    Rip DVD to pc to put on hard drive

    Does anyone do this? I assume it's a lengthy process but is it worthwhile?

    It would be nice to have my fave films on hard drive.

    Anyone no any programes for this task or anyone think there is no point doing it?

    Any help appreciated

    Excuse poor grammer it's late :-)

    Use a program called DVD decrypter to put it onto your hard drive or Handbrake is another good one. handbrake.fr

    Should take no longer than 20 mins to rip a copy but will need a lot of hard drive space as its about 5gb of data per rip.

    Wow, 20 mins? I was expecting it to take a lot longer.

    Space shouldn't be a problem as hard drives are so cheap these days

    Have you done this yourself?

    Thanks for the link

    depends on pc obviously. dvd decrypter is cool but doesnt work on a lot of recent dvds as it was written back in 2005 I believe.

    Most of my DVD's are drm protected and would not copy to pc, Tryed cucusoft video converter, cheap to buy, and worked a treat.

    why buy when the above are all free :thumbsup:

    Use dvd43 dvd43.com/ to get around protection.
    All will be fine then.

    Yeah I know mates who it use to take hours! So I use to do it for them and they would get it off the network (whilst at uni, all halls were connected together!).

    The fastest I've done a DVD was in about 15mins. :thumbsup:

    rippin it is quick..... its the encoding of it that takes ages!

    I have a tool (device driver) installed called AnyDvd, which simply sits there in the background and makes any DVD you put in look like an unprotected one. Then you can use anything you want to copy^H^H^H^H back it up.

    A 4.3GB+ "rip" probably isn't what you want - huge amount of disk space in MPEG-2 format.... if you are going to rip them for your HD then as the earlier poster said, use Handbrake - it simplifies everything. It'll take hours, but you can have a very high quality version of the dvd in about 1GB of space.

    I didn't say DVD Shrink... I said Handbrake.

    Plus, If it takes you 15 minutes to rip (shrink) and entire DVD then you're getting crap quality. It takes time for a reason - you want the software to make a first pass, work out the optimal balance between your target size and how best to compress to achieve a quality end file.
