Now, once I receive a disc, I just pop it in the drive, rip the ISO image to my portable hard drive and store it away as a master disc.
I have toyed with the notion of ripping the complete video files entirely as .avi / mpegs and store on a HD to viewed via a media sharing network, but it is completely limited to the DLNA/LAN where it is set up and not as practical as just throwing in the original DVD.
1. Open DVD Decrypter
2. Select MODE (ISO) > Read (the DVD you have in the drive)
3. Choose where you what the disc image written to ......
4. Hit the Graphic at the bottom.................done
To burn, just do the opposite (Write > source [local storage] to destination [DVD] ).
