If you need a free alternative to AnyDVD - without the problems with the elby drivers - i suggest you try DVD For Free DVD43.
You will also need the Patin-Couffin access layer which can be downloaded here http://download.vso-software.fr/patin-couffin_setup.exe. Please not that the Patin-Couffin layer is already installed if you use CopyToDVD.
Here’s some info on DVD43
DVD43 is a small, free tool that integrates into Windows and overrides copy-protection mechanisms found on DVD-Video discs (namely, CSS) and DVD region limitations (in case you have RPC-2 DVD drive). Integrates nicely with XPRESS, DVD2One, WinDVD, PowerDVD, etc.
Please note that this program doesn’t work with Win95/98/ME and according to it developer, never will. Program doesn’t remove Macrovision copy protection mechanism, so outputting video via TV-out to a VHS might cause problems.
DVD43 also requires so-called Patin-Couffin access layer to be installed on system in order to access the DVD drive on lowest possible level. You can get Patin-Couffin access layer to your machine by installing either CopyToDVD, XPRESS or BlindWrite Suite.
To those who may be wondering, I am currently using Nero 188.8.131.52, Alcohol 120% latest and CopyToDVD without any problems so far with DVD43 and Patin-Couffin.
Using DVD43, CopyToDVD and DVD2One v1.30 will actually allow you to rip CSS encrypted DVD-VIDEO directly from your DVD-ROM drive and burn the result to your 1004IM/1008IM in one step.
