Welcome to the forums southpoleman69. You should be aware that these forums are pretty strict about legality of downloaded material. We don't allow discussion of copyright protected material that is downloaded without permission of the copyright holders.
Downloads that are legal, and paid for are becoming more common, but not from such sites as isohunt or demonoid.
The best and easiest way to make a copy of a dvd that you own is a subject that is allowed here, as it is seen as a part of fair use to backup material that you have purchased. You should look in the Movie Copy Software forum for answers, but the two most commonly used software programs for this are DVDFab and AnyDVD. Both are still being updated to deal with new copy protection schemes.
