I've tried DVD decrypter and it doesn't work all that great, especially on Windows 7.
The reason Im asking is because I have a 1 terabyte external hard drive, and I want to fill it up with movies and TV shows so I can bring them with me in the Navy. I am not interested in making copies of the movies and burning them onto DVDs, I only want the digital copy to keep on my laptop. I don't want the videos to be compressed at all, I want them at full size in 720p or 1080p, whatever it is (lol). So, what program should I use, and what format should I use? How do DVDs differ from BluRays, and how do TV shows differ from movies?
This shouldn't be illegal, right? It looks like making the program to decrypt and selling copies is illegal, but using the program for personal use isn't, so I should be good talking about it.
If it matters, I have:
16.4" Vaio F series
8 gb ram
i7 2.0 ghz quad core
650 gb internal hard drive
1000 gb external (might get a second if I make a lot of copies)
Forgot the graphics card, but I can play Bulletstorm just fine
Optical drive plays DVDs and BluRays
Windows 7 operating system
Last, what do I use to play the movies? That may seem like a dumb question, but I only ripped one DVD so far (The Expendables) and when I tried to play it, I could only play it in a video editing program where I couldn't take advantage of my whole 16.4" screen. I want it to seem like Im playing the movies from my optical drive, not the Shtity compressed videos you put on Ipods to save space. With 1, maybe 2 terabytes of space video file size isn't a problem.
