Default DVD Burners

Hey Folks...

I'm going to step off into a "risky business" area. Tell me about dvd burners and copying movies. You can copy copyrite commercial movies... right?

I bought an external DVD Burner today. On the box, it said it would burn dvd's, copy dvd movies, etc. When I got it home and opened it... it had a huge disclaimer that said "This device will not copy copyrite commercial movies" I was disappointed.

I know that I've heard of folks making copies of dvd movies. I'll bet that all of us have made copies of cassette tapes, CDs, VHS Tapes, etc at least once in our lives. I realize its a gray area when we start making copies of any copyrited material. However, I only want it for my personal use. I pay good money to rent the movies. I'd like to copy some of the good ones for my own library. Is this a forbidden act?

So, what do you think?

Should I forget about it?

What should I get to copy movies?

Steve

something I found. Hope it helps or offers some info. I know you can buy software to help copy movies.:

DVD Copying Basics:

Copying a DVD requires 2 general technical processes - extracting (or ripping) the data from the source DVD, and copying the extracted data onto the destination DVD-R(W).

When the data is extracted, it must be stored temporarily onto the computer's hard drive, therefore, free disk space of at least 4.7 GB is required to copy a standard DVD. Some DVD copying software such as
1Click DVD Copy, will handle this 2 step process behind the scenes, allowing you to simply select a source drive and destination drive and click "Start", making it a 1-step process. Of course, in order to use this method, both a DVD writing/burning drive and a DVD reading drive are required. If you only have one drive, you must use the 2 step-method outlined below.

Note that some programs will require more than 2 steps for this process, requiring you to select compression levels and whether or not you want to spread it across 2 disks.
1Click DVD Copy handles all of this for you and will only require 2 steps.

Step 1 - Extracting the data to the hard drive:
Put the DVD that you want to copy into your DVD burner. Within the DVD copying software, set both the "source" and "destination" to your DVD burner. If you do not know which drive is your DVD burner, select the one that has an icon of a with a CD/DVD looking disk on it. If there are multiple drives that fit this description, you will have to try each one. Next, you must set your "working directory" to a folder somewhere on your computer (this is the folder that the data will be extracted to temporarily). Now click "Start" or "Go" or whatever the program's option is.

Step 2 - Copying the extracted data onto the new DVD-R(W) disk:
Remove the DVD that you are copying from your burner and replace it with a DVD-R(W) disk. Click "Start" or "Go" or whatever the program's option is. Let this step finish, and you now have an exact copy of your original DVD.
