Hi All.

When I click on a desktop icon, I get a dropdown. One of them is Send To.

Can I add to this list? For instance....Send to...My Videos? Thanks PJ

I'm assuming you are using XP ---- Heres How.

What you do is go to the My Videos Folder in My Documents ( Example) right click it and make a shortcut say to the desktop.

Then do the following:

1.Open My Computer, and double-click the drive where Windows is installed, which is usually drive C.

2.Double-click the Documents and Settings folder, and then double-click the folder for the particular user.

3.Double-click the Send To folder.

NOTE:The Send To folder is hidden by default. To see the Send To folder, click Tools, click Folder Options, and then click Show hidden files and folders.

4. Double click the Send to Folder to open, minimize it, go to the desktop, cut My Videos Shortcut then maximize the send to folder and paste the My Videos Shortcut in to the Send To folder.

5. Close the send To Folder and all other folders, now when you right click /Send To, there will be the Option of My Videos.

A DVD is 4GB+!! (so it will take a while)

How fast is your DVD drive??

ermmmm, dont think you can rip a DVD like that just by using a short cut entry to 'send to'. You will need a program to unencrypt the DVD and write the files back to your 'my video' folder....

If they are unprotected, just copy & paste the VIDEO_TS folder to your HDD.
