Hi. I want to reedit some DVDs (select only chapters) but most are copy protected. Does anyone know any free software that allows to make copies of these DVDs. Thanks

I'm afraid what you are proposing is illegal and the rules of the Forum prohibit advising people on how to circumvent copyright material.

I have understood making copies of dvd you own for back up or re-editing is not illegal. It would be illegal if that was done for commercial purposes.
There are many programs (find them making a search in google but I wanted an opinion about the ones that are better to use and probably free).

The relevant bit is:-

"Indivuals who make a copy of a copyrighted DVD, CD or music file, whether for back-up or for use on another device such as an MP3 player, are committing a crime."

Let me see what does that leave that I can legally put on my MP3 player? Nothing, unfortunately the law is an ass in this case.
