Copying of commercial DVD's in the USA is not allowed, thus the big FBI warnings at the beginning of the movies.

Best solution

I am sorry, but that is not quite correct. The U.S courts continue to acknowledge Fair Use, our right to make a personal or backup copy, even as they have said the software to copy DVDs is illegal. [See this U.S. News article]. Thus, while we cannot recommend software here in these forums because the software is illegal, Yamma huang can legally use software to make a copy in the U.S as long as his (or her) intent is Fair Use and not some other illegal use.
