Handbrake is a little bit complicated for green hands. I'd prefer some apps which is easy to use.

 I looked at downloading dvdfab, and in the Licence Agreement, it said you were only allowed a "30 day trial period" of the product before you had to purchase a key.  How is that free?  (or was this article written before it went Pay-2-Play?)  OR is the freeware that they're referring to the 30-day trial (i don't wanna look like an idiot, so I posted all of the options i could think of... #X^d)

Also, i'd like to add that sometimes i read peoples signature's thinking it's still part of the post.  I bet I'm like the only person that does that. #8^D

there is the free rip to hard disk feature mixed with other 30-day trial functionalities.

Software Editor and Moderator @ cdfreaks.com  Imgburn is the best DVD Burning software coded today. Besides the fact that it is freeware, ( I would have gladly paid for it, I donated to LUK many times, ) Its just the best. Nothing else comes close.IMO.

semi related: What's a good program fro mextracting frames from a movie DVD. At my office i get requests for that all time time. My bosses have a DVD movie but for some reason or another need a standalone frame. Ive made do with print screen and photoshop/gimp but their has to be a better way, a MaximumPC way.

One of the deciding factors for me to use ImgBurn was taht it supported scripting.  I've leveraged that functionality for myself when performing multi-disk backups... FULLY AUTOMATED, I dont have to pick and choose files and tell the program to start... do this 20+ times while I am backing up to dvd/cd/bd-r's... and waste all day (and make my arm hurt!).

 

If you're interested, when you download it, to get more information: give the command line switch: /h or /help to see all it's scripting functionality

Ummm DVD fab suposedly has a virus according to McAfee. If this is true, i dont think it should be recommended...

I have been useing DVDFab since Ver.3  (they are up to Ver.5) and it has been one of the best Software purchases I have ever made.I cant stress how good this software is, in the 2 + years I have used it I have never had any problems with viruses or spyware with this product (and there Customer service is second to none).

Yeah i agreei've been using it for several years, without any antivirus program, computer is still good as new.

Did you read the user summaries?  No viruses found.

ImgBurn can create ISO, too.

A bit redundant to have two programs that do the same thing.

avatar

TheMurph

Okay.  What if you're on a netbook, which has no CD drive, and you just want to create image files of some of the contents of your hard drives?  Why would you install ImgBurn.

The two programs offer similar functionality for the ISO creation part of the equation, but that's not to say that one should always be used in place of the other.  Just givin' you options here.  :D

So...

Once the files have been violently ripped from their formerly lovely abode of a CD or DVD, they're just copied onto a thumb drive, plugged into said netbook, and run from it like from a CD (in the case of a an application, like, um... Norton Internet Security...) ??

avatar

Great article. Great content. Good to hear from the Murph again!

But I have to ask...

What the HELL are you doing with a NETBOOK? Perhaps you got drunk and thought you were buying a really cool laptop...???

I expected so much more from you...

I actually miss hearing you on the podcast. Maybe you can drop by sometime and let us hear your heavily breathing voice again.

Keep up the great work and best of luck with your new career. It's always good to see you drop an article into the mix. Your stuff has always been worth reading.

avatar

TheMurph

Wellll...  I already have a pretty souped-up laptop, and I kind of wanted something that was less back-breaking for my morning commute.  Hence a netbook.  That, and I love the battery life -- I can jam my word processor for, what, 6 or more hours?  That's a lot better than lugging around a heavy laptop that can barely get to three on a full charge.

I would love to heavily breathe on a podcast guest appearance.  You should start an online petition or something.  ;)

Thanks for the kudos, by the way.  I'll keep bringing you free software as long as there's free software to... bring!  That was very Braveheart-y, in hindsight.

Murph did your netbook come with a NullModem cable so you could connect your netbook to your laptop through the network ports? That would be about the easiest thing to do to transfer files back and forth.

avatar

TheMurph

Negative.  Wireless only.

And to be honest, the netbook introduction was just a way to tell the story in a better fashion than saying, "oh hey, look, CD burning applications."  In a perfect world, I'd just tell everyone to rip their files into ISOs and mount them with Daemon Tools.  But that's not for everyone, you know?

avatar

Bender2000

Get back to me when you get all those programs onto the 4-8GB SSDs that netbooks come with. And when you try to run some games on them. Or even trying to run h.264 video. Other than the setup, this was an excellent article.

avatar

TheMurph

4-8?  Psh.  My netbook comes with 160GB.

avatar

horzo

I'd just buy a cheap external DVD-ROM, too. But if you insist on going this route, you'd need software to actually mount the .iso files, eh? I use Daemon Tools Lite for this.

avatar

TheMurph

Bingo.  Great piece of software.  I would have mentioned it, but I didn't want to double-up (as I've highlighted it pretty recently)

avatar

Keith E. Whisman

If your doing this so you'll have an easier and speedier time of it later on in life yeah I would do all this too, But.

 

But if I had alot of programs on DVD and CD it is infinately faster to purchase a $40dollar external USB DVD/CD Burner and plug it into the Netbook. But as I said if you have alot of time because this will take up alot of your time to do if you hava a lot of software to convert to ISO and Other formats to work be installable from a hard drive. 

avatar

JAshtonX

Lol Instead of doing all that just share a cd-rom or somthing from another computer. unless you need the cd's on hand at all times.

Ahhh man.. i was messing with ISO burning applications all day yesterday. >.<
