Alright, so then just so I understand correctly.. is simply copying a DVD upscaling the resolution? If not, then all I am interested in is taking the DVD (in its current form) and ripping it directly (without loss of quality or compression) to my PC so I can put it in a shared file, allowing my Xbox360 to access it. I have put my PC's video library into this shared file and would like to start uploading my home movies into it as well.
What program does a fairly decent/quick job at this? I mean, how can I know the copy/rip will be as good as a rip towards another DVD? Will this copying process take hours? Because as I said in the original post, I tried one earlier and it took almost 2+hours!
