    I am wanting to make a back up of some of my movies and was going to try this. I found it and have no idea how to use it....what are ISO's and IFO's?....what "formating and all that jazz?

    Most of what I found just says that its illegal to copy movies......I am only making copies b/c I drive trucks and want to watch them in the truck but don't wanna take my originals......

    HELP ME.....HELP ME.......Good God please HELP ME....

    ISO means the dvd will rip to an image file that can be read with MPC or burned with a dvd burning program. An IFO wil rip the dvd as is, with the vobs/ifos, but i prefer riping in file mode because it's easier to torrent in file form (although isos are good too).

    As Scrubbin told me earlier, it's legal as long as it's private use only. IDK if that's 100% truth, but I'm just telling you what I heard from him. Besides, what is the MPAA going to do to a guy that copies a few movies that he bought? You bought the movies, they're yours.

    my point exactly.......so "file" is best......then what do you use to burn the movie back to disk as a DVD?

    I use Nero to burn it back to DVD. If you're just doing it to make copies and not backups on HDD, then just rip to iso mode and burn with nero.

    PUO? No idea? Probably some DVD security. I've only ripped a few official DVDs. Most of my ripping is from unofficial Nirvana DVDs. :p

    I think it stands for protected user operation, like when you cannot forward thru an FBI message or a trailer, IMO PUOs should be always removed so that you can forward thru FBI warning or trailers if you want to.
