Hello, this is my 2nd post here, so hopefully I won't make too much of a fool of myself. I've checked around the forums a bit before buying any DVD backup programs, but I can't seem to find an answer for this.
I was curious to know if it's possible to actually copy the copy protection on a DVD when making a 1:1 backup.
I know that AnyDVD HD decrypts the the copy protection while running in the background, and by using another program "ImgBurn" you can copy the DVD to your hard drive, but will ImgBurn be copying the copy protection too?
I know it might sound silly to some. "Why would he want to KEEP the copy protection?" The reason I ask is because I'm trying to make EXACT perfect 1:1 BIT FOR BIT backups of my DVDs and Blu-Ray DVDs.
As a follow up question, if it IS possible to copy the copy protection, can DVD and Blu-Ray DVD burners burn that to disk when I re-burn my backup?
Another question a little off-topic, so no need to answer this one: I've noticed anytime someone wants to make a backup of a video game, they have to have a mod chip installed in their video game console in order to play it...Does that mean it's impossible to make a perfect 1:1 EXACT copy of a video game, including the copy protection information? Or does the problem lie in re-burning the game once you've backed it up?
Thanks in advance for all your help.
