DVDFab – DVD Decrypter’s Successor? Seems that way

Posted in Beginner at 1:27 am by gloriouscomputing

I’m so old-school, I thought CSS was still the only game in town when it comes to DVD movies.

I found out how wrong I was when I came across “10,000 BC” from another region. “Wrong region”? I’ll just copy the DVD to fix that, I thought.

Long story short, turns out a lot of old software can’t handle some of the new little hackish protections the movie industry figured out how to add to new movie DVD releases. Namely, neither DVD Decrypter nor DVD Shrink could handle it.

So what to do? Just rip the DVD to the hard drive with DVDFab HD Decrypter, then burn it with ImgBurn. Problem solved, and with free software to boot.

Now I could actually watch the DVD I bought. If only I had pirated it, I wouldn’t have had this problem… Yay for punishing customers, MPAA.
