I used to burn DVD's all the time, (i.e., rent from netflix and burn them). That was a few years back and I dont remember the software I used to use. I think one was called DVDshrink or something like that, but I remember I used multiple things and they were free online to download.

I just did a brief search and came up with tons of different programs, but I am not sure which to use and which cann be had for free (or atleast free trials).

Just need it to burn a copy of P90x disks!

any help would be appreciated.

I'm not sure if DVDShrink is dead or not.

Anyway, hypothetically speaking, if one wanted to make copies of DVDs, one could use an application called AnyDVD that sits in the system tray and automatically removes the copy protection, trailers, etc.

Then a separate app to shrink and burn the disk, like, CloneDVD2 for instance.

I'm not into that kinda stuff, but if one were so inclined, I think one could find both of these apps on any major torrent site.

I hear there is a certain Bay on the interwebz that Pirates are known to visit. May be a good place to look for research purposes.

Eh, it works, but not that well. CloneDVD is better b/c it takes care of the shrinking and burning for you. Also processes much faster.

That's true, but I thought the OP wanted freeware.

True dat, but any app he finds capable of removing copyright protection is gonna be proprietary so he may as well get the best.
