I am not sure if I put the right title or not but here goes. I am trying to find out how to make electronic copies of my DVDs so that I can carry them with me on an external hard drive. I am in the Marines and am about to go on ship. I have very limited space and this will help kill the boredom.
I know there are numerous products available for sale but like most people, I am cheap and would like to find good, free software. If someone has a copy of purchased software that is better and the key to it, that would be nice also. I know that is probably illegal but I thought I would give it a try. Basically all I need to do is get the movie copied onto my computer so that when I click on the .avi or .mpg or whatever. it will play for me and be a good copy. I want to keep them between 700 and 800 megs.
i use to have a copy of DVD Decrypter and Auto Gordian Knot that someone gave me with very good instructions for use but it seems as though with almost all of the newer DVDs, I can not copy them to my computer. I'm sure I am rambling on and you all know exactly what I need but I am new at this and am not sure how detailed I need to be. If you need any other info from me, just ask.
