Bit for bit copy software?

My uncle e-mailed me looking for software to do a bit for bit copy of a disc. He said:

"I need software (Mac, PC Linux, doesn't matter) that will do a bit for bit copy of a disk. It MUST do a bit copy - I want an exact duplicate with protection and everything intact."

He said a program called DVD Fab is supposed to do it, but he can't find the new version anywhere. I think he wants to work on copying DVDs and Blu-Rays.

Any ideas?

edit: oh, disks.

Good luck, they have intentional manufacturing errors in them as DRM that your player cant read

Well, he is an idiot. If he wants a pirated version he is still an idiot.

He can generate an exact copy (disk to image file) under any *nix using dd. The syntax is:
Code:
dd if=[input device] of=[output file]
So, if he has a typically populated linux box:
Code:
dd if=/dev/dvd of=~/dvd.iso
He won't be able to write it successfully because of how DVD media is crippled, though.

There used to be a piece of software called Padus Discjuggler that could do this. The free version was limited to 1x write speed, but it'd absolutely copy the disc perfectly. Not sure if it's still around.

Edit:

Not sure if it'll work on DVDs or blu ray. I assume not, but might be worth a shot.

Yeah, I remember I borrowed my friend's Crysis DVD a few years back. When I put it in my DVD player, the machine actually started making this horrible chunking/clacking/grinding noise, and I thought both the reader and the disc were going to be fucked. I mean, the noise was so loud, I thought that the disc might literally come out broken.

Turns out, oh yeah, that's the DRM, it's SUPPOSED TO DO THAT.
