Ok, I got my new IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad R60 laptop from Pharmacy school, and it has a dvd re-writable drive, and came with something called Sonic dvd copy, but when I tried to copy a (rental) dvd it said "can't copy; this dvd is copy protected" etc. This software can copy only unprotected media it seems... ...so what kind of software are people using to copy dvd's? are there any free ones? if not, which ones give nest bang for the buck? Thanks!
