    I have a DVD set which i'm looking to rip onto my hard drive but have never done this before.

    The dvd's are in NTSC format and I know if I can get them to my hard drive in a file, i can convert them into PAL. Thats just one obstacle. The second is they are copy protected.

    I have Nero 7 Ultra, Real Player and ULead.

    Which is the best to use or am I on a non-starter with them being copy protected? The dvd's play ok through my PC but i'd like to watch them on my television.

    For making backup copies of DVDs, I use either DVD Decrypter, RipIt4Me or DVDShrink.
    All are freeware and easy to find.
    See here for further information : DVD Decrypter

    Just downloaded it so will see if it does the job.
