Hi, I'm Noah, and I'm going to show you how to copy a protected DVD. Now, keep in mind that it is illegal to copy a DVD to which you don't have the rights to, but if, say, you've purchased a movie and you're somebody who tends to scratch up their CDs or...and DVDs a lot, then you might want to make a backup copy for in case that ever happens and your original is unreadable. To copy a protected DVD, you'll need a special program like DVDShrink, which you can find at www.dvdshrink.org. This program allows you to decrypt the DVD and bypass its protection. But however, it is not a burning program in itself, meaning that to actually make a copy onto another DVD of your protected DVD which you're trying to copy, you'll need another burning software like, for example, Nero. However, Nero, in itself, or other normal burning programs won't allow you to copy a protected DVD, which is why you will need a program like DVDShrink to bypass that protection. A similar program is AnyDVD, which is made by SlySoft. However, unlike DVDShrink, this program is not free and you will have to order it.
