OK, I just tried it in my 3rd and final dvd drive and it worked (DONT ASK LOL) ok ok, so i admit, im a little bit of a geek, but we all are! I am concluding (aside RE2) our ripping success depends on the drives and as far as I can see there isnt a dominant brand that works well. One nec crapped out easily (coudlnt even rip it with decryptor)while my new NEC is flying through it. My TDK could rip it, but then shrink couldnt open the files. I think it definitely depends on what hardware your using to rip the movies.. IMHO maybe the lasers? What do you people think?
