Making backup copies of DVD's contravenes most DMCA laws so there's little to no chance of DVD ripping tools being included in any Windows distro

dvdshrink (no longer actively developed but still very good and easy to use)

dvddecrypter

You'll need about 10-20 gigs of HDD space. Most of your DVD's are Dual layer (8.5gb) so you'll need to compress them to regular DVD size (4.5gb) which these programs will do. Note both are freeware

your computer probably came with sonic record now, or nero that can pretty much accomplish the task.

will that get by css on most dvd's? I've tried that previously and neros won't let me touch anything with css

Note: seems like it won't

refer to this note in your link

NOTE: This is NOT a guide to copying DVDs. This is a guide to using Nero to burn pre-authored DVD's. If you need to learn to copy DVDs then try one of the guides below...

I tried copying a DVD in Linux with both K3b, including the "k3b-extras-nonfree" package, and simply using the "dd" command from the prompt. Both fail, with K3b saying it can't copy an encrypted DVD. dd can read the first 2.3 MB or so then fails with an "input/output error." Since dd treats the input as a raw stream of bits, the fact that it can't read the disc suggests it's pretty unlikely you can copy a DVD without ripping it. I'm sure I'd have no problem ripping the episodes to files with mencoder since I have libdvdcss installed. But that process is actually "playing" the DVD and capturing the output, not making a bit-for-bit copy of the DVD onto an identical medium.

You tried DVD Decrypter and it didn't work? What was the error message?

I was missing that scourge of Hollywood, libdvdcss. Now k3b (with the aforementioned "non-free extras") is more than happy to copy the DVD.

I was surprised I didn't have libdvdcss installed. I just assumed it was a dependency of Livna's mplayer or xine builds and would have installed along with them. I now recall that mplayer is monolithic and has no dependencies (see the discussion elsewhere here about using mplayer on a memory stick). I've built mplayer from source, and it has every library it needs in the source-code tree except, apparently, libdvdcss.

Nevertheless Livna does distribute libdvdcss directly as an rpm, and once that's installed, DVDs are open books.

Is the disc in good condition? no scratches etc etc. Clean?

It is more than likely a CRC error. Cyclic Redundancy Check, meaning that sector is stuffed if it keeps getting stuck there.

Clonedvd with anydvd work the best from all the ones I've tried. They are not free though, but you can use them on a trial and see what they do.
