I ripped three DVDs to my computer with AnyDVD (Rip Video Disc to Harddisk mode). Once on my computer, I copied them to my USB stick (I'm trying to get ability to "rent now, watch later" and/or preserve). I tested playback of two of the movies. Neither one let me use menus. The first film I tried to watch started playing fine, but after about 15 minutes flipped to Spanish language and rest of movie was unwatchable due to language. The second movie played in english all the way through, but periodically there would be a 2 second blue screen as it transitioned from one VOB file to the next. I know I can always rip the DVD files to a DVDR, but I neither want a horde of DVDRs for movies I may only watch a couple times (and DVDR discs lose integrity over a few years, so not good for long-term). I know I can watch them with VLC or Shrink on my computer, but would greatly prefer ability to watch on my TV, so family can watch together. I'm not as concerned about having menu ability, as being able to watch in english start to finish and not have the blips between VOB files. Any advice on a good way to accomplish this?
