hey get yourself out of your own arse. I gave you a great link to a dvd encoding resource site with forums and guides to anything you could ever need to know about backing up dvd's.
In reply to:
i'd rather post at a site I go to regularly and get a reply in a week than the hassle of starting a a doom9 forum membership or whatever it takes
It takes all of 2 minutes to join the free forum there and you only need to register to actually post not to read, the rest of the site you can surf freely. You didn't even have determination to look at the site properly.
In future instead of asking a dumb question, do a 30 second search with google, find a resource site, do a bit of reading for YOURSELF and stop expecting people to do everything for you. Ungrateful lazy wanker.
Do us a favour , don't join doom9 as people there don't need your type who want everything done for them
