    I am having so many problems with trying to save my DVD movie library to my external hard drive. All the support offered so far are in languages that I can't understand or seems to need a Phd in computers to be able to get the job done. I want a simple and straightforward method that even I can understand. I want to be able to just insert my disc and simply save the movie to my external hard drive to be replayed on my computer. Simple.

    If all you're looking to do is copy DVDs to your hard drive to watch, then try SlySoft's AnyDVD, or DVDFab HD decrypter.
    (Personally, I prefer AnyDVD - but you have to pay after the free 21 day trial).

    Incidentally, SlySoft are based in Antigua

    I am still having to open the video TS folder. I am looking for some way wherby I just click on the name of the movie in the hard drive, and it runs automatically. Is there any way that can be done?

    Your best bet it to re-rip the DVD and take "Movie Only"(no extras, one language, no menu, etc etc), then run that VIDEO_TS folder through VOB2MPEG (also free). That will give you one, large MPEG2 file.

    Hi hech54. Thanks. Your suggestion works. However, there are 2 issues that I would like to discuss. 1. Is there anyway that I can get the mpeg file exactly as it is on the dvd? 2. What happens in the event that I want to burn a copy from my hard drive onto another DVD?

    Hi Sanlyn, thanks for your input. The problem is that I intend to re-locate out of the country and plan to leave the original dvd's at home, travelling with my external hard drive only. I would like to have the possibility of re-creating those discs from my external hard drive exactly as they were originally.

    I save my DVD rips as ISO files. Then I set filetype ISO to autorun VirtualCloneDrive. DVD type is set to autorun MPC-HC (or any other program that plays DVD). Should I want to burn a DVD+R copy of the DVD ISO, I just use ImgBurn.
