A local public library has the original Fox DVD release of "From Hell to Texas" with this artwork. From Hell to Texas - Wikipedia
Picture AND sound are truly excellent for lossy Dolby Digital-and the film is presented in color and its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio.
But the DVD is discontinued, I can't find any used copies for sale and now that Disney has acquired all of these Fox film classics (God help us) there's probably next to no chance of it being issued on optical disc again, certainly not on BD.
Instead, there's only this, of whatever technical quality.
And it won't work in my Region 1 Pioneer LX500 BD player. Or will it? Amazon says its Region 0 but the back of the box says Region 2.
In any case, it will play in my SuperDisc enabled Oppo 95 player and via VLC player in my HTPC.
However, as my main concern is A/V quality, what are the chances that this Fox licensed Spanish pressed or burned DVD used the same digital master as the Region 1 DVD?
But if it was burned rather than pressed, and if can I then copy it to an external SSD drive, what's the best file format to save it in?
However, neither my Oppo or Pioneer players support ISO files. Thus, which lossless file format should I use and what software tools do I need?

My pc has:
And 32GB of ECC RAM
Given that my hardware supports ECC RAM's error detection and correction, could I expect a bit perfect result whether I rip the DVD and save it to a lossless MKV or MP4 file or use the Clone DVD app to make a copy of the DVD?
CloneDVD isn't really 1:1 manly used to shrink or customize the DVD. MakeMKV will be lossless rip. If you want a 1:1 clone copy and plan to burn it onto a DVDR then use IMGburn along w/ anyDVD.
If you are super paranoid you can check the ISO hash value and do multiple rips from multiple drives and PCs, if they all match you got a 1:1 perfect clone.
