First, it’s necessary to remove Commercial DVD protections and restrictions

To prevent from unfair or illegal use of DVD content,every commercial DVD is armed with one or more Copy protections. However, according to Court Backs Dismissal of Digital Copyright Claim, it is not illegal to backup your own DVDs.

Here are some of commonly used DVD encryption technologies, which hold you back from backup DVD smoothly.E.g.Content Scramble System (CSS), it creates scrambled DVD content to protect the DVDs information from piracy and the Region Protectionenforce region-based viewing restrictions.

And as for Sony ARccOS Protection, it is designed as an additional layer to be used in conjunction with CSS. This system deliberately creates corrupted sectors on the DVD disc, which cause majority of regular DVD copying software to produce errors.

You may also hear of Disney DVD Copy Protection equipped at the latest released DVDs. It disordered the DVD content to make users hardly locate the right title which contains the main part of the movie. Even though you trudged out to copy full DVD content, you will get about 50GB output file size and the out-of-order videos that are totally useless.

Do you also have DVDs above? In order to watch these Hot DVD movies on PC or portable devices such as iPad Air, iPad Mini 2, iPhone 5S/5C, Kindle Fire HDX, Google Nexus 5, Nexus 7, iPod 5 and more without advertisement in the beginning, all you need to do is to copy DVD main title according to the above steps. You can back up DVD main title to a single VOB file without the necessity of copying all content of DVD movie.

The most important merits can be summarized into two major points: time-saving and space-conserving.

Time-saving: save your time in both movie watching and DVD conversion. By copying the main movie title, you can get rid of watching advertisement that probably wastes several minutes in each movie. Moreover, full DVD copy costs nearly 20 minutes in average. WinX DVD Copy Pro, taken as an example, spends 5-10 minutes in producing a 1:1 DVD copy (depending on the CPU of computer and size of DVD). However, you need only 5-7 minutes to copy main DVD title with the same software, which saves about 10 minutes for you to copy a single DVD disc.

Space-conserving: save the room of your computer or portable device for storing the converted DVD video file. Generally, the capacities of DVD5 and DVD9 are 4.7 and 8.5G, respectively. That is to say, a complete D5 requires about 4.7G free space to either in case of backing up DVD to ISO image file, copying DVD to a single MPEG2 file or cloning DVD to VIDEO_TS folder. In comparison, copying DVD main title needs 4-4.5G free space. This space-occupying difference between full DVD copy and main title copy may be slight. But just imagine, what about copying 10 DVDs? Yes! It can reduce 7G space for you!

This number can even be multiplied immensely. According to statistics, 100+ complete D9 DVD movies can be stored in a 1TB hard disk. So, if backing up 100 DVDs on hard drive, you will cut down 70G storage space maximally.

Other Advantages of DVD Main Title Copy

However, there are many other detailed and trivial advantages of main DVD title copy:

1. Filter the unwanted parts of DVD: by copying main DVD title only, you can remove the unnecessary portions, including advertisement mentioned above, opening theme song, ending song, NG and tidbits, etc.

2. Make your video compact: you can copy your DVD without extras by only choosing main title copy. Thereby, you can have a DVD collection with more movies, and can head straight to the movie content without watching the endless ads, listening to the theme songs you are not into or awaiting the endless Cast of Characters. It is more convenient for the further edition of video.
