    well for doing that you will have to rip the dvd
    i guess the dvd's u copied were protected
    its called CSS thts why u were getting bad video
    so there are certain ways to counter that but
    i would not be able to discuss here as its against the rules
    you can google for it
    :)

    Hi Tango !

    I might doubt you have gone wrong ! Let me give you a option of doing the one you want and mostly wht I do ....

    Using CDs and DVDs without a drive

    Virtual CD copies your CDs and DVDs to the hard drive of your PC or Server using highly efficient data compression techniques. The virtual CDs are then run in virtual CD drives which are automatically set up in Windows and have all the functions and features of physical CD drives.

    Advantages of Virtual CD:

    * Up to 23 virtual CD/DVD drives
    * Up to 23 CDs/DVDs accessible at the same time
    * High speed access to an unlimited number of CDs and DVDs
    * 1:1 access to CD- or DVD-images stored in a network
    CD/DVD data throughput at hard disc speed (200x CD-ROM)
    * Accesstime up to 93% faster than a phys. CD-ROM drive
    * Concurrent access of several computers to a CD/DVD image

    Download : http://www.virtualcd-online.com/vcddemoe.exe
    More Info : http://www.virtualcd-online.com/

    Download the applications and you know wht to do next ! So next time please do not copy dvd's as such ! Coz most of them don't work !

    This is best application i have seen . Also older version v4.04 can be seen on old Digit CD !

    Try tht and tell me if u landup somewhere !

    Regards,
    Vinay

    Again the new comer thing...have noticed the same thing with other members too...specially new ones..they post their replies on 2 to 3 sections together..
    Was really so frustrated the last time when i almost spend 5 minutes solving the chaps problem and then when finally submitted the answer; whet to other section to find the same question exactly....Totally Disappointing Experience..

    use dvd decrypter to rip (its legal to make backups of movies u own)

    u need to download a dvd-decoder
    then u can use windows media player or any dvd-supporting player 2 view the movie

    u can use the IFO file also...VIDEO_TS.IFO to view the movie instead of opening each VOB one-by-one and interuppting ur movie
