    I've just bought a Pioneer DVD Burner 105 and was under the impression that i could back up my DVD movies. However, i'm getting the impression from various sites that you're not allowed to do this although there seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding the issue.

    Basically i want to know if you can make back ups of your DVDs and if so, what's the best software to use?

    I personally do not have a DVD reader or writer (that's what xbox is for :O) I hear the easiest software for what you are attempting to do is called DVD X Copy located at http://www.dvdxcopy.com/ Check it out I think it's what your looking for :O)

    [Mobo] Asus A7N8X w/ Modified 1003 Uber BIOS w/ Custom Boot logo

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Legally, no you can't. Nearly all DVD's come with some form of copy protection, which prevents them from being copied.

    Illegally, I can't say.

    its pricey but it does work.. copys all the dvd menus and splits everything onto 2 discs automatically.

    even tells you which disc to insert when you are trying to access content not on the dvd in your dvd player.

    Try dvd x copy there are two versions dvd x copy regular which copies the entire dvd and dvd x copy express that just co-pies the movie the benefit is the whole dvd in most cases will need to be split dvd x copy express just does the movie so it will fit on one disk. go to 321studios.com and you may get it there
