How to download DVD onto computer

How can i download a DVD i have onto my computer, even if it has the copyright laws on it? I have found programs that cost $$$, but does anyone here know of a free one i can use?

Also, once it is downloaded onto the computer, is there a free program that will convert the files so it can work on an iPod?

Thanks. reply

To convert the file you can use It works really well, and then to download it I’m not sure, but if it’s like a famous movie or something you can download it off the internet You can get the software at and then You look up the movie you want and you search for it’s torrent on any site like google, and then you try a few, and see which works best reply

Can i record a dvd,[holiday’s and family etc] that i have recorded from the video onto a dvd+rw, onto the computer. I want to edit the films on the computer, and then burn them onto a new dvd or cd. Does this make sense? reply

ya boi

Ok to solve several problems or questions here we go!

Download (legally or illegally I don’t care) DVDFab Platinum 4.

Then, insert the media you want converted. Look on the menu to your left and there are several conversions (PSP,Ipod,Xbox 360,PS3, etc)

Simple to use.

Now for the editing.
For a cheap way use Windows Movie maker, for a better way use Cyberlink’s Power Director. reply
