Is there anyway to copy a DVD? Is there a ripping program out there that will do this?

I found two places that looked ?maybe? promising.
RecordNow Max 3.01 (found at download.com)
and www.dvdripping.nl

I do not think that copying DVDs is illegal. Remember the good old days of VHS and copying? That was not illegal. What makes it illegal is if you sell the tapes or charge people to view the tapes. There is no harm done if you do not profit from it!

Thanks for your help!

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

It's not illegal to make copies of something you already own. So if you purchased a DVD, you can rip it if you want. If you purchased a CD, you can rip it. You can't legally make copies of DVDs you rent or CDs you borrow. However, since people are making illegal copies of things like movies and music CDs, companies have started to implement copy protection which can prevent owners from making copies of media they already own.

Do a search on any engine for DeCSS. That will lead you to software, as well as many discussions on the issue of dvds, copy protection, etc. If you have a lot of time to kill, try the same search on Google groups
