I am attempting to rip dvd's to my hard drive which I can do with no problem with the any dvd program. What my situation is, is that my daughter want to use her clips from her cartoons in windows movie maker and put music to them. She can do this with downloaded segments from limewire but not directly from the movies on the hard drive. I have been instructed to download converters but have been unable to use the files with these converters. I am new to this video editing and don't have a clue where to start. I attempt to use converters that support the wmv format but they don't convert, can't use the key generators to use the programs or even use trial versions to even practice doing it. PLEASE HELP!!!!
