I use it all the time too. But the current version works so well for me (not a single problem) that I'll wait for a major future update (not that I can see it needs one, really).

The current version works well for me too. What are the changes to this over the previous one. If it had a more powerful ripper for those stubbern DVD's i would be more likey to change to it.

For NEWbies, What is this application for? Where would I use it? Please don't scoff.

Its for ripping DVD's and burning them (dvd-5)

719.10.2003 11:17

So if I download this application it will contain everything I need to rip DVD'S?

To rip them yes. Generally, you also need to compress DVD's to fit on DVD R's. To do that you need another piece of software called DVD Shrink (free also).

Thanks Oriphus. I use DVD X COPY and have Nero running in the background which makes the "ripping" work better then not having Nero at all. If I use DVD X COPY Platinum would I still need a Nero type program running in the backround? If you do, would the latest Nero 6 be advised to run with DVD X COPY Platinum. Or any recommendation would be greatly appreciated. I want to upgrade.

Retepa, I have DVDXCOPY; XCOPY XPRESS; and Platinum all installed on my computer, and none of them requires that Nero be installed. These programs are all self-contained and complete.

Hi, I'm using dvd decrypter to rip DVD on Win Me. Disk structure is FAT 32 so no support for files > 4 GB. When ripping to ISO files DVD more than 4GB, I'm getting 2 files, one of 4GB and a second file for the rest of it. the naming of the files is filename.I01 and filename.I02. What do I do to burn those ISO files ? Nero doesn't recognize these extention.

Nero not needed. If you're using dvd decrypter to create the iso files, then you only need dvd decrypter to burn them. (It will burn the iso files it creates). Just select the proper menu option. DVD Decrypter recognizes the split iso files it makes, and joins them together logically. (Just load in the main iso file). Of course, if the combined (two) iso parts exceed 4.36 GB, you will not be able to burn them to a blank dvd, and will have to use something-or-other (like dvd shrink) to compress the video.

In DVD Decypter if you rip the movie in ISO then use the .mds file to write or burn the movie. The mds file is kinda like an ifo file - tells the program how and were to find the iso files and how to play them I hope this helps
