Ripping DVD movies

Hi All,

I got myself an Asus EEE PC 900HA on the weekend.

I'm having fun playing with it but have a question:

I will likely buy a portable dvd player in the future but if possible I would like to be able to copy some movies or TV series I have that are on DVDs onto my hard drive for when I go on trips. I had discoverd how to use a DVD drive that is on one of my home computers as a drive for the EEE PC through my home network. That works great for loading programs on the EEE PC.

I am not interested in priating or downloading movies, but if any of you can give me pointers as to how to copy discs onto the hard drive in a format I can watch I would greatly appreciate it!

Thanks!

..Tom

Everything you need in one package, and very simple to operate.
Rip disk to hard drive, and decrypt using Dvd Decrypter. http://www.mrbass.org/dvdrip/


Then run autogk, and let it create a nice xvid video for you. http://www.autogk.me.uk/modules.php?name=Downloads

Stream that however you would like.

I have the first one running right now.. I am just trying to figure out getting the second.

I don't know that I come close to understanding the different terms in this program. iso, etc.

Any tips there would be appreciated!

If you are running Windows on the EEE PC have a look at DVDFab. The interface is terrific.

Running the windows or the linux version?
in linux:
Command line -> dd if=/dev/[cdrom] of=/home/user/[file].iso
This makes a copy of the disc in iso format.
[cdrom] should be the device ID of the drive...just type mount to find a list (I asume it will be automounted)
[file] is anyname you want...just don't use spaces...

To watch: mount the image.
mount -o loop [file] /mnt
/mnt can be anywhere, but since /mnt was invented for this purpose...why not use it
Fire up your dvd player program and just browse to the /mnt folder if it doesn't already see it (should work fine)

Can you tell I'm a linux geek?

Windows Version.. I might setup a dual boot with linux in the future to learn about it.

A good program to mount iso images (or in fact most type of images) is daemon-tools. http://www.daemon-tools.cc
It can even mount game cds/dvds with copyprotection emulation (not needed for dvds)
It creates a virtual dvd-drive, to which it virtually inserts the disc in the image file
I loved the program...when I still used windows

DVDDecrypter can make images that can be used with daemon-tools.
(make sure to create an ISO image)

I gave it a try with season 1 of "The Office". I ripped the DVD to the hard drive and then ran Autoigk. I pointed it at one of the files and after awhile it made an AVI that ran fine but didn't have sound.

Any quick idea what I did wrong?

Success!

Before I entered my last message I re-ran the process as I thought i might have interupted it.. the re-running did the trick and it worked fine!

Thanks!
