If you want to copy movie, you have to use some lossy compression software (i.e. loss of quality). Both Nero CD/DVD burning and Roxio Digital Media 7 have the component for this purpose.
However, do not even think of copying DVD movies which are copy protected. Firstly, it is illegal. Copying even for "backup" purpose is illegal. Secondly, you cannot copy without special softwares. The use of a special software to copy copy-protected materials is ILLEGAL.
If you want to copy copy-protected movies, do not ask question here.
