circumvent the copy-protection

hi

I'd like to create backups from some copy protected DVD, only for my private use.

Does it work this way to circumvent the copy-protection?

# dd if=/dev/dvd of=/tmp/backup.iso

and then burn backup.iso on an empty DVD.

Works for some copy protection mechanisms, but not for all of them.

Shalom Chis,

A dvd slug costs a few dollars.

Try it out. It is likely to work.

Hello.

Tools like vobcopy shall help - it will decrypt them provided you have the right libdvdread library.
