OK, I actually have two question here. I purchased EMC9 a few months ago, but due to a recent Ipod purchase for my wife, I'm finally actually making use of the SW. Mainly I'm ripping our CD's so I can get them on her Ipod. I found out about Roxio from TIVO desktop where I was trying to move TV shows to my Treo.
Anyway, I'm having trouble with DVD's. When I purchased EMC9 I thought for sure that "DVD playback" was a feature. Well I've inserted a DVD (real/Hollywood)and I can find no way to play the DVD on my computer. Obviously I have a DVD burner, and in the past using the older Roxio 6 I was able to create a few DVD's from TIVO recordings.
I'm running Win2K on a fairly new computer (Athlon 64 X2, 3GB memory, 600+GB disk, Nvidia Gforce 6800). I'm only running Windows Media Player 9.XXX which is one of the reasons I was interested in Roxio. I have a whole host of SW available: Roxio, Nero, Winamp, WMP,..... none of which seem capable of DVD play back.
So the two questions: How do I play/view "real" DVD's on my computer. The second question is how do I "rip" DVD's to my hard drive. It seems that the DVD's I've tried keep coming up "protected" and will not copy/rip. Am I going to need "alternative" methods to get my real DVD's moved over to my hard disk?
Thanks for the help.
