Found a trial of CloneDVD ultimate 7.
I assume I can use this along with the trial of AnyDVD? [/QUOTE]
That isn’t the real CloneDVD2 It is a “knock off” trading on the name.
This is where you download the trial of CloneDVD2 & the trial policy:

AFIK since CloneDVD2 was designed to work with AnyDVD the trials also do . It has been many years since I used the trials but I have read posts that say they still work in trial.
IIRC the older versions of AnyDVD didn’t rip at all; then AnyDVD would only rip to .ISO ; now AnyDVD also rips to a harddrive in DVD format.
The limitation is AnyDVD only rips full movie . So if you burn that it has to be to a DL DVD.
As above CloneDVD2 can compress that rip from the harddrive to DVD5(SL) . It has been a while since I did that but I beleive it has to be compressed back to the harddrive & then written (burned) to a DVD (SL).
The easy way it to let CloneDVD2 do the rip to DVD5 (SL) to the harddrive from the commercial DVD with AnyDVD on . If you want to burn to a DVD (SL) . AnyDVD still needs to decrypt the DVD & it will let you know when it has done that. The tray fox is either gray or dimmed red when doing this. It turns to full red when done. If you have the baloon popups on it will also use those.
If I get some time I will do a test to see if I can do an “on the fly” rip & burn . [B]Not that I recommend ever doing it that way.[/B] I will post the result.
