Hi, I have an unusual question: How would I be able to delete the contents of a DVD movie that's copyright protected?
Let me explain the situation more in detail. My friend's birthday is this upcoming Monday, and I planned a surprise present for him. I went out and bought a copy of No Country for Old Men, because I know he wants to see it, but what I plan to do is to completely erase the movie content on the DVD and then replace it with something else. In order for the joke to work, however, I have to have the original disc, because a blank disc inside the case would immediately set off warning alarms and ruin the whole thing.
My problem is that when I try and format the DVD in my laptop (operating in windows vista) I get an error message telling me that the DVD is right protected. I downloaded DVD Shrink in order to try and get around that, but it seems to me that DVD Shrink is only intended to copy DVD content, not alter the original disc. I don't have Roxio or any other burning software, so would that be able to erase the original DVD content? Any help is appreciated, even if you just tell me that what i'm trying to do isn't possible.
