If u are referring to a movie, then you will have problems with built in protection. There are software packages out there which are good at bypassing these protections but it is finding them.

You cannot simply copy DVd films - they are manufactured in a double layer format which writeable DVDs do not reproduce.

Therer is an excellent article on this in April Computer Buyer.

dual layer DVD's are no-problem,of course they have to be split across 2 discs,

id recommend 'DVD X Copy',its not cheap,but works very well.

and if it still doesnt fit click here

"If the movie fits to one DVD-R after the extras have been removed, there's no need for compressing the movie itself. But if the movie has to be compressed,this program will make it fit exactly on one blank DVD-R"
