Alright, just grabbed a movie and want to play it but no clue as to where to put this files at. They end in .IFO, .BUP and .VOB. I want to burn it onto DVD so a good program for this would also help.

Everything is fine. Well almost, I wanna get around the copyright so I can burn to DVD. I tried on the only blank DVD that I had and it didn't work and I find out that I gotta get around this shit. So please help me get around it.

I'm not sure what you are getting at...

Like die said, download DVD Shrink (before it too gets pwn3d like DVD Decrypter [pick this up too while you still can]).

DVD Shrink for Dummies:

Boot DVD Shrink. Click Open Files. Point the file browser to the location of the files you downloaded. Let DVD shrink analyze the files. Click Burn (or whatever the equivalent is). Go make a sandwich.

Yes, there is a learning curve if its new to you, however, DVD Shrink is one of the easiest, most intuitive pieces of ripping/burning software out there.

I understand support for DVD Shrink has discontinued, and I've had trouble with some discs. I still use it for general purpose ripping, though, since it allows you to customize how much compression you want.

However, I've been using the AnyDVD/CloneDVD combination lately to great effect...it kills any sort of copy protection, it's a lot faster than Shrink, and the compression is even better. I copied a disc that was slam-full on DVD-9 media, and it all copied onto a DVD-5 with an indiscernable drop in quality, whereas with Shrink I could see a bit of cross-coloring and pixelation.

It's only failing is that it's not free ($60 for both), but I'm sure there's a way to get around that using registry hacks. And AnyDVD by itself would do for breaking copy protection to run DVD Shrink.
