I have used exclusively DVD Decrypter to rip the DVDs I own to my PC. All are saved as .m4v extentions. But of the 15 or so movies on the hard drive, only 6 show up on the WD Live. What do I need to do to see all the movies?
On another note, is DVDFab a better alternative?
In its day, DVD decrypter was the best. However, DVD Decrypter is a very old program that has not been updated in years. There are many newer DVDs that will not work properly with DVD Decrypter because of new copy protection schemes. I would not use this obsolete program anymore.
DVDFab is a very good choice for a ripper. It is updated very frequently (sometimes several times per month) to deal with new copy protection schemes. There is a 30 day trial period, but even after the trial period is over, the ripper part of the software stays active perminately.
