Either one, ripper will only rip to your hard drive, copier will rip to your hard drive or copy to a temp folder so you can burn a dvd right after you rip it.
Here's how to do it with copier,
How to copy a DVD movie to hard drive and playback it?

Hi there
a REALLY Easy way -- download Alcohol 52 (FREE) and then copy DVD as an ISO to HDD. You can mount the ISO image and use your favourite movie / dvd software to play it just like a normal DVD.

http://www.free-downloads.net/progra...__Free_Edition

Large external small pocket size USB drives are CHEAP now - 500GB ones cost around 65 USD.

You don't have to COMPRESS the DVD's either - so you keep original quality --important on a large screen.

Now Compressing Audio is one matter --although I'm not a big fan of highly compressed mp3 audio sound -- compressing VIDEO is totally a different ballgame -- you'll see degradation VERY quickly - especially on larger screens.

DIVX for example looks utterly appalling on a 42 inch (or larger) tv set. It *might* be passable on a smapp 8 inch netbook.

Incidentally having the ISO's on a disl means you can re-burn the DVD's and you've got a copy. - Note for some DVD's you'll have to use Multi-Layered DVD's to re-burn back to DVD - although you can use DVDSQUEEZE to extract out different subtitles, languages and the extra features that nobody ever bothers with - and then re-burn.

Cheers

Ok Magic Ripper worked, kind of.

It at least prompted me to skip the bad sectors & continue to burn.

Now I just have to see if I got enough of the dvd & if it will even play.

Do I need to do anything else to this rip or is it all set now?

You should be all set as long as the whole movie is there, I've never had it ask me skip the bad sectors so make sure the entire movie is there. There may be something wrong with that dvd, that's why you were having problems before.

Why do I have an actual .avi file instead of a bunch of .vob files like when I ripped with DVDshrink?

Is there a way to turn all of the dvds I ripped with dvdshrink that have the .vob extention into a single .avi file?

You need to choose convert or backup, convert will convert ( obviously) and you can choose the profile, backup will copy them to your hard drive, either the whole dvd or just the main movie.

Ok so it looks like the part I ripped was only 1 of 3 sections.

Now these other 3 sections will play on Media player when I pop the dvd in initially... so why wouldnt it burn?

Since it does play, can I rip it in Media Player?

You got alot going on here,

I don't know how you only got 1 part out of 3, I guess that's what you meant earlier about skipping the bad sectors.

No media player doesn't rip video.

I can only guess that it is not able to record because of the dvd itself.

Hi there
Try my Idea -- Use Alcohol 52 to copy the DVD as an ISO to HDD
Mount it on virtual drive (Alcohol 52 will do this too).
Now play with VLC.

(Don't worry about DVD-7 or other DVD formats - the software will take care of that automatically when creating your ISO - you get a complete PLAYABLE CLONE of the original).


(Size these days of BIG CHEAP external USB HDD's you don't need to "Squeeze" etc etc).

You've also got a decent copy of the original -- the Alcohol 52 software will remove "protection" - select amongst the loads of options.

Job done

Cheers

SlySoft Products | Copy Movie DVDs with AnyDVD and CloneDVD
it is a pay program but they do offer a 21 day free trial
it does keep up with current copy protection and can also make a iso of a dvd or
do them in a folder like dvd shrink only thing is any dvd does not do the compression that dvd shrink does
