I travel a ton. I sometime take very long trips. During these trips I like to watch movies, TV shows from DVD and of course home movies. I really hate to take my origonal DVD media with me as I might lose them or damage them. I also like to watch my movies on my laptop, ipod or psp. The challange getting a good quality copy of my movies to these devices.

Slysoft has 2 products that I used to accomplish this. AnyDVD and CloneDVD-Mobile. These programs are easy to install and even easier to use. I am able to rip any DVD I have and take it with me. Even HD or BluRay movies. The use of these utilities is wizard driven for all the normal fuctions you might be using. There is the availablilty to tweak these settings if you have the need however I have no had to change these settings. Slysoft even has a video on thier site to help you get functioning fast with these programs.

Here are some of the features of AnyDVD-HD from thier website:

AnyDVD HD comes with same functionality as AnyDVD, but with additional features for full Blu-ray Disc and HD DVD support, including decryption of Blu-ray (BD+ and AACS) and HD DVD (AACS) movies. Allows you to watch movies over a digital display connection, without HDCP-compliant graphics card and without HDCP-compilant display. No need to buy an expensive monitor. Sweet! Playback your discs on your PC with PowerDVD Ultra, which otherwise do not run (titles released by Studio Canal, The Weinstein Company, Kinowelt, Optimum Releasing).
AnyDVD HD is the “must have” utility for the serious home theater enthusiast using a media center / home theater PC.

Another amazing feature of AnyDVD HD is “magic file replacement™”. Remaster any commercial movie disc using simple XML scripts. These scripts will “magically” replace the files on the physical disc. You can customize discs as you like without even making a copy to harddisk!

AnyDVD comes with its own UDF 2.5 file ripper, no need to install 3rd party UDF 2.5 filesystem under Windows XP.

Slysoft is the heavy hitter in this market. The utilites are reliable to a fault. The updates are always available and program lets you know if you need to update as you use it. The support, if you need it, is fast and reliable. Check out these products and more at http://www.slysoft.com. I highly recommend this vendor.
