Q: I know that Handbrake hasn't supported DVDs with CSS encryption on any commercial DVDs. But it's supposed to be able to work with protected titles with VLC downloaded. But after I downloaded VLC, it still won't rip any of my store-bought titles. It shouldn't be so hard. Any other protected DVD copy software to recommend?

A: Even though it is not allowed to rip any copy-protected titles in many countries, we still think it's OK to copy a legally-owned DVDs for more flexible playback. For that, we need a DVD ripper. Handbrake itself is a video transcoder, and you will neeed a more powerful software to deal with the copy protections.

General Copy Protection Techs

• CSS (full name Content Scrambling System): It's a kind of most commonly used DRM of 40-bit-sized cryptographic key and adopted by most commercial DVDs. If you wanna play a DVD with CSS tech, you should firstly remove its CSS and then enjoy it through players. >> Free DVD Ripper for CSS Protection DVDs

• UOP (full name Advanced Regional Copy Control Operating Solution): A copy-protection system designed as an additional layer to be used in conjunction with CSS. The system deliberately creates corrupted sectors on the DVD, which cause error to DVD copy software's working.

• DVD Region Code/RCE (Regional Coding Enhancement): It's also a type of DRM tech. The whole world is divided into 6 DVD regions in total, region 1-6. And Every region DVDs can be just played at specific range. Although relevant department has ruled the DVD players to obey the DVD region code system, you can also search out some region-free DVD players like 5KPlayer. >> Convert Region Code DVDs

• ARccOS (full name Advanced Regional Copy Control Operating Solution): It's developed by Sony, and usually put into DVD along with CSS. It mainly create bad/corrupted sectors of a DVD so that users cannot copy it. Currently, it remains to be improved for better compatibility for certain devices like Xbox.>> Recover DVD with ARccOS Bad Sectors

• Disney Fake (also named Disney X-project DRM): It's a relatively newer DVD copy protection from Walt Disney Picture that's quite worth mentioning. Movie DVD encrypted by Disney Fake has 99 titles at most and the VOB movie file size can be over 40GB, which will cause the DVD ripping process crash or just get disordered/crumbled movie video if you are using general DVD ripper. >> How to Rip Disney DVDs?

• RipGuard and ACP (from Rovi Corporation/Macrovision): Those are two products, protecting DVD from being pirated. RipGuard tech aims to stop DVD ripping by changing its content format. Bad news is that AnyDVD and DVDFab can bypass it. While ACP (analog copy protection) insets a battery of excessive voltage pulses with off-screen VBI lines to the video, causing changes in the video image's brightness, making the DVD unpleasant to view. Luckily too, DVD Decrypter can circumvent both RipGuard and ACP.
