Hello

I want to copy a copy-protected DVD (video DVD not data). I was going to use a program I normally use, but since the DVD was copy protected, it would not work.

What should I use? What do you use?

Also, I am not a pirate!!! This happens to be a documentry on steam trains I am copying for my grandpa. It will not be resold or used in any way for unjust gain whatsoever.

*DVD* to copy it and then use *DVD* to make it onto a DVD iso, ready for burning.

Huh? This is still illegal - just because it's 'only a documentary on steam trains', or because it's for your grandpa, does not mean that pirating it is OK.

Its still copyrighted material, its illegal, that makes you a pirate bud, and thats against forum rules.

Well, if you didnt make it from your own recording, then burn it, then its probably illegal

Can't you just send him the DVD to watch then get it back later?

Not sure if this is the case here, but in the states its legal to back up a dvd, but not to break the copy protection

Sorry Guys.

I guess it is just the hypocrisy of it all that gets to me.

Most here copy and burn, yet we pretend it is all bad and don't really talk about it - let alone share with others how to do it properly :(
