    Is it possible to just stick a dvd in my pc and copy it. Is there any protection on the dvd or should it just copy ok?

    Usually. DVD Decrypter only if the DVD has copy protection.

    I've never had to use DVD Decrypter.

    I use DVD shrink 4.5 i think thats the version, its a great program. the program itself decrypts the security.

    Disclaimer,

    only for DVD's you own.

    If you are going to use a decrypter I would recommend AnyDVD.

    I use DVD Shrink and Any DVD as a pair, flawless copies all the time :cool:

    kync, why do you do that, dvd shrink decrypts the dvd's itself, the only disks i've ever had issue with, is if they are scratched or have finger marks on them

    my friend had a few problems burning some of his dvds, using AnyDVD fixed it. Seems some DVDs have a protection that DVD Shrink can't deal with. I myself haven't had that problem yet. :)

    And if I did I would use AnyDVD as my friend sent me his registration info(he bought it).

    I use anydvd along with dvd shrink as well. The reason for that is because shrink is no longer developed and anydvd will get the updates. Anydvd will also allow you to copy your audio cd's as well.

    I do it because sometimes a disc is encrypted. AnyDVD takes care of that, so I can make backups of movies I already own without issues :rolleyes:

    I recommend U Blu-Ray & DVD Decrypter

    recently I've tried this software. Frankly speaking I was agreeably surprised how it works - everything is clearly without help. The program works quickly, without any problems.
    In one word - it's very simple in using, but it has a lot of funcions which help you in ripping or burning DVD

    U can download it here - Download Free Blu-Ray & DVD Decryption Software
