I want to make backups of some invaluable copy-protected DVDs directly to my hard drive as ISO files.

I'd be very grateful to anyone who could recommend any freeware that could make these copies for me.

I thank forum members in advance for their help. I very much appreciate it.

If you are talking about movies, no freeware works properly for this. Best thing is Slysoft DVD AnyDVD

have you checked "DVDFab HD Decrypter"

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm just wondering what formats it copies the DVD as and what you would recommend. I'd rather a single file/folder format like MPEG-2. Also how long does it take. What I've tried so far seems to take forever. I just wonder if that is the nature of the beast.

i never own or have a chance to use copy protected DVD's...
from the details listed on wesite
Input
DVD-Video disc, Blu-ray-Video disc
Output
DVD folder, Blu-ray folder

just use this to remove the Copy protection & then use Handbrake , formatfactory or any other rippers for specific format..
freeware are programs by contribution of lot of people.. and you cant expect every thing in 1 place as similar to paid software made by media giants
search with sourceforge.net for better products if available

There was a utility out a while ago called DVD Decryptor that was free. This would extract the original vob et al files. You could then burn these on to a new disc.

And apparently someone has made a mirror of the old site.
