Windows 7: Movie Question

31 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium
Movie Question

I just finished installing Windows 7 for the sole purpose of using Windows Media Center. So far I'm very impressed with the interface and the overall experience.

I just finished ripping a DVD to disk using "Magic DVD Ripper"s fully functional 30 day trial. So far it seems like a very good product. I ripped the DVD to MPG2 Original format which brings to mind a question about what quality to use. I'll pose that question in a future thread.

My question for now is how to edit the details about the movie? Genre, Description, Artwork, etc...

Does this happen automatically somehow? If so where is that feature's settings?

Can this be done manually?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thank You,

Roger, if you do go with Yammm make sure to enable the features on the DVD tab. With that, anytime you insert a new DVD in the drive it will make a folder w/ artwork and metadata for you. You can then use your program of choice to rip the movie to that folder.

Windows Mail/ Movie Maker question
Hey everyone, me again with another question that should be simple to answer. That question would be, instead of using a USB thumb drive to copy the Windows Mail and Movie Maker 6 folders, could I use an SD card instead? An SD card is more convenient for me anyway, so that's why I ask.
