OK, here is my situation.
My wife is leaving for Iraq in July. I have bought her a new HP laptop and have bought a 1tb external harddrive. The intent on buying the harddrive was to rip all her favorite movies and TV show DVDs onto the harddrive so she would have them with her without taking 1000 discs with her.
Here is what I want:
I need software that can copy a DVD to the harddrive and then be able to watch it as if the DVD was in the computer. Example, I want to be able to click on Family Guy Season one Disk one and have the menu come up and be able to select an episode and be able to rewind and fast forward through anything. So far everything I have tried has made all the episodes into one movie file that I was unable to use the menu and navigate.
I have tried DVDFab on the advise from a co-worker who uses it to copy movies from disc to disc and has for years with this software without issue. However I have yet to find a feature on the DVDFab premium or the DVDFab mobile that will let me do what I want to do. Sidenote, the DVDFab help email assistance is terrible!!! I have never had so many generic responses that have nothing to do with my question.
Am I asking to much? does this not exist?? I figure if you can copy a DVD onto a black disc and have it run like the original (with menu and features) then why cant I rip it to a harddrive with the same results??
PLEASE HELP ME!!!! I dont have a lot of time left and have been stumped until today on what to use and how to use it.
