DVD code protector

Postby ajm4207 » Sun Mar 07, 2021 10:58 pm

I can copy dvds by connecting a DVD player to my DVD player/recorder, recording the DVD onto the recorder hard drive then dubbing it to a DVD.
How can I do this when the source DVD is copy protected?
With thanks

Well, there is software out there for breaking this protection but -- well, the reason discs are protected are to guard against this very thing! Duplicating commercial videos for any kind of distribution is bootlegging.

My first question is why do you want to do this? Like Steve says, duplicating commercial DVDs is illegal.
