Im new and lost in the dvd copying world. I have read several guides but havent found what Im looking for. Currently have dvd decrypter, dvd shrinker. tried to copy the movie ladder 49 took over 4 hours and got a blank disc. I used scuba petes guide followed it word for word and ended up with a blank dvd. But what I really would like to know is how to copy a dvd movie to my hard drive. the above mentioned movie is on my hard drive in a winrar compressed file, how can I get that to an avi file. any help would be greatly appreciated.
