    I just got an ipod touch and I would really like to get some of my episodes of Heroes on it. When ever i try to use mactheripper it only rips the first episode and thats it.

    I've looked into the program 4Media DVD Ripper and that lets me chose what content on the disk I would to rip from the dvd but the trial version will only do 5 minutes.

    Does anyone know of any freeware that would help me out?

    Also, when i was using mactheripper, i chose to do a main feature extraction, because that is what i do with all my movies (this is my first time doing a tv series) would doing a full disk extraction be a better idea? And would that make seperate files of each episode?

    I am not really sure where to post this so I will be posting it around in different threads (sorry about that)

    Thanks in advance.

    If i'm not mistaken it is not illegal. He is ripping his own copies of Heroes for use on his ipod touch. this is legal.


    OP: try Handbrake.

    pfft! what so illegal about ripping your OWN DVDs to an iPod? OP search around the forums and youll find your answer.

    while it really sucks and i completely hate it but the dmca makes this illegal. and its against the law for the op to do it and if you live in the usa its illegal to help. well it is here in the good old USofA, which philly is a part of.

    Not illegal (at least in the UK), its just slightly dubious. I'm reading law on this subject at the moment, its exactly the same as ripping music onto iTunes, only if you then sell on the disks or give away (i.e. by hand or via filesharing) or sell the copies you've made, will you get into trouble

    Try Handbreak, ( http://handbrake.fr/ ) it has a number of great presets that totally streamline this process.

    I don't think it's quite so clear cut, since whenever someone says 'DMCA' in the US the next person replies 'Fair Use', and a debate ensues.
