Off Season Project: ISO Disc Image

Time to get organized!
It has been difficult to manage the 600 and some football DVDs in my collection and relying on one master disc is a risky proposition.

The plan for 2010 is to create ISO files for each one and save to a few external Terabyte hard drives. This should better categorize and secure this library (primarily of game film).



HOW?

Easy, with DVD Decrypter.

  • Just pop in the master disc
  • Read the Disc
  • Write the ISO file to the chosen directory (external HD)


Then when I next need to burn an additional copy, I simply slap in a blank DVD, pull up the file, and BURN! That's it. I'd have my entire library on a few small, portable HDs that can be (plug-and-play) burned anywhere.

Will you break down the process of how this is done?
