    DVD copy software

    Any DVD copy software ( OSS of course) available for Win XP ? A friend of mine needs it so that he can make backup copy of his DVDs that he bought (his Cars movie was broken only 2 days after he bought it after lending it to his friend's boy).

    So before I go out and buy dvdcopy for it. I like to sneak in as much OSS as possible on his box.

    TIA

    You could always use transcode, mplex, and cdrdao on Windows, but that's going a little overboard to stay with OSS. All that I see are rippers that are free, and not really any ripper/burners.

    Try DVD Shrink. It's free, runs on Windows and copies DVDs to an ISO on your hard disk. It is capable of removing "features" to make the size of the ISO smaller, such as; removing subtitles, removing foreign language sound tracks, high def, copy protection etc. You can then burn the DVD ISO using standard software.

    I will check it out. This guy was looking for pure dvd to dvd writing. If complicated, he will get lost (and I"m in no mode to answer questions on the phone for a long time). The last time I installed a firewall, he called me everytime the popup comes up asking him either to allow or disallow.

    There is no "pure" DVD to DVD copy. If you are talking about movies, they are all copy protected and you need to use some special hacking software for it. And the best place to ask are movie oriented forums.

    DVD shrink will do everything you are looking for. The only catch is that they have to have either Nero as they're burning software for DVD shrink to burn to the disk instead of just to an iso, or if you go to the DVD shrink website www dvdshrink org there is a free burning engine that you can download and use. I use DVD shrink for making copies of most all of my DVDs, there are only a few that I've found that DVD shrink was unable to do, and on those ones I was usually able to use DVDFab Decrypter to rip the DVD to my hard drive and then DVD shrink will open it fine. I've only run across a couple that those two programs were unable to copy and for those I ended up buying DVD Cloner IV, but if you are looking to stay with completely free software DVD shrink and DVDFab Decrypter work great and will probably be rare that you will need to use anything other than DVD shrink. As long as you have either Nero or the free burning engine I think your friend will be very happy with it. It's very easy and straight forward to use and there is no need to burn to an iso as others have suggested.

    DVD shrink indeed

    I would like to agree with everyone, DVD shrink is just so easy to use you can't fault it (except its free, but not open source). Small download size, great features, easy to use - can't go wrong.

    There are so many kinds of DVD Copy programs such as Pavtube DVD Copy.
    Just google search.
    By the way, I think when choosing an apprieate program for oursefves, we should consider not only its quality, functions, but also its after-sale service.
