I use DVD decrypter 3.5.4.0 to copy and write DVD's. it's an old version but it works like a charm. They tell me DVDfabdecrypter is the newer version.

To copy a DVD to your hard-drive; click "mode" (top toolbar) "ISO" then choose "read". Choose a destination of course. (click the folder opposite "please select folder"). Then click the play button at the bottom.

To burn a DVD; click "mode" > "write", Click the folder under source, opposite "please select file" to locate the ISO file you just made. Double click the ISO image (ignore the mds file)
insert a blank DVD and press the play button, and your all set. This is assuming that your ISO image will fit on a standard DVD. You may need a program to shrink it to fit a standard DVD. They say DVD shrink will work. Since I never copy protected DVD's I really can't tell you how to do it. I do a lot of legal on line trading. All the DVD's I copy are legal.

Redsox25 >> I was a bit confused with your post. Do you want to make/burn your own DVD with video files already on your computer or do you wan to COPY a DVD e.g make a copy of Spiderman?
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

DVDfabdecrypter might be better than Dvddecrypter for backing up newer DVD's. I backed up my grandaughters "Monster Inc" we bought for her. And I'm glad I did, because the original is ruined. She never puts DVD's back in the case.

Well 'ripping a DVD' is easy, get hold of DVD Shrink or as 12x48y said, DVD decrypter (older version). You'll have your DVD backed up in no time!

Im going to bring this thread back from the dead( ya for rhymes)
So i actually got my lazy ass around to doing this (wooot only 11 months) and i actually have another question (or maybe it was my original lol)...
Now that i have backed up my dvd, is there a way to play it on my computer? Right now its just a bunch of IFO, VOB, BUP, etc files...
THanks!
