    Try DVD Shrink for a good free software and will do about 75% of all movies.


    DVD Cloner seems to work pretty good as well.


    Nero for everything else.

    Hi to all!
    WinX DVD Ripper is the best one in my view and, use it regularly.
    you can also use DVDShrink, HandBreak, Format Factory and, DVDFab HD Decrypter. They are excellent application to copy DVDs. You can find reviews of these software here: http://bikkimalla.com.np/top-5-best-free-dvd-ripper-software-for-windows/

    dvdfab is what I use, it comes with a 30 day free trial. Very easy to use, many different programs for different copies/transfers and tech support. dvdfab.com

    Elijah has hit the nail in the head, DVD Shrink is what I would recommend for you and it also allows you to remove, unwanted extras from the DVD you are ripping.

    DVDSmith Movie Backup is a freeware, http://www.dvdsmith.com/dvdsmith-movie-backup.html Windows version and Mac version are available for downloading. It enables users to backup DVD on hard drive as DVD Folder. Can not say it is the best of all DVD copy freeware but it is a pretty good backup software.

      Freemake is awesome. It's easy to use, and does a pretty good job. Oh, and it's 100% free.

    Handbrake! It's what everyone uses to burn/rip the highest quality DVD's, it works incredibly well and has massive amounts of options.

    Jeremy, I assume you mean video DVDs (as in the things you can watch on the telly). Most of them are copy protected by one or two mechanisms. If your DVDs are not, you should be able to use DVD Shrink.

    Hello everyone.

    I agree with what Alan Wade wrote in the comment, and I add, Doom9 dot org is worth visiting this site, it will find many other interesting tools.

    DVD Shrink is by far your best option if you are having a problem burning films. Apart from the copy protection, a lot of films are burnt in dual layer which means they can be up to 8.6 gig in size. If you are trying to burn that to an ordinary DVD then obviously it wont go. DVD Shrink will compensate for the film size and allow you to cut out parts of the DVD that isnt needed like language files or trailers without any fuss at all. It will show you the compression ratio before you start for you to review.

    If you want burning software for home movies and the like then there are a multitude of good free burning software available. Just Google 'Best Free Burning Software' to see what is available.

        does not however simply copy DVD to DVD

    Some DVD's comes with a restriction access, so if you copy the DVD, it will display message or become corrupt. The other condition is when you just doing copy and paste from dvd you jsut get the list of the file in the dvd which is just a link file. If it is related to the first issue about copying restriction, i think there is not much software option for this. But if it not an issue of access restriction, just search in the google "grab DVD content", and you will find of what you are looking for.

    DVD Shrink would be the best free option. If only one has you stumped, download Slysoft AnyDVD. It has a free 21 day trial and is probably the best solution out there. Give it a shot. I bet it'll work.

    DVD Shrink. If that isn't working for you, you'll need a program to decrypt it. If just one dvd has you stumped, download the trial of Slysoft AnyDVD. It's probably the best solution out there and the trial lasts for 21 days. You can pretty much bet that AnyDVD will work for you. Best of luck.

    Depending on your needs, and which dvd's they are, you could use DVDCatalyst for portable device formats but does not handle Disney cartoons properly, HandBrake which has been around for many years, WinXDVD (and if you go to MajorGeeks' Facebook fan page now, you can get a free key to the Platinum edition), DVDFab, DVD Shrink which can reduce the size of the dvd while keeping all features available on the dvd, etc. For more information and download links on the popular ones, and most that I have mentioned, you can go here: http://www.top5freeware.com/top-5-free-dvd-ripper-software

    With all the different types of copy protection, one program may not be able to copy what another one does, so getting a few would be recommended. I have used most of the ones listed, and came across problems with a few dvd's, but overall have had good experiences and quality. For better compatibility and better ability to get around the copy protections, purchasing a good dvd ripper might be necessary. WinX DVD Ripper Platinum works well, and as I said, you can get (win) a free key for the platinum edition for free, no strings attached and since they don't have many people entering the contest right now, you probably will get the key, I would go the fan page of MajorGeeks on Facebook to get one. https://www.facebook.com/majorgeeksdotcom/app_121677374624060
