The big bad money makers at the Record and Movie companies have confuzzled you it sounds like.

It’s only copyright infringement if you give it away to someone else. If you own a DVD and convert it to play anywhere else in your house or on your person, and only ONE VERSION AT A TIME, it’s totally LEGAL.  (ie you can’t play it in your living room while it’s playing on the sansa…)

My thanks to Thelastunicorn

i will check it out.

Hey, while the kids were playing on the computer, and some were watching cartoons, Daddy loaded Saving Private Ryan on the Sansa.

Earbuds on!  It’s essentially the same as watching it on the bedroom TV or the living room, isn’t it?  Same end user.

Yes, AutobahnSHO, I agree with you. And there’re so many software, like DVDSmith Movie Backup, can copy DVD contents to your HD, then play this folder with some player, without damaging the original disk.

Btw, the output files copied by DVDSmith Movie Backup can be loaded in above Any DVD Converter. If you only use this converter’s preview function, it will be totally free to watch a protected movie from your HD.

E.M. Free DVD Copy can free rip DVD to iPod, iPhone 3G, PSP, Zune.

I tried the EM FREE software but got an error message and couldn’t go any further.

So I tried the anyDVD free trail and was able to get it.  I did have to make some changes to get audio and for it to work on my Fuze, but it worked great for the short video.  Going to try anthother DVD and if it works, purchase it.

Thanks for the tutorial, should have remembered I saw it here earlyer instead of trial and error…
