For those who backup their DVD movies, DVDFab Decrypter is a boon. DVDFab Decrypter removes almost any encryption from copy protected DVD movies. The software program is incredible simple. There is only one settings menu, you can set DVDFab Decrypter to automatically search for new updates. The menu also allows you to set your country code. When you are ready to decrypt, all you need to do is press the very conspicuous [Start] button. By default, the decrypted audio and video files will be saved to My Documents, while a temporary folder will be created in the root hardware (e.g. Local C: ). If you plan on burning the video files to a single layered DVD blank then you will need to shrink the files before burning. Since the files are already decrypted, DVD Shrink can easily shrink the files to fit. There you have it, a way to copy a DVD-9 to a DVD-5. The latest version is DVDFab Decrypter 188.8.131.52
Important: Backing up DVD movies is illegal in many countries, including the United States. Please find out your country's law pertaining to the backup of DVD movies.
