The reason you got the answers you did is that you already have AnyDVD. Or indicated you did.
So why would members start recommending or giving help for other software ?
Especially when we have had good results with AnyDVD.
I'm sure if you look over the forum you will find that DVDFab gets about an equal share. Their PassKey is very similar to AnyDVD.
DVDFab also has it "all-in-one" versions to do backup copies.
Then there is Ideal DVD Copy . It doesn't have a seperate program you can run like AnyDVD but it does decrypt & copy DVDs.
The list goes on .
AnyDVD will also rip to either DVD files or .ISO . The only drawback is it only does the full DVD copy . That means you have to compress it to single layer if that is what you are making backups on. You should be able to use DVDShrink to do that.
