Have you ever wanted to make backup copies of your DVDs but didn’t want to mess with confusing DVD ripping software or tools?  Today, we’ll look at drop dead simple method to decrypt DVDs on the fly with DVD43 so you can easily copy them to your hard drive and causes no problem at all.

Installation and Setup

Download and install DVD43. You can find the installation below.


When the install is finished you’ll be prompted to restart your PC.


DVD43 runs in the system tray at startup. When idle, the DVD43 icon is yellow with a straight face.


Insert your DVD into your optical drive. While DVD43 is searching for the encryption keys, the system tray icon will appear as a devilish smiley face. This process usually takes just a few seconds, but may occasionally take longer.


DVD43 will detect the disc and the system try icon should turn into a green smiley face.


Now just browse your DVD directory and simply copy the Video TS file from the DVD to your hard drive.  You may find other directories, such as AUDIO_TS, but those folders and files can be ignored.


Once it‘s copied to your hard drive you can play it in your favorite media player. In VLC, select Media > Open Folder and browse for the VIDEO TS folder.


Now you can enjoy the full DVD experience with menus and extra features.


If you don’t want DVD43 running in the system tray all the time, right click on the icon and select Exit when you aren’t using it.

    Is the software free? As far as I know just copy the contents of the DVD then copy and paste it to your hard drive would be more convenient.

    DRM (digital rights management) normally uses an encryption key, or other standardized way of marking data on DVDs so that if you just copy them or 'rip' them directly, the files will be corrupted. Not all DVDs are DRM protected, but most these days are. SOME players may still attempt to play even the corrupted file, so do not judge whether or not the copy worked by the first few seconds of the clip. DVDs have multiple video files on them in the VOB format. Not all videos on the same DRM DVD may end up corrupted after a direct copy. You can bet the main feature of the disc will have some type of integrated security.

    This is what this program does. It will figure out what standard the DRM of the DVD is set to, and then corrects the files in real time as they are copied. This program seems to be the same kind of solution as the DRM handlers on your computer already. Only this program will allow you to dump the disc, and not just play it.

    Yes, DVD43 is free. If you want a professional 'imma hafta charge ya' program like this, see

     Isn’t that majority of the videos nowadays have DRM.  So you can only enjoy this software on old movies right?
