DVD Copying - The basics

I just posted the article DVD Copying - The basics.

This article explains the basics about DVD copying. If you would like to know why it is not possible to just drag and drop the files from a DVD to a DVD recordable, you should read it. Of course it also mentions how you are able to make backups of your precious movies.

So theoretically you can copy the VIDEO_TS folder to you’re hard drive and play them using WinDVD or simiar DVD player software. Right? Or does the copy operation screw up. In windows XP when i tried this i got error "cannot create or replace VIDEO_TS: File system error (-2147351799)
