Make your own Mini DVDs
15 minutes worth of film on a CD-R
The fact that DVDs are not easily duplicated makes just about any attempt at copying these discs a real challenge. A number of programs are available to do the job, but as you will see it is far from easy.The tremendous amount of data coupled with the complex way image and sound are interwoven, and not forgetting the built in copy protection system make it pretty difficult to copy programme material stored on DVD. As we write this, there are no affordable DVD recorders and blank media. None the less, many DVD users of the enthusiastic type have been able to copy favourite scenes from DVD movies to hard disk or CD-ROM.
