copying copyrighted dvd's

This question may present moral/legal issues for some
members and if so, please ignore.

I recently purchased a liteon DVD reader/burner for the
sole purpose of copying DVD movies. I've come to realize
that most DVD movies are copyrighted and have had little
success in obtaining software that will enable me to copy
DVD movies.
To date, I've tried Nero, Roxio, PowerDVD, Sonic,
RecordNow and a add on software to work in conjuction
with the above mentioned softwares but still can not make
a full copy.
With the latest CSS override software I am able to cache
the movie but when it comes time to burn a 1hr 20min
movie to a 4.7GB DVD+R, it tells me that there is not
enough room on the target disc.

Can anyone recommend a software or combination of
softwares to copy copyrighted DVD movies?

No! This is a Microsoft sponsored newsgroup and your
question is entirely inappropriate since it has nothing to
do with Windows XP issues.

keep an eye on the copyright laws in your country when you are actually
copying your dvd's ..
look into programs like dvddecrypter ( freeware , that copies the content of
dvd to your harddisk with protection removed ) and smartripper ...
those do the trick ... check www.doom9.org to get some
guidelines/instructions ....

Grin. That's an old trick first done by the game makers.

No, most commercial DVDs are recorded in DS 9, allowing up to 15 GB per disc
(dual layer). Home recorders only support DS5, allowing 4.7 GB per disc.
The MPEG-2 codec for DVD cannot compress more than about 1 hour at full
quality onto a 4.7GB disc.

Isn't that a double sided disk, dual layer? Also, I understand that
recorders are being made that are able to copy and record in that
format.

No, double sided and dual layer are two completely separate and unrelated
things. A DVD can be single layer single sided, single layer double sided,
and dual layer single sided. I have yet to see a dual layer dual sided
disc...the precision needed would be beyond most consumer grade home DVD
players...especially the $30 WalMArt blue light specials that seem to be so
popular.

The county jail in my county has satelite TV, free phone calls, an
Internet cafe with free coffee [they call that job training], and
catered in food.
