    How do I copy DVDs (or BluRays) onto my external hard drive?

    Inb4 letmegooglethatforyou.

    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.

    The link didn't work at first, but I think I found it. I haven't downloaded it yet, because I don't want another program lying around on my computer. Is it really all that difficult to use? As in, are there different formats? I don't want it compressed. I think a DVD is 4 gb right? But I dunno if that includes all of the non-movie stuff I don't need.

    When I used DVD decrypter it took like 20 minutes for a movies, sounds nice cuz then I can just pop about 3 in per hour while gaming or something.

    No,it's very simple to use. Install it and try it out,you can always uninstall it if you don't like it.

    You can rip an entire disc uncompressed,if that's what you want. I rip my DVD's to an ISO file,uncompressed,by using DVDFab's "Full Disc" option. This retains menu's,trailers,etc. If you only want to rip the movie,there's the "Main Movie" option.

    If you keep the menu, does that mean you can play it as if it were still on the disk? Like, you could pick the chapters? If so that would be awesome. Ill check this one out, thanks.

    Yes,using the "Full Disc" option means you keep all the features of the original disc.

    Ok, the only problem is that the link you posted isn't working. So I found it on another site for free, but its only a trial version. Any way around that? Or just use the trial until its done, then download again? If thats possible.

    Its free from there too, just that it's a trial version so in 30 days it'll end. Not really a big deal though.

    The free version doesn't end,I've been using it for ages. It's been a long time since I installed it,but it may be running in trial for the "full" retail version. It should revert to the free "basic" version after the trial,which is a fairly common thing for vendors to do to encourage people to use their products. From the site:

    Overview of HD Decrypter
    DVDFab HD Decrypter is part of DVDFab DVD Copy and DVDFab Blu-ray Copy. Works as a free DVD Decrypter, it can remove all the DVD protections and part of Blu-ray protections, and copy DVD/Blu-ray to hard drive. It enables you to either copy the full disc or just copy the main movie.
    You are free to edit with its so many settings and finally get a special and perfect copy, and you will be happy with its quick speed and fabulous effect.
    It supports both NTSC and PAL DVD/Blu-ray, and allows you to preview title with an internal video player.
    What's more, it's free. Always free as a portion of DVDFab.

    Nice, Im giving Star Wars IV a try, see how it goes. Probably should have picked a shorter movie for a test run, but I just went with what was in the optical drive.

    Ok, but I didn't see an option for that on DVDfab, but this is my first time using it so maybe I missed it. If I don't like the way it turns out, I'll just re-do it.

    BTW, its running about 3X the speed of the movie, so not too bad.

    Ok, but I didn't see an option for that on DVDfab, but this is my first time using it so maybe I missed it. If I don't like the way it turns out, I'll just re-do it.

    BTW, its running about 3X the speed of the movie, so not too bad.
    The free version is essentially just a ripper/decrypter. For conversion to different formats,you will need the full version. Since you indicated you wanted uncompressed copies,the free version should suffice.

    Well the first attempt didn't turn out so well. It had the movie borken up into 8 parts, dunno wtf that was about. And, the video quality was a little off. Im going to try to convert it in mkv setting from the ripper, not copy area. I see a bunch of things like 720x306 all the way up to 1920x816, down to 128x54. Should I just stick with the 720, or go for the 1920 even though Im not sure if its that good of a dvd, or if it matters. I just want the best quality image when Im done.

    Kinda feel like a dumb ass not knowing what Im doing, but I appreciate not getting flamed.

    I'm not sure how it ended up in 8 parts,never had that happen to me Did you perhaps rip to file? If so,you will end up with a lot of .VOB files,which is normal.

    Here are the steps I follow for a full-disc copy of a DVD:

    1. Insert DVD,open DVDFab.

    2. Set region code when prompted,mine is 2.

    3. Select "Full Disc" under "DVD Copy" on left-hand menu.

    4. Select destination for a single ISO file (my personal preference). Click on the yellow folder icon next to to the target if you're ripping to file,or the icon to the right of it for ripping to ISO.

    5. Right at the bottom of the screen is a drop-down for the quality. Select DVD5 for ripping to max size for a single-layer DVD (roughly 4.7GB),or DVD9 for double-layer DVD's (up to about 8.5GB). Tip: choose DVD9,otherwise you will end up with lesser quality video.

    6. Leave other options at default,and click "Start".

    Let me know how this works for you.

    My way didn't work, what a surprise. So I followed your steps and got to 0.9%, then got an error. So, I did it again, got an error at the same spot but told it to "ignore all" and its still going. In the preview it looks like it's just going over the main manu stuff.

    A DVD disc holds 4.5 or 9gb so even with dvds your gonna run out of space quickly. Blue rays i think are 50gb?

    Just use Auto Gordian Knot and compress them to 1gb xvid files.

    Or use WinXDvd Ripper, Download a cracked version from a torrent site, works for me.

    Both are 1 click simple ****.

    Wrong! I agree it shouldn't be, but technically it is. When you buy a commercial blu-ray disc, you buy only that copy.
    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.
    That's really what they're concerned with. So as long as you don't go into business making money of of their product you should worry about the FBI knocking down your door.

    Incidentally, the difficulty you're having is due to the length of copy protection devices installed on the disc. Once the software overcomes one, the movie producers will install another. It's a constant battle keeping up and protecting their investment.

    I think it's time Hollywood invented something to make it easy for people like us that just want some convenience to their digital movie library.
