The thread was an attempt to find out how to rip DVDs for non-legal uses, be it copying them for a friend, making them a torrent, or whatever.
I cant agree with that. I have plenty of files on my PC. Some i have turned into DVD's. Now instead of burning multiple DVD's and actually costing me more $$. I did what this person did. I put it on a external drive and let my friends spread it around.
Just cause someone is PC literate doesnt mean they know how to leave things in RAW format or how to rip/copy/burn DVD'd. Heck i still can rip my DVD's for backup purposes. I can Run Windows VIsta without a problem but i cant do something simple like that.
Plus how do we know it is still in RAW format. I have burned plenty of .avi, and other files to DVD that work just fine. They are not RAW format. Again this are just assumeptions. I am not trying to argue with you Trotter or with hte Admin. I am just stating that there wasnt enough info given to know exactly what the purpose was gonna be.
