DVD43 is a free DVD driver for 32 bit versions of Microsoft Windows. As the user guide states, "DVD43 stands for 'DVD For Free'". It acts as a driver for optical drives, disabling zone and copy protection information. It assists in the creation of backup copies of DVDs one legally owns and the use of DVDs outside of the original region of release. It can also be used to copy CDs. In addition it allows upscaling of protected DVDs on analogue monitors under Windows Vista. This product does not directly rip, copy, or convert any media; only assisting other copy and conversion software.

It also allows DVDs to be played over a network, meaning that small media centre PCs without optical drives can use the DVD drive on a server.

For technical reasons DVD43 only operates as a driver for 32 bit versions of Microsoft Windows, though it is supported as a plug-in for select programs operating on 64 bit versions of Windows.
