Hi there -- that's slightly different from the OP.
Incidentally after I've cloned the DVD's I can of course re-create them (minus Regional encoding and CSS encryption if necessary).
Sometimes you want reasonable backups of the originals - XVID isn't that great if you need to watch on a LARGE LCD TV.
Using a backup method of cloning DVD's your DVD's will play nicely on standard DVD players too and with decent upscaling will be nearly as good as Blu Ray even on LARGE LCD
Of course for DVD's > 4.7 GB you'll need the DVD Authoring software to re-create a PHYSICAL DVD Dual Layer (DVD-9) if you want to fit the movie with all the extras etc on to a single disc.
Clone DVD / Full DVD create ISO's of dual layer discs -- no prob and Alcohol 52% mounts these just like the original DVD -- when you play it you get everything just like the original DVD MINUS the regional encoding and CSS encryption if you want
You can of course leave the DVD regionally locked / encrypted but why on earth would you want to do that anyway.
