Default DVD Burning

I have alot of DVDs that I want to make backup copies of, but I realize that most recent DVDs are copy protected. There are alot of programs available which claim to be able to overcome this, but I have never dealt with this before, and I really do not want to make alot of coasters. Therefore, I'm wondering if there is a program which will simply tell me if a particular DVD is or is not protected, before trying to burn it?

Default Re: DVD Burning

All movies on DVD are copy protected, unless it was homemade or ripped by someone.. So there's your answer. And no need for a program to tell you it

Besides, even if the DVD wasn't copy protected it doesn't mean you're guaranteed a good copy. Some DVD±R/RW are not as good of quality as others, and you're more likely to make a coaster of it anyways..

I've found most DVDs that were made in Japan are of the best quality, though not always. You can check the media code on writable DVDs with a program called DVDInfoPro.

Practically all commercial store bought movies are going to be copy protected. DVDDecrypter used to be the best program out there to decrypt the contents to your hard disc from which you could burn it to a backup. That program is no longer available officially but I bet you could find it somewhere out there on the web. There may be even better alternatives now.

BTW I recommend Ritek for cheap DVD+R and Verbatim for DVD+R DL blanks.

DVD Shrink does have its problems with newer copy protections. The page you just linked to even states that. So if you're backing up your entire DVD collection that includes some newer DVDs, DVD Shrink will likely not cover it. You'll need some other tools such as DVD Decrypter (as mentioned) or, my favorite, AnyDVD. I like AnyDVD because it supports newer copy protections and does decryption on the fly, so you don't need to use anything other than DVD Shrink and you don't need the extra hard drive space. The only drawback is that AnyDVD is not freeware.

Default Re: DVD Burning

I have downloaded DVDinfo and I also found a copy of DVD Decrypter. From what I understand, DVD Decrypter works in the background to remove the protection when burning with another burner. I noticed that Any DVD said that it worked best with CloneDVD, but my burner is Nero. Is there a program that has greater compatability with this?

Anydvd works fine with Nero. Clone dvd is made by the same company its just marketing.

Get Anydvd or use dvd decrypter then use dvdshrink

I'm really good at asking dumb questions, but if Nero works, why do I need dvdshrink or some other burner?

Dvdshrink isnt a burner it just compresses/removes protection

Default Re: DVD Burning

I sort of found that answer on the download site for dvdshrink, but they also had 4 other files that they recommended using as well. I'm just beginning to see a glimmer of light on this, because it appears to be somewhat more complex than I thought at first. I don't suppose that there is a burner available with everything needed to burn these without all of the separate steps required...is there?

I never thought that these movies would be on DL disks, so I guess that I would want to compress them also, to a single layer.
