    Best DVD Copier Software?

    Need to make back up of a DVD I have just purchased for my son (mainly coz I know when he gets hold of it it will be scratched within 2 mins of viewing!)

    the DVD itself is 7.95gb (Made up of VOB and IFO files) - Does anyone know how I can copy this properly without any errors.

    with dvd shrink you can reduce the size of the file anyway to fit a dvd disc

    heres a novel thought. Tell him you wont be buying him any more dvds if he scratches them :w00t:

    if you're gonna copy them, then you might as well just torrent the film in the first place :thumbsup:

    Instead of the (arguably ethical if not legal) method of purchasing and copying for backup purposes you say he may as well just not pay and download for free?

    If it's one of the very latest dvd's using the latest protection then get ]DVDFab HD Decrypter

    DVDFab is great. I've just recently switched over to it from using just AnyDVD HD.

    No problem. In the DVD to DVD section you have the choice of doing the full disc or just the movie or a custom job (movie with one extra feature for example). If all you're interested in is the movie then select "main movie". You will see the list of video tracks on the disc on the right, choose the one with the longest running time. Choose the audio you want and subtitles if necessary.

    Finally at the bottom you will see an option to have DVD5 or DVD9, if you want it on normal disc then use DVD5. Choose wherever you want it to output the finished folder out to and away you go.

    If you're really worried about your discs being damaged, you can do two things. Firstly my son is 5, a couple of years ago he started getting hands on with the dvds (or worse Blu Rays) so I taught him to look after the discs by holding them the right way and basically made a big deal about him being a big boy who could be trusted with them. Since then he always holds discs correctly and even tells off other people who don't!

    Your second option is what I've also done recently which is to move away from physical media completely. Basically you can buy a box to put under the TV (you'll have seen them on here), you attach a USB hard drive (or network a hard drive) with all your movies that you ripped (using DVDFab for example) and they'll all show up on the on screen display of your new box. You just scroll to the DVD you want and press play. You never need to take a disc out of the box once you've ripped it.
