    Re: dvd to hard drive.

    We've had previous threads about topics of dubious nature. I believe this is one of them.

    Callum, if you want to learn how to rip DVD's, this is not the place to be asking. This is a professional forum, dealing with education, not hacker school.

    Quick reply -

    Details removed


    I could bore the pants off you in regards to compression, codecs, bit rates etc but its something you really need to investigate yourself.

    Re: dvd to hard drive.

    There are legitimate reasons to be ripping DVDs. Not that many, I'll grant you.

    Copying free-to-air recordings made under your schools ERA licence is one. And one I'm doing a lot of! Media studies would be another area that this technique may be a valid tool.

    Use DVD Decrypter to copy the disk onto your HDD then "auto gordian knot" to convert it into an AVI.

    Re: dvd to hard drive.

    if you're copying your own DVD then Nero does a good job. A lot of the other software mentioned here removes the DRM, which is illegal (copyright infringement), but you won't have any DRM since you made it yourself........

    Re: dvd to hard drive.

    Topic is now being locked. I am not going to delete it at this time purely to point out one thing and one thing only.

    There are some things that EduGeek members can give advice to one another about and there are some things we cannot.

    If a member asks about how to do something that is in direct breach of laws of the land then there is only one possible response. Stop asking. People will explain to you why you can't, people will give options to do things differently but irregardless of whether you want to do it as part of your job in a school or whether you want to do it at home the answer will be the same.

    This is not limited to ripping DVDs but obtaining any copyrighted materials without paying due diligence to the relevant laws. Please do not ask about this in future.
