AnyDVD is a program that works in a similar fashion to DVD43. It is updated quite often to deal with new copy protection schemes as they come out.
It also has a built-in ripper to take the dvd from the disk to the hard drive, and is quite simple to use. It will not compress the dvd so that it can fit onto a single layer dvd however. Most commercially made dvds are too large to fit onto a regular single layer dvd, and have to be copied to dual layer dvds, or compressed to fit. You can do this with DVDShrink.
There is a free trial available for download if you want to try it out.
AnyDVD is not compatible with DVD43, so you should uninstall DVD43 before downloading the trial.
