I have a non encrypted dvd a friend made for me. It is not a movie, perfectly legal to burn/rip. It does not have any security on it or anything like that.. I just want to rip the dvd into a avi or mpg file so i can share it with a friend.. It's only about 7 minutes long.. Is there software out there that I can do all of this with one click? Please lead me in the right direction. I would prefer free software or a trial that can do the full rip.. I do have nero 6.6, and I am currently trying to rip the dvd into nero digital fomrat.. Not sure what type of file it will crerate, nor do i know of the codec i weould have to give my friend in order for him to watch it... I hope i could get this done tonight... Thanks in advance!!! I heard of a program called descc or something like that.. I cant find a working copy of it.. Please lead me to a WORKING program... Not some free trial that has limitations.. I have seen many of those and do not feel like paying for a 7 minute ripped dvd. OK thanks again..
