Strange program name DVD43 has deep meaning: it stands for "DVD for free”. DVD43 developers made two variation of the utility. DVD43 and DVD43 Plug-in are both free DVD decrypters, but with different applicability:
* DVD43 runs in the background and decrypts DVDs on-the-fly.
* DVD43 Plug-in provides an interface that DVD copy programs can use to decrypt DVDs. Note that not all the DVD copy programs may support this plugin. Examples of the programs, which do support the plugin are: DVD2One, WinDVD, PowerDVD, etc.
Both are so easy to use, that anybody can do that immediately after installation. Very important that DVD43 supports on-the-fly decryption, letting you decrypt a DVD or CD without need of copying the data to your hard drive first. Simply insert a DVD or CD into your disc drive while DVD43 is running and duplicate the disc with CD- or DVD-burning software. Note that you have to use a burning program, supporting DVD-movie compression, if you want to copy a DVD9 movie to DVD5 media.
From ethical perspectives, you understand that you may use this utility and a DVD-burning program to backup your own movie and audio collections, and not to duplicate illegally media you do not own.
