Copying copyright DVD's

by madseason / March 2, 2006 9:36 PM PST

Is there any way to copy a copyright DVD? I have no intentions of selling, distributing, profiting etc. I simply want to copy my DVD's, as I do with all my CD's, for travel purposes. If I go on vacation or bring a DVD to friends house, I don't have to worry about it being mishandled, scratched or forgotten because it's a copy and I still hold the original. Is there any way to do this? I have windows XP pro, sony dual layer dvd burner, and Nero 6.

Of course this request is a topic where there is much controversy. Myself, I agree with your usage request: making a backup of a DVD you own. With that said...

There are many such programs doing what you desire. I find though that 'AnyDVD' and 'CloneDVD' are the best for the Windows platform.

A 'free' way is with 'DVD-Decrypter', and its output will probably work with Nero.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
