Now what really gets me annoyed is the fact that I have a PlayStation 3 I can’t copy the game for safe keeping as its protected. If you fiddle with your machine I’m told it makes the machine overheat. Now I don’t mind paying for my games but it does piss me off if I through no fault of mine the disk gets a fault in it and I have to go a purchase a new DVD! that stinks. I know this is off topic but this is why we get people in the first place burning illegal copies of the DVD in the first place.

I agree with this statement below.

Source: http://www.copyright.gov/legislation/dmca.pdf
This is the governmental summary of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. In applicable part (summarized) the Act prohibits (among many other things) the software used to circumvent ->access<- to copyrighted materials, but not the copying of materials that you can legally access.

This is a quote from the applicable portion of the summary:
"Since copying of a work may be a fair use under appropriate circumstances, section 1201 does not prohibit the act of circumventing a technological measure that prevents copying. By contrast, since the fair use doctrine is not a defense to the act of gaining unauthorized access to a work, the act of circumventing a technological measure in order to gain access is prohibited. Section 1201 proscribes devices or services that fall within any one of the following three categories:
-1- they are primarily designed or produced to circumvent;
-2- they have only limited commercially significant purpose or use other than to circumvent; or
-3- they are marketed for use in circumventing."

You can also read the full text here http://www.copyright.gov/title17/circ92.pdf where you can find the applicable portion beginning on page 250.

I see nothing that prohibits copying copyrighted material UNLESS it's done for the purpose of unauthorized distribution. If I missed it, please direct me to the appropriate section or page number.

I have lots of my own store bought DVD,s Videos from old days bluerays etc. Now if they are mine as far as I can find out as long as I use them for personal display not publick display and want to save the original from getting marked then go for it.

This program is crap there is better ones I personally use that contray to statements made here can be bought from online genuine sellers and their products are well known and respected. The programs are not cheap but do the job perfectly.

Well after reading many of the comments I thought I would give this giveaway a try anyways. I first tried and older movie called Meteor with Sean Connory and tried a rip with this software. The movie ripped in about 1 hr and 12 minutes but the program froze and stopped ripping just when there was 8 minutes left in the movie. I dont know if it was because of copyright protection, A glich in the software, or mabey something with the disk as a fine scratch or something. So I gave it a another go and Tried a new program called Spartacus a newer TV series from HBO and Stars. The first episode ripped in about 40 minutes with no problems at all. The sound is in sync with the movie and the quality is not bad at all.

I guess I should mention these rips were from regular dvds not Blueray or high def. The file on the Spartacus episode was aprox 670 megs in size and was ripped in Regular mpeg4 Avi format. The software worked for me as advertised.

I am looking forward to trying a few rips in other formats such as SWF Flash and Mobile device for my android tablet.

I also downloaded one of the rippers that Giovanni suggested, The wonderfox ripper and will do a comparison as well. Thanks Giovanni for the suggestions.

No Complaints from me
Thanks Giveaway of the day and MaeMedia

@ PTFLynn - Try either DVD Videosoft Free Studio or wait for PavTube BluRay Ripper (works with DVDs, too) to come back around as a GOTD offering (although I'm so happy with PavTube, I'm going to spring the $49 for the regular license).

Both do a good job of converting, but I use PavTube all the time to put movies on MY Visual Land pad.

No affiliation or anything--I just know a good product when I see it.

I stay away from those developers who cannot use proper English. Also, the market is flooded with free alternatives that work much better than this offering. Thanks anyway GOTD!!

Although this software only allows 10 free uses before you are required to buy it, I have found it to be superior to any other, especially the UI:

Swamp Thing (#9), the Digital Millennium Copyright Act is part of US law, not internationally recognized. The world still isn't an empire governed by Uncle Sam.
In my country you are entitled to make copies of movies for yourself or even give them to friends.
So without overpassing DRM this software is useless to make (legal) backup copies of movies you purchased.
It's useful, however, to rip your own DVDs to other file formats, as stated above. It does the job just as claimed, so thumbs up from me.
Thanks to GOTD and the developer.

