I have had several issues when trying to rip a widescreen movie. For instance Armageddon Criterion and Backdraft. Both are widescreen movies however when I open in DVDFab they show as 4:3 ratio instead of 16:9
They may be letterboxed, which will show as 4:3. How do they copy?
Yeah they are letterboxed. My guess is that they are older and made only for 4:3 screens. I copied as is and going to try and find a newer copy from video store that will be 16X9.
Many of the old letterboxed movies have been re-released on DVD in true widescreen, hope the ones you want have been.
