The best source I've found for this sort of information is:

They have numerous guides that explain how to use (usually free or 
low-cost) software to extract material from DVDs to your computer and 
then how to burn them onto a blank DVD.  And they have links to sites 
where you can download the software.  'Course, the first hardware thing 
you'll need is a DVD recorder for your computer.

The information can get technical, but the guides are pretty 
exhaustive.  They're a great resource for making Fair Use of DVD video.

> Hello all,

> Thanks.
