Can you save a dvd to your computer? if so, how do you do it? Thanks for the help everyone.
You're probably better off googling.
A response here might be interpreted by the mods as being related to piracy and therefore a no-no.
Google is your friend.
Also, Videohelp.com is a pretty good resource.
I have an Answer
Yes, I can save a DVD to my computer. I use Nero Linux to make an ISO image of the original disc, or I'll use dvd95 or dvdrip from the Ubuntu Linux software repositories to make a smaller ISO or a video file. You asked us how we do it, so there's your answer. Windows and Mac users will have to go an entirely different route, and going into too much detail would probably not be allowed here. None of the methods I'm aware of are especially friendly to beginners, either.
If you have a Mac, handbrake is your friend.
Im just trying to save the dvd so i can use them to make more Amv. Im running out of clips to use.
You can copy the content of the dvd on your hdd with a simple copy command. The thing is, you won't be able to start the dvd as usual. You would have to use the dvd player program to start the .vob files in the directory manualy(the actual movie files, their number depends on the size of the movie and the number of chapters/scenes you can choose from the dvd menu when starting it regularly).
Separate names with a comma.
