Sorry for what I am sure is a dumb question, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere....
I want to copy my DVD's to my hard drive, so I can share them over my network with my other pc's.
To test this, I simply copied the content of the VIDEO_TS directory to my HDD, shared that folder, and was able to play the movie on my laptop over the network using WMP v11.
My question is, if this works why do I need dedicated software to rip DVDs?
I want to have ALL the original DVD content and quality so I do not want to compress the DVD to save space or remove any menus, so is there a need for a DVD ripping tool?
Thanks for the help,
