    Is it possible to store and play DVD's from hard drive?

    What software do I need. I use Power dvd at moment and tried using smartripper to rip the DVD. It ripped ok jusr wont play.

    I think you'd need something to merge the VOB files together and then a player that will play VOB files (I'm sure Power DVD does).

    i`ve got windvd and this plays rips from "dvddecrypter" ok, just doesnt allow menu use...
    have to create a playlist in windvd of the vob files and save the playlist, then play it...

    I loaded win dvd and can play the vob files now.

    I cannot use power dvd to play them. Just stops instantly.

    Win DVD3 is a bit stuttery compared to power DVD. I cant patch it to 3.1 to be XP compatable so that maybe the problem.

    Also files that are stored havent got chapters like on DVD, anything that can be done about it.

    I am not using power dvd at the moment but I have done this with it. I think you are in disc mode. on the user interface there is a small icon that represents a disc. if you click on this you will then go into file mode, where you are able to make up a playlist of vob files to play.I think, if my memory is working right, the icon is towards the right of the player interface........thats on the default skin (i think).sorry cant be more specific.
    It worked great for me.

    All the best........Splice.;)
