Aside from legal aspects, I've heard some people complain about decrypting DVDs with DVD Decrypter? Does anyone know of any downfalls to this program?
Some of the complaint's I've heard have to do with things like dropped frames or corrupted video...?? Anyone know about this?

I just thought DVD Decrypter just decodes and copies the files as they are?

If there is a big issue with it, is there any other (free) apps that are better?

(I'm looking for a solution that will work with 64-bit OSes, and while DVD Decrypter does as long as you have admin rights. I was using DVD43 which I like better, but I can't find a copy that is compatible with 64-bit Oses.)

I've been using the standard version of DVD43 on 64 bit windows without a problem with Handbrake.

I still use DVDShrink on my 64-bit Pro. Still works in most cases.

Lately, I've gotten away from using DVDShrink. Even though dual layer DVDs are still somewhat expensive, I've just been ripping them to the hard drive and leaving it at that (a portable 2.5" external laptop drive, that is). I'm really only backing up the good ones to dual layer DVDs. Everything else, I either strip out extras and just burn the main movie to a regular DVD or I don't bother and just dump it on the drive.

Do you have to run DVD43 in compatability mode or something? I haven't tried with Win7 yet to be honest, but the last time I tried with Vista 64-bit, it choked on me.

I guess I do still have an older XP machine (P4) sitting around that could rip videos with DVD43, and then I can move the through my network to my media server, I guess.

I just installed and run DVD43. I didn't have to do anything fancy.

Hey noghiri_x, did you have to change any settings in order to get DVD43 to work on 64-bit Windows? Every time I try to open the standalone version (as opposed to the 64-bit plugin which handbrake apparently doesn't support) I get an error message saying that DVD43 isn't compatible with 64-bit windows. Do you have to run in some sort of emulation mode? I attempted to change the program to run in Windows XP mode from the properties tab but that didn't seem to make a difference.
