    I have a DVD R/W, DVD R; SlySoft AnyDVD; pack of DVD+R/W disks. What else do I need to purchase to copy DVD movies? Thank you.

    AnyDVD, itself, will allow you to rip movies but you'll need DVD DL media for most movies. Otherwise you'll need software like CloneDVD for transcoding to DVD SL as well as burning software which CloneDVD can also do.

    1. Use Anydvd 6.3.1.5: click http://static.slysoft.com/SetupAnyDVD.exe

    You may need to reboot after installing if prompted to do so.

    2. Click the red fox icon on your toolbar. Click "default". Click "ok".

    3. If you use something other than Clonedvd, right click the red fox icon on your toolbar-->select "rip video-dvd to haddisk". Choose your source and destination paths. Click "Copy", and wait for Anydvd ripper to finish. You can then import that rip into whatever program you want.

    4. Use the latest Clonedvd: click
