    Last week I was experimenting with ripping dvds and it was working great. However, after ripping 2 or 3 dvd's onto my backup hardrive it stopped working. It said that I needed to have a dvd player open in order to get through the encrypted dvd...so I though okay no problem, I'll just use NVDVD player like I always have. But now a message pops up telling me that the disk is encrypted and must be opened using a dvd player...even though NVDVD is just that, a dvd player. Now I have tried 3 other dvd players and none of them work. I thought maybe I lost some codecs so I downloaded the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. This did nothing for dvds. So any idea what I'm missing ??? I plan to reformat soon, so I guess this would just be another reason to do that. Thanks!

    I think that you will find that a review of Forum Rules will not support this activity. The Copy Right for these movies belongs to the people who made the movie and copying them is a matter of legal question.

    Right you are dustyjay. tec_41, please read the TSG Rules, the part about illegal activities in particular.
