I am using XP with a dvd+rw and a DVD player, is it possible to copt DVD films

It should be possible but it will take its time.

...and sometime at that ;-)

The law is not my thing but in this case i believe it is illegal to copy DVD's. Also there will be copy protection on the disc, so a copy might not be possiible after all.

You will probably have to buy a software programme to do this, but as most DVD films are copy protected you'll find it difficult.

Also, it is usually illegal in the UK (not in most European countries or in the U.S), so don't expect much help in doing it.

If anyone responded to this thread giving details about how to copy DVDs would this not leave the Forum open to legal proceedings? Perhaps the FE would clarify this.

Have just re-read the Site Policy and YES it is forbidden to incite others to evade copyright laws.

Even ignoring legalities, be aware that a commercial DVD is over nine gigabytes. The capacity of a writable DVD is 4·7 GB.
