Why Can't We Copy DVDs to Hard Drive?
"Can I copy a DVD onto my hard drive?" It doesn't work to directly copy DVDs to hard drive. Nearly all movies are encrypted with CSS copy protection. Decryption keys are stored in the normally inaccessible lead-in area of the disc. If you try to copy the contents of an encrypted DVD to a hard drive, you'll usually get an error. However, if you have used a software player to play the movie it will have authenticated the disc in the drive, allowing you to copy without error, but the encryption keys will not be copied. If you try to play the copied VOB files, the decoder will request the keys from the DVD-ROM drive and will fail. You may get the message "Cannot play copy-protected files".
