Copy-protected DVD

Folks, I don't frequent this forum, and I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right place, but I'll give it a shot.

I recently purchased a set of DVDs (a Showtime Series.) The way I see it, I've paid for the show and not the media, which should allow me to make copies for my own personal use, right?

Anyhoo...Disk 4 is giving me a message similar to "Disk is copy-protected, etc......" The error is generated both in DVD Shrink and Sonic/Roxio. Not the same error, but the attempt to create an ISO fails nonetheless.

Are there any free programs that I can use to bypass this irritant so that I can make a back-up copy of my not-so-inexpensive DVDs? Thanks much!!!

Life's more painless for the brainless.

AnyDVD has a free 21 day trial. I don't know if the trial version has any restrictions.

You can use DVDFab HD Decrypter. It is completely free ( no time limitation ) and it works wonders.
