It's easy and this will also allow you to burn yourself backup copies (which is in fact not illegal unless you sell the copies, however breaking a disks RCE and/or copy protectioon can be illgeal depending on where you live) So lets get started...

As a note - there will be an update at some point in the future but for now this is a massively out of date instructable.

Step 1: Get the download

Now for Ripper programs I personal use super DVD Decrypter because it removes all copy protection, regions and can make ISO's for direct burn to disc...
http://dvddecrypter.org.uk/ - unfortunately the project is down for whatever reasons but here's the mirror site.

for macs you can use Mac the ripper thanks to LasVegas for that little bit of knowledge

DVD Fab is also a good <a href="http://www.phoenixsoftwares.com/DVD-Ripper.html">DVD Ripper</a> for free.
Hey mate, i have the first part the ripping!<br/><strong>But, i cant convert them or get tehm on a dvd to watch?</strong><br/>Can you write another link were we can get free burning software for this sort of thing, <br/><br/>i tried the one you said but it has some shitty watermark on it, and wants me to buy it :(<br/>
ok then if you rip direct to ISO files with copy protection removed you'll have a disc on file, you can keep them like this and use a virtual drive or CDXPburner pro which is freeware mentioned in here, there's no need to convert file for copying DVDs, I havn't noticed any watermarks in mine, if it's the decrypter then try ddvd fab as velvet elvis suggests, mine doesn't so it but i donwloaded a long while ago when copying wasn't a big deal but was big money. sorry about taking sol long to reply the comment never appeared until today in my new comments box...
f you figured out how to rip the dvd with dvd decrypter then thats all you need to burn the image. on the dvd decrpter menu you go to mode/iso/write. then select your image and insert the iso file you want. you dont need to have separate programs. also ive found dvd shrink to be effective in making iso images smaller than the original. you can even make images of the just the main movie no menus.

To rip DVD to other video and audio formats is very easy. And what you need is just a DVD Ripper program. <br/>What I am using is a popular DVD Ripper program: <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.pavtube.com/dvd_ripper/">Pavtube DVD Ripper</a>. <br/>It is used to convert DVD to many other video and audio formats, such as AVI, MPEG, WMV, MOV, MP4, MP3 compatible with iPod, iPhone, PSP, Zune.<br/><br/>I prefer the progam as its after-sale service is good. Last month, I encountered a problem and sent it to them, they replied and solved my problem on time.<br/><br/>So I think when choosing an appropriate program for ourselves, we should consider not only its quality, functions, but also its after-sale service. <br/>

I used both dvdfab and the one you suggest. When i used fab it gave me the full movie and an ISO file. But it said: Device error 339973 Failure reserving DVD-R Track Cannot Write Medium ? Incompatable Format. So i tried the one you gave, thinking that the dvdfab wasnt right, and the temporary one said it was burning but nothing happened. Please help..
That's quite odd, it worked well for me but sadly my burner has died so it's harder to tell what's wrong, if it's ripping to the ISO file then it might just be an odd way of saying that, also check where it's ripping to by defauly it's just C:/ so if you never changed it you'll find all your files there
thanks for the info on the burning. I read on some forum somebody who had exactly the same problem. Apparently it is the DVD i was using. I'll have to find the correct one
Ah right, I never noticed since my burner was a little older and just burnt to anything in its path...
DVD Decrypter doesn't handle some of the newer protection methods.<br/>DVDFab HD Decrypter is a good alternative, and it's updated regularly.<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.dvdfab.com/free.htm">http://www.dvdfab.com/free.htm</a><br/>
cheers, haven't had any probs so far but i'll add this one to the list

i'll do one on that too lol
There's a better <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/EQ0L3E0G2UEQZJIVJ3/">Instructable here</a>.<br/>
oww that hurt lol, though you might just have a point
this is an excellent thing.there are many good products and fre programs that do these things,i have been doing this for 10+ years and have used almost all utils.right now im using apollo it seems to be the fastest and less prone to creating "coasters".ashampoo also has some good ones,download trial softwares and see witch one is best for you.also when burning remember to shut all unnecessary progs. so you don't have skips in playback.as some of these use max mem and can pause the write.also use good media and make sure your firmware on your burner is current any help i can give drop me a line.
To do the same on the Mac, use <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.mactheripper.org/">MacTheRipper</a>. It's a one shot utility for removing all region (RPC), RCE (if present) and Macro-Vision encoding. <br/>
Hand brake is good too. If you want to rip the menus you drive-in.
Yes... I wrote the Instructable on <a rel="nofollow" href="http://www.instructables.com/id/EB25XNFSSPEZ7C9GTQ/">HandBrake</a>...<br/>