I am not going to download this due to 1) negative comments from people who have already installed and tried it, and 2) I have had EXCELLENT results from using Magic DVD Copier from a recent GOTD. Magic DVD Copier has done a terrific job copying movies from the DVD's I have already bought (The Avengers, Battleship, etc.) to my PC so I can watch without needing the DVD - and copy time is brief, usually between 15 and 20 min. depending on the movie size.

I did notice that Magic DVD Copier is having a 60% off sale now (http://www.magicdvdripper.com/), and that it's for version 7.1.2 - my GOTD version is 7.1.1, so if anyone wants to pay, now might be a good time. Or, just wait until it comes back around to GOTD.

Giovanni et al

Your info for alternatives is much appreciated. I need help with the following.

I want to copy a few of my DVDs - first onto my Laptop / PC, and then transfer them onto a 32GB micro SC card, to view the movies on my Visual Land Android based Tablet while travelling. Any suggestions? Will one of the alternatives you mentioned be better than the others for this task? What format will I need to convert to, in order to view on the Tablet?

Thank you all for your contributions to GAOTD. I don't post often, but I am a frequent lurker!!

Ashraf noted that today's GOTD "*Rips very slowly"... I don't know if he's talking about the copy speed or the conversion to another format.

Just general info that folks may/may not find useful, there's a speed limit, a sort of speed governor built into the firmware of many [most?] DVD drives that kicks in when it detects a video DVD. What that means is that you can have a 4X drive or a 20X, and both will only read a video DVD disc at the same, slow speed -- just fast enough to play the movie.

One cure is MediaCodeSpeedEdit [ http://ala42.cdfreaks.com/MCSE/ ]. There's a lot of discussion & info over in the club.myce.com forums [they're linked on the app's home page - the ala42 url] including lists of drives it works with & often more specifics tailored for different drives. What it does in a nutshell is modify [there are several options] a copy of the software you use to flash a drive's firmware. Important Note: flashing the firmware of a DVD or Blu-Ray drive may brick the drive -- it usually doesn't, but every drive manufacturer will give you that warning on their firmware download pages.

At any rate copying data off a DVD or Blu-Ray disc is normally not software dependent -- something like DVDFab might bypass the DRM etc., but the amount of time it takes to copy that data depends on the read speed of your optical drive & write speed of your hard drive, barring any interference from stuff like AV software. SO if you're bothered by your drive's artificially slow speed, or want to do something like change the way your drive handles a specific brand of disc, check out MediaCodeSpeedEdit along with info on using it with your particular drive.

If it helps at all with the discussion of what is/isn't legal, I believe one of the central issues is the DVD [& Blu-Ray] structure or spec plus the design of the various DRM measures -- if you design & then (C) & patent a widget, I can't buy 1 of your widgets, take it apart & make a copy of it, & I certainly can't start selling my copies on store shelves where it would compete with your widget. Yes, reverse engineering & copying of designs goes on all the time, & you have the patent wars e.g. pitting Apple against Samsung, but nonetheless the courts in many countries have sided with the owners of the DVD & Blu-Ray specs & their methods of DRM, so fair use may apply to the content, but not whatever methods you have to use to access or re-purpose that content. And the full specs to that stuff is not published -- you have to pay a large amount of $, if they'll sell to you, & sign a binding NDA -- so the only way to find out how it works is reverse engineering.

I think the legal case that's maybe most often pointed to involves Real, who paid for, licensed the DVD spec etc., then released a DVD ripper that would convert video on DVDs into their format etc. -- they were immediately taken to court & had to stop sales of the software. Today AFAIK any DVD &/or Blu-Ray copy or ripping apps come out of countries where it's difficult if possible for anyone is the US or EU to touch them, e.g. SlySoft, makers of AnyDVD is located in Antigua and Barbuda, while Fengtao Software, makers of DVDFab etc. are in Beijing.


