    This sounds basic but I havent found a good program to play movies that were ripped with DVD decrypter. Is there something wrong with me?

    Playing .iso's from the Hdd is easy. All you need is Deamon Tools or Alchohol 120%. Deamon is free, Alky has a 30 day trial. Once you've downloaded and installed the program, just mount the .iso on one of the "virtual drives" that the program has. It should autostart, then you can choose what method to play it with. If not, just open your viewing software and choose the drive that has the image mounted on it "you can change the drive designations through the options menu of both programs".
    I keep my virtual drive high like x:\ y:\.... that way I don't confuse them with physical drives that I have.

    most dvd players open iso (powerdvd, nero media player, windows media player etc) you will find that the player u use to play discs will also open .iso

    Windows Media Player > File > Open
    In open window
    Files of type: Media files [all types]
    Change to.
    Files of type: Any file [*.*]
    Select .iso file and play ignoring the extension warning.
    Do you want the Player to try and play the file?
    Check Don't ask me again for this entension.
    Yes.

    Because of the DVD play structure of that DVD, you may have problems playing the ISO file with Windows Media Player. It may work for some and not for others.

    That is why I use VLC Media Player listed above.
    The Navigation feature on the Tool Bar will allow you to get past any problem like that and play any part of the DVD.

    megabyte2,

    READ THE FORUM RULES!!!!

    I know I told you forum rules states start a new thread, but I also answered your question. So this makes it a multipost.

    Notice Veblin mentioned videolan as well. Also you can use daemon tools http://www.afterdawn.com/software/cdr_software/cdr_tools/daemon_tools.cfm ... mount the ISO and use what ever program you use to play dvds.
