I Need Tech Help!!! - June 29, 2009, 10:30 AM

Ok so this might seem easy, but its not for me.


How do I rip DVD's onto my computer? I just want to back them up on my laptop so when i go away i can have them saved to watch on the trip.


How can I make and exact copy of DVD's? This would be for work, I have a training business and the traing DVD set that i use is $400. I would like to make back up copies so i can give that to my other instructors rather then my only copy. So i would need an exact copy with full menu options with it. Most of the programs that i looked at says that it will back up entire movie only without the menu.


Also what does "splits one DVD-9 movie into two DVD-5 discs" meen?


Can anyone recomend a program that will help me with my needs?

Thanks in advance.

This program works pretty well, does direct DVD-DVD copy's as well as archiving to your laptop.

Splitting DVD to multipe DVD's is when your source is on a 8.5GB disk and the destination media are 4.7GB disks... you will need mutliple destination disks.

Note that most DVD's are copy protected and do not copy well.

Might also want to try this: http://www.magicdvdripper.com/

And here is pretty decent reveiw of some DVD software: http://dvd-copy-software-review.toptenreviews.com/

Some DVD's work with some software suites better than others... I have a bunch that I use (listed above). Depending on what Copy protection is envoked, will determine which software app I use to "make my personal archive". - Yes to other DVD media with menu's.

I have used DVD Decrypter for years to rip DVDs. It even rips discs your not supposed to be able to rip in short order. Here's a page with a link to DL and basic instructions how to use it.
http://www.mrbass.org/dvdrip/

In terms of using it on your laptop, you could simply burn backup copies from images you pull from the disc. You could also mount the image file and use the DVDs that way. That way you could have the DVD images and not have to carry them around necessarily if you have adequate storage space. A free program that does this is Daemon Tools Lite http://www.daemon-tools.cc/eng/downloads

The difference between a DVD-9 and DVD-5 is mainly their storage capacity. DVD-5 is a single sided disc that holds 4.7GB. The DVD-9 is a single sided, double layered disc that holds 8.5GB... so a DVD-9 movie can hold roughly twice as much. So that is why there is an option to split a DVD-9 into DVD-5 discs.
