Are these commercial DVDs?

If so, please see our Announcement:

Not being from U.S., I did not know that this was illegal.

If you're not in the USA it almost certainly isn't illegal for you. Eg, in Britain it is specifically legal so long as the DVD is your property and the copy is for your personal use only.

It's legal to make a personal copy from the DVD you own in many countries. But since these forums are owned and operated in the US we abide by the law and refrain from any discussion of the topic. If and when congress decides to change that law (DRM) we will be happy to open discussions.
