    I use windvd myself, don't have any problems with it. You get it for free with various hardware. I have like 4 originals already :)

    First Look here to get a good overview and a download source.
    http://www.digital-digest.com/dvd/downloads/showcategory.php?cid=13&scid=10&detail=low
    I'm using Power DVD 4.0 because it was shiped with my DVD Drive from LG
    Zoomplayer is also a good one and free for Personal use (http://www.inmatrix.com/files/zoomplayer_download.shtml) Last Personal version!
    Winamp with plugin (Vidamp) also for DVD Playback.
    Maximus DVD is also nice i've heard but not sure.
    Windvd nice also, I used it on my old pc, no problems

    Hope it will help more than confuse :eek:

    dvd decrypter is great yes, you can also use dvd2one to downsample so large movies fit on a 4.3Gb disk, quality loss isn't noticable usually.

    Gordian Knot can rip movies from DVD, encode it to DivX, XViD, or what you want. Good quality movies in 700MB. But only for backup purposes of course. ;)
