DVD X-Copy is great.  Try that.  http://www.dvdxcopy.com/default.asp?a=67339&PROMO=CommJunc&AID=10302277&PID=1123782

I feel it works the best... and is the easiest.

If you use DVD X-Copy Express, you can backup your movies just fine.

For help on this go to http://www.doom9.org and under the Guides link on the left then go to Ripping and there you will find a DVD Decrypter guide.

You may need to download ASPI drivers if you're running NT/2k/XP you can get these from http://www.ahead.de/en/631940720530689.html to force install the ASPI drivers (the rip will fail without them.)

Then load the files you've decrypted to your hard disk into the the VideoTS folder on the left of your screen in Nero 6 when you select burn DVD Movie in Nero 6 Burning ROM (don't use Express) and you're away!

I know this works as I've bought the exact same drive as you and have just usccessfully followed the above steps :)

I followed everything. I use DVD Decryptor to rip all the files into hard drive. I have all the VOB and INFO etc... in my Harddisc. I open the Nero 6 Burning ROM and copy all the files to the VIDEO_TS. The problem is it is exceeding the disc space (4.5GB). The DVD, which I am trying to take backup contains more than 6GB. I try to remove some files and make it 4.5 GB, but Nero is looking for those files. If I miss any one file, it is complaining.

would you please tell me how to compress all this file into one DVD  or
can you please tell me how to remove some file and create a DVD Movie Backup

it would be of great help.thank you

After using DVD Decrypter use DVD Shrink to shrink the files to fit onto a single DVD
