    Wow, nice reply mafia, real nice.

    Michelldavid, the best way is with a DVD burner, but there are other backup methods, which were brought to court and are now being questioned, and close to being banned and deemed illegal, which is a good reason as to why it can't be discussed here. I may be wrong, however.

    It is possible to burn a dvd to a cdr i used Dup-DVD b4 i got a dvd burner.
    If you do get a dvd burner i recomend the sony dru-500a its compatible with all dvd formats. Also, checkout www.vcdhelp.com that is a very useful site but you have to do your reading, its not easy. (Dup-Dvd is real easy though, its like 2 clicks and your done, and it doesnt copy it to 1 cdr it copies it to 2)

    a useful comment, but the remaining piece is uncalled for, we are supposed to be a friendly site, and crap like that doesn help

    since you don't have a DVD-Writer,the only way to copy the DVD is to convert the file to DivX format or SVCD format,but you will lose quality and get low sound.it's still possible to back it up.see this link http://www.dvdrhelp.com/convert.htm

    i cant directly copy a DVD because the commercial DVD disks that u can get (around here) are 4.7 and 5.1gb's most dvd movies are 9 and up, so yea, u can rip it into many formats but the most popular are DIVX, VCD, SVCD, xvid, but to get the closest u can to DVD quality u are going to have to split it up to 2 cd' or more

    Nah, his replies were a bit more well based and intelligent. Catch23 was kind of fun sometimes, but a pain in the ass. I kinda miss him, but if we were to get him back, I'd want to get rid of him and his monkey drum avatar :p

    If you have enough harddrive space, you could copy the dvd to you hadrdrive and mount it as a virtual drive. see:
