What would be a good DVD recording software?  I like the DVDXTREME, but I don't like the ripper free part.  I want to be able to make an exact clone of any DVD I want to.

even dvdxcopy degrades the picture to fit it onto one disk. the older version (if you can find it) allowed you to put the movie onto two disks and keep the resolution. i guess sony and philips now are releasing new drives and media in july that are dual-layered so you can do exact copies without degrading picture.

The problem with dual-layer drives is the high cost of media - it'll take a while before the prices come down.

I have the non-SATA version of that drive and am very satisfied with it.  I also have a few othe WD 120's and they work well.

GIVE NO POINTS TO THIS POST PLEASE.

I agree with Callandor's recommendation.  DVD Decrypter is a very good freeware solution for decrypting DVDs.  Look here for information straight from the source: http://www.dvddecrypter.com/

Two completely unrelated questions for the price (points) of one?  Hmmm...maybe I'm just too new around here to understand.
