Hi all, New to these boards. I just bought the ez dupe dvd coach for my wife thinking it'd be a hassle-free way for her to make archive copies of here dvds without having to mess with any codecs and software on her pc and having to try to explain any of tat to her. But now I fell like the one duped. No where did it say b4 buying it that it wouldn't copy "protected" dvds. and sure enough it doesn't. I was wondering if there was some "unofficial" way to d it with this device. I guess the company didn't want to be sued? But come on, I just wanted to make fair use back up dvds of what she already has. I really like the idea for my wife of one copying button copying. It does fine for commercial CDs. And you don't need to use a PC. I am hoping to avoid hooking it up to a PC. I want it to do what it claimed: copy any dvd without a PC.... any ideas?
