiSpyware, TrojanHunter, Nod32 Antivirus
and Norton Antivirus.

Copying a DVD movie is not as easy as copying an audio CD, but if you
print out the directions at the link I gave you- printer-friendly version
here:
http://www.dvdr-digest.com/articles/articles.php?articl...
and just follow along step-by-step, you will do just fine.

Regards,
Ian.

Bottom line:

Retail versions (non-freeware) of the software
you describe were available for a short time. The
producers were quickly hauled into court and were
forced to withdraw it. Any DVD copy solution you
will find will, by its very nature, be a volunteer effort
by an individual or group with nothing to lose should
they wind up in the crosshairs. It will likely NEVER come
in a box at a store, from some manufacturer you recognize,
because, at this particular instant in the evolution of
fair-use rules, what you are proposing to do has been
labeled as an infringement of copyright law, at least in the US.

We all hope that that will change, but it will take time.

So, either get over your fears or go buy the DVD.

Educate yourself here:

The program AnyDVD is good for removing the copy protection and easy to
use. Go to its website: www.slysoft.com
The copying itself is done by Nero, Roxio (or whatever DVD
burning/copying software you have on your computer) after AnyDVD has
done it's job. Any questions?

Oh my gosh - I printed out that digest website - 57 pages. I hope that all
isn't for copying a DVD!!!!! I assume it is for different ways to do it. I
have just skimmed through it. I don't understand the lingo, but it does
seem to take you step by step. I downloaded the Decrypter and the Shrink.
The digest seemed to prefer an outside decrypter as opposed to the one that
comes with Shrink.
Do you know if this digest is broken down into different parts or do I go
through all 57 pages????
Hate to sound dumb, but just thought I would get my questions answered
before I start on this process.
Thanks.
