I have that program, and it does really strange things if the dvd is encrypted, and it can't break the encryption--like "lose" the dvd player...

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Check out a manufacturer named Archos. Something like an iPod, but geared much more towards video. The higher end offerings are shirt pocket size, work like a Tivo to record TV, and have a web browser with WiFi and dozens of other goodies.

You can rip DVDs to the device, or play a DVD through any standard player and record via audio / video out.

I have the AV 500 - it is an older model (copule of years) and has a 100 GB drive. I have about 50 movies on mine, all my digital photos, and my entire music collection.

I had an Archos MP3 player. It had flawed software that they acknowledged but never updated. I'll never buy another Archos product.

I'm a big fan of Handbrake for Mac. Let's me save DVD files in just about any format I want, from AppleTV to iPod and Quicktime. Play them on my laptop or through video out to a LCD TV.

I use a program called AnyDVD to remove the encryption and region codes from the DVD. It runs in the background automatically when you insert a DVD. It is perfectly legal if you own the DVD and you are doing it for personal use.
