copying a movie on DVD?

Is it possible to make a copy of a DVD movie? If I get two read/write DVD drives for my computer, can I “stream” one to the other? Or maybe get a cheaper stand-alone DVD player “streaming” to my computer’s read/write DVD drive? Thanks

First, insert here the standard disclaimer that you should only be copying movies you own for backup puropses, and that copying rented or borrowed DVD’s is infact a crime…with that out of the way…

Yes you can. What you need is a normal DVD drive, along with a DVD recordable drive, in your computer. You also need some software to perform the actual copy. There are a few out there. you put a blank DVD in the recordable drive, the DVD that you own in the reader, and tell the software to make a copy.
