Most DVDs are designed to prevent you from making copies. The first preventative measure is encryption. Commercial DVD titles are often encrypted, which prevents you from either copying them to your hard drive, or if you manage to do so, being able to play the resulting files.

There are three most common forms of DVD copy protection namely Macrovision, Content Scrambling System (CSS), and more recently Sony ARccOS. Most DVD burning software does not work on a copy protected DVD. For example; Nero users are forced to find a third party DVD ripper if they want to burn a copy protected DVD.

To remove the protection from the purchased movie DVD, DVDSmith Movie Backup (http://www.dvdsmith.com/) will help you to remove protection and make clones of your DVD movies to the hard drive either completely with all extras or just the main movie only. The backup speed is super (only about 15 minutes for DVD-5 or 25 minutes for DVD-9). DVDSmith Movie Backup is a freeware.
