OK, FIRST, I just started Netflix and I want to burn the dvds to cd-r's...atleast rip them to my hard drive if nothing else. I have Nero 184.108.40.206 and Adaptec 5 Platinum Ed., so I think I am good for burning software. I heard you can rip the DVDs with Nero, but am not sure. Also, I heard that you can convert them into to VCD's that will play in any DVD player. Please tell me where I am right and where I am wrong. A detailed guide would be very helpful. NOW, SECOND, I want to rip music videos off of the TV and onto my hard drive to burn onto CD-R's to play in my Jeep's in-dash DVD player. I have a video input in the back of my laptop, so does that mean I am good for a tv tuner card...or do I need one of those at all? What is good software for ripping the MPEG music videos off of the TV? Please help me...and I am sorry to trouble you all with such remedial material, but your help will be ever so appreciated. Thanks, Charlie Marucco.
