Help me if you can please
Free DVD Ripper = DVD Decrypter
Free DVD Burner = DVD Decrypter
Turn widescreen to full = Bleh, why would you?
Because i hate widescreen…i like full
Buy a newer TV that can change it for you. Other wise its a pain in the ass.
I guess if you seriously wanted to chop the sides of the video off, all you have to do is select the appropriate Pan&Scan option in any DVD player made since the beginning of time.
I have alot of time i just want it to fit my tv and not have the big black spaces
Free DVD ripper:dvd shrink(more easier and better)
Free DVD Burner:dvd descrypter (dvd shrink can intergrate to it)
Free 16:9 to 4:3: well i cant think of any but a good trial version (which has full features but it puts a watermark on the finished product) is WinAvi Converter whihc is the fastest video converter (and also widescreen to full)
http://clairechiang.net/wordpress/?p=14 if you want an explanation on how to rip a DVD. All the software I suggest there is 100% free.
As for turning a widescreen to full screen…that’s not a very good idea, but if you really want to, then when you convert a video with Dr. divx (which I explained a little more in my page), you can specify the size of the video, so you can change it to something like 640X480. However, if you do that, then everything will be unusually narrow in the new video.
Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question. I generally recommend…
Free DVD Ripper - DVD DeCrypter or DVDFab DeCrypter
Free DVD Burner - Same as above.
…because these two programs seem to have the most success with the most discs. Using RipIt4Me in conjunction with DVD DeCrypter has given me the most success. And best of all, the programs I’ve suggested are all freeware!
Above all else, please bear in mind that DVD ripping is a very complex thing. What works for one disc will often not work for another. You need to do a LOT of reading in these forums (as well as on AfterDawn, Digital Digest and VideoHelp forums) in order to understand all of the issues involved. I’ve lurked here for years now. And I can tell you that I still learn new things every day. Sometimes it’s just a simple matter of a tweak or two. Sometimes it gets extremely arcane. And that’s just the nature of the beast. Unlike ripping an audio CD, DVD ripping simply is NOT a one click affair. If ONLY it were so easy. But the long and short of it is you need to read and educate yourself on the issues and then experiment until you find a method which gives you success.
Whew. I’m just glad you didn’t ask about ripping DVD to DivX or XviD. Now THAT’S complex.
This thread is pretty out of date, but for the benifet of those that come later…
I agree completely about needing an education and checking out all the user forums.
In my search I eventually bought a dvd ripper user guide to all the software mentioned above. And before jumping on me, yes, I could definately have found everything in the guide elsewhere for free, and did, including many other user guides available for free. But it was worth it to me to just get it all in one place and spelled out in more detail than just a few screen shots like you see on most on-line guides.
In the interest of offering more options, people might also be interested in ImgBurn which is authored by the original author of DVD Decrypter and picks up (for burning) where DVD Decrypter left off. You’ll still need to rip using another product like DVDFab first though. Be sure to revisit DVDFab regularly since they update frequently.

any freeware for Mac?
Handbrake can break CSS encryption for free on a Mac. If the dvd has anything more advanced in copy protection, Handbrake won’t work. But it still works for many dvds.
Mac the Ripper is the other main option and seems to be a pain in the a** to get. It appears to require a “donation” these days, plus registering in their forum. Since I’m not a Mac user, and have never had a chance to look at the program, I’m not sure how effective it is against newer protection schemes, but I seriously doubt it comes close to what AnyDVD can do on a Windows PC.
[QUOTE=lilmalimal;2115681]any freeware for Mac?[/QUOTE]
Updated permalink to my post:
I have a two-step process to dump the DVD to the hard drive and then to convert the raw file into the more compact divx format.
It involves using two programs, both of which are compatible with mac.
You can look at some free dvd software here
The perfect program for you is the StarBurn. A very competitive burning program that will allow you to burn any CDs or DVDs, Blu-Ray or HD-DVD.
I been using it for almost now 4 months whit no problem at all.
And for the best part is absolutely free a 100%
[QUOTE=TheNeonLantern;1001304]Because i hate widescreen…i like full
No and absolutely no ripper software can do that.
ONLY a conversion tool or another output device with such a feature can help you to achieve what you want.
