    Magic DVD Ripper will rip DVD+/-R's, but not RWs.

    When you run the program, select 'Original MPEG2' for the fastest possible rip, without losing any quality.

    You get five free rips before you are forced to pay for it.

    Keep in mind, however, that ripping a commercial DVD using this or any other program is not legal.

    He dose not need a ripper. He just wants to copy home DVD movies to his PC. Please read post properly.

    You could download the free trial version of Nero 8. It lasts for 15 days.

    If you've got a DV cam with firewire, use Moviemaker.

    Just make sure your hdd is formatted in NTFS

    If it's on a DVD (that will only go in a PC DVD drive - not their camera) I would consider getting a free ripper the easiest and most foolproof way, but that's just my opinion...

    Otherwise Speedy's suggestion is the best IMO.

    Thanks for the replies so far.

    OK let's clarify a few things here.....

    1. This is NOT a commercial DVD - it is, as I said in my first post, some home video that has been presented to me on a DVD.

    2. It IS on a DVD - a DVD+R to be precise - no camera or anything else, just the disk.

    3. I want to copy from the DVD to the PC's hard drive.

    Hope this helps. Thanks again.
