Please help a first timer! any help welcome!



Dear all,

Can you help a new member in dire needs ??? I am completely new to all this and I am currently looking for a quality free DVD ripping programme for the latest titles 08. Can anyone advise me or point me in the right direction!! All help and knowledge welcome!!!




The only free decryption/ripping program that is still being updated regularly is DVDFab HD Decrypter.

If you need a program to compress the movie onto a single layer dvd, look at DVDShrink. You can find it at and you’ll find some guides to its use there as well, and there are more here at cdfreaks. Shrink can decrypt and rip older movies, but can’t handle the newer ones, so use DVDFab HD Decrypter to get them onto the hard drive first.


Forgot to add that DVD Shrink will not burn so you’ll want Imgburn to burn the Backup too. Use DVD Shrink in ISO mode.
