Secondly, regardless of the legaility of your software, it is and remains completely illegal to copy copy-protected discs, and it is indeed also illegal to remove any form of copy protection, including CSS and Macrovision; at least, in this country. The software may be legal, but you are suggesting a completely illegal use thereof. Shame on you.
Ok you have software envy so download and keep the software forever here is the reg: copy and paste.

Anyone NOT like this? TRY IT. Free for life.
I came with a primer for noob's, not to debate that Linux OS makers remove the ability to play a CSS encoded DVD, have tofind a CSS decoder... yet PC XP OS and similar MAY. I am shocked that product is sold as it is for the PC. PERIOD, anyway a small Primer from Best Buy. YOU MAY copy FOR YOURSELF at no cost to others any DVD for a backup. PER THE LAW. I mentioned the one I did because there are two popular ones that don't work well, all legal, for your use it is illegal to "rip" a DVD and sell it even for a penny.
I have NO affiliation with ANY PRODUCTS mentioned except I use em!!!!!!
And no affiliatiion with Best Buy. I consider flashing possibly illegal as well others pay for it(THE REAL DRIVE) but I live and let live!!!
However your FLAME attack was reported and WAY OFF topic. Don't throw rocks if you live in GLASS HOUSE. I am by far a child. The following is to explain especially DVD-RAM.
So, what's up with all the different formats like DVD+R/+RW and DVD-R/-RW?
When you start thinking about buying a DVD Recorder, those different formats can seem a bit confusing. But don't let them throw you, because once you settle on a DVD Recorder, it becomes fairly simple. Honest. The "plus" and "minus" formats are alternative recording formats used by different manufacturers, simple as that. Neither format (+ or -) is superior to the other. Standard DVD-R or DVD+R discs are of the record-once variety, so they cannot be re-recorded. And the "RW" format simply means rewritable; in other words you can use these discs over and over, erasing them in between.
Then what is DVD-RAM?
DVD-RAM (Random Access Memory) is a rewritable format that was designed to be a reliable storage and recording solution for multimedia, both data and video. DVD-RAM offers advantages over other rewriteable formats (DVD-RW and DVD+RW) in that DVD-RAM discs can be re-recorded an estimated 100,000 times vs. an estimated 1,000 times for DVD-RW and DVD+RW. To achieve this reliability, the media is often enclosed in a cartridge, which must be recorded and played upon a DVD-RAM compatible recorder, player or drive. Also, because DVD-RAM is a much faster format, it can provide some neat tricks, such as "chasing playback". This feature comes in handy if you're recording a TV show, for example, and would like to begin watching it before the recording is finished. With DVD-RAM and chasing playback you can watch the DVD from the beginning while simultaneously continuing to record.
What you really need to know about DVD recording formats:
For most people, the most important thing regarding DVD recording is to ensure compatible playback. And the key to successful playback is to remember that DVD recorders and players will record and play only in the formats that they support (either DVD-R/-RW, DVD+R/+RW or DVD-R/RAM and, in the case of Multiformat DVD Recorders, both the "plus" and "minus" formats). For example, a DVD+RW disc will not play on a DVD-R/-RW Player or Recorder and vice versa. But a Multiformat DVD Recorder will support both plus and minus formats.
