VirtualBox, an open-source virtualisation suite provided through Oracle, is capable of running an independent computer, or virtual machine, within a closed virtual environment on a user's computer. It is possible to load, and run, software like AnyDVD on a virtual machine running within VirtualBox.

Understanding VirtualBox

Using VirtualBox, it is possible to build virtual machines inside of a user's computer. While there are many advantages to using VirtualBox, be aware of the way the VirtualBox interacts with external devices. When a virtual machine connects to an actual USB, it replaces any current connections governed by the actual computer.

AnyDVD Within VirtualBox

Several considerations should be taken when operating a program like AnyDVD within a virtual machine. Identify the external device that you will use with AnyDVD and ensure that connecting to it from the virtual machine will not disrupt the operation of your actual computer.


While SlySoft states that its software is capable of copying copyright-protected DVDs, you should check applicable piracy laws in your area to ensure that you are not committing an act of piracy.
