Hello, this is my first post (other than my intro post in the intro forum) so please be gentle.
First, let me say that I’ve searched several sites, but I cannot find what I’m looking for.
Here’s my deal.
I’m a noob at this, so bear with me. I have DVD Decrypter for ripping/decoding, and I’ve had no problem with it so far. I’ve been using Nero 6 for burning, and I’ve successfully ripped and burned about 8 DVD movies with this combination (hey, I’ve only been at this for less than a week). I don’t know if I’ve been using it right, but it’s easy, and it has worked for me…
After I breaking the DVD down using DVD Decrypter, I go into Nero and click Recode DVD Video (Nero Recode 2). Then click import DVD and burn it.
The first few, I had no problem with, but then ran into some that wouldn’t burn. I read that there was a newer version of Nero, so I downloaded it, and it worked for the videos that I was having trouble with.
The problem is, I don’t want to pay $80 for the full version of Nero when I’m only going to use one small function of the software. What I want to know is, does anybody make a recoding software that works like the Nero recoder? I would like to find a freeware non-trial version if I can, but I don’t mind to pay for it if it’s affordable. Everything else that I’ve seen seems so much more complicated. If nobody else makes what I’m looking for, (just the re-coding software) is there anything that will show me what to do after using DVD Decrypter? Everything I keep running accross shows the whole process. I just want to keep it as simple as possible.
Please help?!? Thanks. I hope I don’t catch too much heat for asking a question that I’m sure is asked every day.