Tying into that above and per their site, MAEMedia, GmbH, has an office or rep at least in Redmond, WA, while the GmbH would indicate a German (or at least EU) company [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gesellschaft_mit_beschr%C3%A4nkter_Haftung ]. Just speculation on my part, but perhaps that has something to do with, as Whiterabbit reported, Goodisc Movie DVD Copy not copying discs with DRM?

Visited the website.

Or attempted to.

BitDefender came back with a warning about cloud security blocking the site for having been a virus-source (typically due to poor choice of banner ads and/or shady ad companies).

Not even bothering, only needed to see the first five or six comments to know what my result is. Pass.

Yes, it does not mention what kind of DRM protection is able to bypass.

Android or Windows Phone are not supported...heck, not everyone has Apple devices on his/her arsenal!!

Cannot make ISO image!!!

There's no mention about this program on Softpedia and any reliable review has been published on the net (maybe bcs is a brand new product?)

40 bucks for a poor app like this?? Maybe on the moon, come on.... LOL!!

Today's offering: I was able to get it to work with some"dinking around".
I made a mpg copy of an older DVD (Starman).
Took approx. an hour. The resulting file looks ok on my computer, the small portion I checked.
Is this program worth full price? No.
Can you get it to work? If your lucky.
At least one of the free programs Ashraf recommended didn't work (Win X DVD Ripper Free) , message came up: buy the Platinum Edition to deal with DRM DVDs!
Too many issues. Thumbs Down.

#9 - Research "The BetaMax Decision". This is a legal precedent established before the DMCA. The movie and record companies have been fighting this loosing battle ever since.
The DMCA has never been effectively challenged in court because no individual has the money to fight the RIAA or the MPAA. Even they have given up prosecuting people for making copies for personal use.
They will, and should, prosecute pirates.
Off my soapbox. ;-)

Did not download this software, really have no need at all for it. However, did find an interest in the 'free' audio recording software.

Click on the link and ... nothing free, two paid for programs.

Interesting, the link said free... :( I'm not sure if this is GAotD coding, or the software manufacturer, but I honestly don't appreciate the 'deceptive' link.

A simply Google search answers the question of whether it is legal to copy DVDs or not.

Yes, a DVD owner can legally copy and back up their own store-bought DVDs. However, they must do so manually.

It is illegal to copy DVDs using manufactured software programs such as this one.

That's why you can only find programs such as this one on the Internet. They cannot be bought in any computer or department store in the USA.

It's called the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. It's a 60 second web search, people.

Quite pricey and dosen't do half of what it says.

Before the rest of the "tin foil hat" crowd starts up again...
it's illegal to SELL copies of movies, not to copy them for yourself !!

Hi John, re: your statement "If it were meant to copy dvd movies, I believe it’d be illegal". is not the case.

A owner of a purchased legal copy of any movie can make a back up copy for 'personal use'; where it becomes illegal is if you create backups to give away or sell as boot legs.

After installation, which went fine, I tried copying several movies from the latest releases for example, Taken 2, Hells Warrior: Berserker to older titles such as Alfie, Dead Heads, & Alien v Hunter but none were recognised. My DVD/Blue Ray player is relatively new and works fine with other similar programs such as Magic DVD copier (a previous giveaway)

There are similar softwares such as Starburn that do the same as today's giveaway and are free, so I think the price tag is a little on the steep side, especially considering the state of the economy at the moment.

There's no onboard help menu. I'm not always online so it would be helpful to include an offline help document as well as the link to your help page on your web site. Thank you.

Other Suggestions:

1) ... Add Blue Ray capabilities

2) ... Include different skins so that users can match with their desktop themes

3) ... Include a larger preview window or a seperate viewer

4) ... Enable the user to expand the GUI
