Walmart sells dvd backup software.. for $6.95, so it must be legal.. remember the free speech case about decss? The source code is protected as free speech.

i am playing the movie while i was ripping.

well the rip is done and the 2600 article is not helping me to much now.

i have an .01 file and about 3 ac3 files and i have no idea how you get this into avi or mpg format. the 2600 arty is in the fall issue.

Whenever I make backups of my dvds I use SmartRipper, DVD2AVI, TMPGEnc and a dumbed down version of this step by step.

well i found out that ac3 files are the audio of my rip. and i also figured out how to get a d2v file also. so that helped alot. so i fired up tmpgenc and went to svcd and found out that tmpgenc doesn't support ac3 files.... so i jump on to google and search of a ac3 to wav converter.... the only luck i had with that was finding two progys that if registed will convert tha ac3 files all the way. with out registration it only encodes the file 50% of the way... so no luck there. jump on DC++ and find an ac3 tool convert to wav pop it into tmpgenc and let it go for the night!!! and wake up to find that i have a perfectly good dvd rip of boondock saints now on my computer!!

smartripper never gives me problems, if you want to just rip the file so you canburn to dvdr then make it one big file. if you want to put it on cdrs or something use dvdx or dvd2avi. encoding loses lots of quality and takes lots of time, buying a $130 dvdrw is a nice idea since it pays for itself after a few blockbuster ....backups... ;p
