I just dled DVD Shrink it's a freeware program that allows you to copy and put a DVD on disk. Fairly easy to use. You can find it on google. Just type in DVD Shrink.

DVD shrink. Makes great copies and is FREE. There are several other free programs available....you just need to do some searching online and pick one.

DVD Shrink is ok but its not the best. IMO DVD decrypter is the best hands down! And its also a free program.

DVD Shrink and Decrypter are both good, although I only use Decrypter for ripping DVD's. I'm not sure what DVDXGold has that's better that I would want to pay for.

I use DVD Decrypter also...but I found a neat little program that runs in the background called DVD4free that disables the copy protection on every DVD I have found...and then I can copy them either on DVD shrink...or using Nero with a double layer disc....PERFECT COPY.
Got all of the programs FOR FREE.

DVDXCopy/DVDXGold et. al are nothing more than a collection of freeware apps that they wrote a step by step tutorial on how to use them, and possibly made some simple "wrapper" application that automatically executes the underlying freeware programs as needed.

You might as well toss the money you'd spend on those programs into the fireplace.

www.doom9.org contains plenty of step by step tutorials on how to use all the applications listed.

DVD Decrypter + AutoGK or Gordian Knot = Rip DVD, encode to xvid (1 movie will fit on 1 CD, still very watchable)

DVD Shrink = Re-compress DVD to fit on 4.5GB media (ie: most readily available recordable DVD media)

DVD43 (aka DVD4free) or AnyDVD (not freeware) + DVD Decrypter = Full quality backups, but will require double layer/9GB media for most movies (more expensive and not as readily available)

It's a good idea to have DVD43 or AnyDVD running in the background regardless. DVD Decrypter is no longer being developed, and so far I haven't seen any suitable replacement. DVD Shrink I think was bought by Nero, and is now called Recode. So these apps will eventually fail on newer DVD's, as newer encryption's come out that they can't handle. Enter DVD43/AnyDVD to take care of any new encryptions on the fly. DVD43 is freeware, but not as actively updated as AnyDVD, which isn't freeware but one $30 purchase entitles you to lifetime updates.
