Windows 7: A little help appreciated with DVD ripping please

The 5 GB setting is referring to the size of the output file. Your only other choice is 9 GB, for a dual-layer DVD disc.

Hi,
You can rip the DVDs through this software into any format you want (i think or it doesn't matter even if you rip it in avi format windows movie maker will accept that format) just go onto this site and download the software DivX DVD Ripper 1.7 . Also it is a freeware.

I have tried several different ways with dvdfab and two of my last efforts gave me no sound at all. That was by ripping through dvdfab and burning through win7 (which took about 3 hours to encode then burn) I have since tried going in and ripping/copying but each time the program dies off and the clock starts going backwards until it drops off competely... some of the others that I managed to get across, either the audio was out of sync or the picture was jumpy... think I have to accept defeat.

First, you shouldn't use Windows to burn...anything...ever. I think you are adding all kinds of steps to the simple process, or else you have a very slow computer.

If you want to test, rip through DVDFab, then download VLC Player and play the ripped files. VLC will let you specify the directory and it will play it from there as if it is was still the DVD. On the system listed, it takes me 20-25 minutes to rip a normal full length movie.

Assuming the movie plays fine, there's no encoding to do. The files are ready to be burned to DVD for playback. You just need software, such as ImgBurn or CDBurnerXP to create the DVD.

I'd be willing to help find the issue, but for now, fill out your system specs and we can go from there.

I am almost too embarrassed to say that I found that by simply following the dvd copy process through dvdfab [source D: - target D:] and just changing disk from original source to writable target half way through the process, it all works fine and I have eliminated the process of having to introduce windows to burn the disk. I can't believe I missed such simple pieces of information! I am so out of touch with IT! It also has no dvdfab logo in the top corner!!!
I looked at imgburn, which was painful trying to locate the actual file to download (too many commercials to defer your attention), I also looked at dvd author plus, and a few others which still wouldn't allow me to use a saved iso file to create a dvd disk readable through dvd players.

hmm it worked for one movie but not another, I'll give it a second try, the first time I used only the main movie, the second was a full copy..

EDIT: Yes it works, can only do it as main movie - Full movie won't work!
