    Yes, because you always have to copy the Original to harddisk.
    You can do that with your DVD writer. Than use DVD2one.
    Then copy the files from Harddisk to DVD-r/+r (DVD writer)

    Read a thread re: ripping and it was suggested that a DVD ROM be used for the ripping to HD.
    Then burn using the, well umm, burner.
    This due to dvd burners being poor/slow rippr's.
    I was having trouble with DXC "error reading source" NO MATTER WHAT I DID! until I read the post re: slow at ripping.
    After reinstalling the dvd rom along w/ burner...everything is fast and easy now.
    Rip w/ ROM burn w/ writer
    ps- I'm a Freshman at this and certainly this is most likely just a fix for my situation. ;-)
    This forum is VERY helpful!

    I just bought my burner; my first DVD drive ever. (Besides on my laptop)

    I will be buying a DVD ROM this week, not only for the speed of ripping; but to save wear on my expensive burner.
