Windows XP Home Edition SP1 Intel Pentium 4 3.01 Ghz 1024MB (shared with AGP) RAM JLMS-H1 HD1665 SONY DVD RW DW-U10A 2 x 120 gb 7200 rpm Hello, I have been able to Compress VOB files off the H.D.D to an Xvid encoded Divx avi file at run time i.e processing at 23-30fps I would like to know if any members have been able to achieve it and I would like to know the average fps rate people are reaching using their ripping tools. <-----WHAT I DID------> First I used a simple software called Super DVD Ripper to check for the ifo containing the longest movie. I copied all associated files including the .ifo file to the H.D.D in DOS or windows. Note: If it gives an encryption error while copying in DOS or cannot create file while copying in Windows then just start the actual DVD/movie in Power DVD or a good DVD player and then press stop. After this you will be able to copy the actual movie files to the H.D.D Using Super DVD Ripper or Number one DVD Ripper after that is a piece of cake. For more info and the rest please post or mail me at *email address removed* I will be glad to reply.
