  • Help me with techmology

    Friend of mine at work asked me (for some reason) for recommendations on DVD rippers. Went something like this:

    Him: "I want to be able to rip DVDs to my hard drive so I can watch them whenever. Last time I tried it, it took three hours. I heard there are rippers out there now that can do it in an hour or so. I thought you'd be the person to ask about this."

    Me: "Sure, let me look at some and get back to you in a little bit." (runs to lounge)

    Knowing this guy, I'm assuming he's willing to spend a decent chunk of change on a good one.

    Help me?

      So you aren't the smart person he thought he had access to?

      DVD Shrink & Encrypter, and Nero. Depending on the DVD, 30 mins to an hour on my machine.

            Thanks, all.

            Sort of disappointed in the lack of sarcasm, though.

              Seriously, tell your friend that is the only way to go.

                          This thread gives me the impression that all you need to rip a DVD is a computer that can play DVD's and this freeware? Is that true? No additional hardware?
                          Of course you do.

                            Yes.

                            This software creates an ISO image of the DVD that is ripped. You need to mount that image somewhere, usually a DVD disk which would require a writer, but Nero (i think it's Nero) has a utility that allows you to create a virtual mount for the ISO image. Nero is not free however....well, it's not supposed to be free.
