Hey lads, im sure this is a stupid question to some of you but i would really appreciate it if you guys helped a newbie out.
Im trying to get the best possible quality dvd rips from my dvds. I bought an external hardrive to store all the rips on as i dont want to burn them to other dvds, i want to watch them off my hardrive.
I came across this program called DVD decrypter which has ‘encoded’ the dvd to a VOB. file which i play on powerDVD and the quality is spectacular! I think this is a much better idea to rip dvds to vob files using DVD decrypter and watch them off your hardrive than using ripping programs like superdvd ripper and gordian knot, etc which offer inferior rips.
Anyway…sorry for the long story but my main question is…
Does my DVD drive effect the quality of those ‘rips’ from dvd decrypter. Remeber im only watching them off my hardrive, im not going to burn them to blank dvds. My dvd drive is fairly mediore as it is the one that came with my Dell Laptop, im just wondering if there is any point in buying a different drive so that those rips will be of better quality.
Thanks very much in advance to those who take the time to help me!
