  1. 1

    Get software for copying DVDs. Search online using the search words "DVD copy software." Try to find software that will make perfect copies with one click of your mouse. Some DVD copy software programs have a DVD ripper or a DVD decryption device that will disable the copy protection on the original DVD, allowing a flawless copy to be burned.

  2. 2

    Download or install a DVD ripper program onto your computer if the DVD copy software that you have doesn't include the DVD ripper. When the ripper is installed, it will automatically become part of the copy software, which will aid you in copying the DVDs.

  3. 3

    Use a DVD decrypter if you don't want to use DVD copying software. A DVD decrypter will allow you to copy and decrypt DVDs to your computer's hard drive. From there, you can either watch your movie from your computer or burn it to a DVD by using another software program called DVD Shrink. This method is effective, but not as easy as using the DVD copy software method outlined above.
