Copy a DVD-9 to DVDR with DVDXPlatinum

This guide shows you how to Copy a DVD-9 movie to DVDR with X Software's DVDXPlatinum. DVDXPlatinum give you the option of a simple or Advanced backup. The simple option however, just loads DVDXPress. We have a guide for DVDXPress at AfterDawn here, so we will not be covering DVDXPress in this guide.

Introduction & Requirements

DVDXPlatinum - You will need to purchase DVDXPlatinum for this guide.
DVD Decrypter - This is needed to rip your DVD's to your Hard Disk Drive and remove copy protection.

Please make sure that you have installed and activated DVDXPlatinum correctly and also rebooted your computer afterwards. Please make sure that you have enough space on your Hard Drive for this backup process (15GB is safe). If you are trying to backup a copy of a retail movie you bought, it may be protected with CSS (Content Scrambling System). In some countries, like the United States, it is legal to make a backup copy of a movie your purchased but it is illegal to sell or distribute software that can circumvent copy protection mechanisms, like CSS, therefore DVDXGold cannot backup DVD's with CSS protection. However, you can use other programs such as DVD Decrypter to rip your DVD's first to your Hard Drive with the CSS protection removed. This way, DVDXGold can then read the unencrypted files directly from your Hard Drive. Therefore the first step in this guide will be ripping the DVD with DVD Decrypter.
