OK, I'm not into k9copy very much but as I've seen k9copy is not a real 
DVD backup utility, it is a shrinker. That means that you can shrink 
your movie DVD that is larger than 4,5 GB to a DVD with a capacity af 
4,5 GB. But you can't copy whole DVDs with a capacity more of 4,5 GB to 
another empty DVD with more than 4,5 GB. I think that's the magic.
