    I have a nice DVD ripping program and rented a Redbox movie tonight (via my good friends in the RedBox thread) and got home to rip it to my PC so I can watch it some other time, and my program freeeezes everytime I try it. Are the DVD's hardcoded with some crap?????

    it's possible, but why worry about ripping it when you can just download a smooth AVI file?

    You probably aren't using the correct software. DVD Decrypter will sometimes freeze as will DVD Shrink. Use DVD Fab copy.

    Your problem is nothing to do with Redbox, and everything to do with the fact that the publishers of the DVDs are constantly tweaking and modifying their anti-piracy protocols. Every new disc which comes out could very well have a new copy-protection scheme on it that was not on any other disc yesterday.

    Therefore, what works today, may not work tomorrow.

    The only real solution is to buy your software from a company that offers constant updates in perpetuity for you.

    You will have to pay for this, but it's well worth it, if you have kids who like to watch DVDs, you like to travel with some DVDs, or you just don't want to risk your original discs by constantly using them, and would prefer to operate from legitimate backups.

    Ahem.

    Anyway, the program you want is from Slysoft, and actually uses two programs - AnyDVD and CloneDVD. Also, if you want to rip a movie down to some kind of a portable device, then you will want CloneDVDMobile as well.

    Absolutely well worth the one-time cost.

    Also, your DVD-burning drive matters. One of these cheap no-name drives can have a lot harder time than something really solid like a Plextor or a Pioneer.

    Hope this helps.

    says who? torrent files aren't copyrighted. It's just impossible to copyright a series of numerical sequences. Ripping a rented DVD is far more illegal than downloading a bunch of numbers.

    Wow.

    Um, just a bit of advice.. if you ever get tagged and charged with piracy, ummm don't defend yourself, whatever you do. Get a good lawyer, someone who actually knows a little bit about the law.

    For the record, you are exactly and dangerously wrong on every thing you think you know in your post.

    Along the same lines of thinking...

    Why is it illegal to decrypt a satellite signal?

    I mean, how is that different than looking at the moon with a telescope? EM is EM and the government can tell me which part of the spectrum I can look at, and how?

    I understand if you're running a cable from your neighbors house, but light that is broadcast to my property?

    Blame yuor local representative for that, thanks to the DMCA.

    That piece of crap legislation is so broad, it literally criminalizes ANY attempt to decode ANY 'encrypted' bit of information.

    Literally, therefore, if I were to write a sentence in pig-latin and you attempted to decipher it, you would be breaking this ridiculous stupid law.

    in court? ha. sure.

    maybe they will also bust me for playing online poker, or hiring 2 illegal aliens from the home depot parking lot to help me move. I ripped a tag off of my friends pillow once, I wasn't the lawful owner of that pillow.

    so your telling me that all these torrent files are copyrighted? how can you copyright these 160 bit hash values? Since there is an infinite number of possible files that would produce the same hashes, would they also be violated by copyright infringment? it's literally impossible. Besides, TPB doesn't keep records of it's members download data. Thats probably why you need a separate torrent client to download the file. any monkey can spend 5-10 minutes on google and figure out how to hide his IP while DL files anyway.

    ever heard of oink.cd? I was a member there and am currently a member of waffles.fm


    do some research man.
