How do I copying DVDs that have copyright protection?

Hello, I know there is a reason that copy right is on S/W & DVDs, so please no lecture. I would like to copy my DVDs as a personal backup.
I know there is a way of copying because I have done it with CD S/W.
For some reason I am not sucessful with DVDs.
I have Windows XP. I am using Leechget 2005 to assist in the copying. Also Nero SmartStart. I have copyed 80% of a DVD to the HardDrive. If I had been successful I then would have burnt a copy to a blank DVD. This process has been successful where CDs are concerned. I would be grateful if some one could help me. Thank You.

Kat, Please Review The Forum Policies... to "Piracy or Unlawful Activities" and "Other General Rules of Conduct"..Since most copyright protected DVD's DO NOT give you license to make backups of their copyrighted material, please avoid discussing it in these forums unless you can provide a copy of the license indicating such is allowed..
