OK, I am still feeling quite a "happy" state from being able to rip DVDs so I am going to post what I have found is the easiest and fastest way to rip your favorite DVDs. Just follow these steps and depending on the speed of your PC, you'll have your first ripped movie in no time: 1. Go download Eazy VCD here -> http://www.eazyvcd.tk/ 2. On the MAIN PAGE, download the program and the patch. 3. Click "Download" at the top and download the ASPI Layers for your version of OS. 4. Install Eazy VCD first, then the patch and the ASPI Layers. 5. Go here and follow this very helpful and clear guide -> http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/sefy/direct6.cfm 6. Insert your DVD, follow the guide and voila! I will say this: After following the above steps and setting up Eazy VCD (which took about FIVE MINUTES), I had my FIRST ripped movie in exactly 7 hours and 38 minutes! Now that wasn't so hard at all, was it?
