Hello all! I have a small yet difficult question to give to anyone who is able to answer. I noticed in your FAQ section that there is a statement that says to not use DVD Decrypter to copy the files but to simply drag and drop them. I'm confused at why this rule is in place. I have used DVD Decrypter to extract video for years and I've even compared bitrates between drag&drop Vs. DVDD and the bitrates are exactly the same. Is the risk that the program would miss part of the file a likely contributor to this rule? Let me know!

DVD Decrypter is a great bit of software for ripping DVDs. As your tests prove there is no difference between using 'drag and drop' and using DVD Decrypter.

There is a chance that you might miss copying the .md5 (checksum), .txt and artwork files if you only use DVD Decrypter but I'm sure you're capable of doing this manually. :D

So, feel free to keep on using DVD Decrypter!

How do you move files to & from hard drives? Drag & drop.
There is ZERO reason to use dvd decrypter or dvd shrink unless its an official release with copyright protection.

schmoe75: I see your point, but isn't that what DVDD does? I find that moving files from the disc to the HDD is actually pretty slow. Please note that I"m not arguing here and rules are rules I just don't understand even IF the DVD does not have copy-protection, what makes a difference between D&D and DVDD.

Thanks for replying

I seldom use DVD Decrypter.:cool:
I need to rip my DVD to high definition video file to keep the quality and that's why I go to DVD Ripper (http://www.hd-dvd-ripper.net/dvd-ripper.html#139).

:stupid2: Well, actually, that wouldn't keep the quality. It would re-encode it by giving it
a higher bitrate than the original. Thus, actually degrading it a bit. :wtf:

I find DVD Decrypter faster. Its also good for slightly scratched discss because it can ignore errors, if I copy/paste directly I would get CRC error even if the video itself is perfectly intact.
