you can just put in a DVD and watch it with DVD player without ripping

as said, we cannot discuss ripping encrypted DVDs on the forum

Considering that you would need to read the information twice (once to rip it TO your HD and again to read it FROM your HD) I would say that it would use less power to just play it directly from the DVD.

I'm wondering how fine the line is when in discussion about ripping DVDs. By using the words "ripping" and "DVD" in the same post am I in danger of breaking the rules?

I was ripping my pants while watching a DVD.

Yes, to take ANY of the data off the disc and put it on any other medium requires you to break the encryption. It's as simple as that.

Personally, I agree with the note that it would take twice as long for the process to be done, if you decided to do so. I wouldn't bother with putting any DVD info on a HD, unless (1) it was something I owned (like, for instance, the 2 DVD's worth of raw footage from my wedding last year) or, to follow that, (2) if it was some footage I'd want to edit (such as the raw footage). So, without going into the "do's" and "dont's" of DVD ripping, I'd just not waste the time on such an endeavour. Maybe I'm lazy??

If u were running on battery power, it would take less power to play a video off of your hard drive, than to run the disc drive to read the dvd.

There is a program called handbrake I have seen people recommend, but I'm not entirely sure how it works.

Personally, I have never burned a dvd movie or anything like that, since you can find good movies for about $5. I can understand your desire to copy the movie to your hard drive, and if you own the movie, than you have the right to use it as you wish. You are exercising the same concept as downloading songs into your itunes, so I am unsure why people are flipping out.

There isn't an encryption built into a CD but there is one built into commercial DVDs. So, it's different in the eyes of the law.
