Copying DVDs has some dangers, especially in regards to bad sectors. Bad sectors are damaged portions of DVD data that occur during the copying process. Some DVD manufacturers put instructions on the DVD that create bad sectors during the copying process to prevent piracy. Although bad sectors will prevent the playing of a DVD, there are plenty of free software applications available that remove bad sectors from DVDs, allowing you to watch your burnt DVD without any hassle or cost.
