    Convert DVD to video file

    Not sure if this is the appropriate place to post. I had Costco convert a VHS to DVD, now I have all these files. Basically it's a DVD of 9 different scenes. Any idea on how I can save into one video file so I can upload to Google drive? Thanks for any help.

    Hi there


    Handbrake is slow and doesn't "decrypt" commercial DVD's etc.

    Easiest solution --OK not free but not expensive is to use AnyDVD from slysoft (now called redfox these days) - it also works for Blu Ray and "de-regionalises" and decrypts commecial DVD's -- store as an ISO and play with VLC / KODI or whatever.

    The RedFox Project | Backup DVD, Blu-Ray, Netflix, Amazon

    Legal where I am but check your jursidiction.

    I think though making "Archive" copies of DVD's / CD's etc you have purchased is perfectly within the rules provided it's for your own use and you don't share on torrent sites -- similar if you buy a book or even have stuff on a kindle are you allowed to "lend" that book or kindle to someone else. I can't see any court prosecuting people for that.

    This whole area of "Legal Copyright" needs to be modified for the digital age -- so long as there's no question of Piracy involved thank goodness material can be archived -- otherwise it can be lost forever.

    @SIW2 - easy to say "convert to ISO but I think the OP want's to know how !!!!

    It's a bit like saying here's an equation - but omitting to say you need to be able to prove Fermats last theorem to do it -- and even though the initial concept looked simple X**N + Y**N = Z**N had no whole number integer solutions whatsover for N > 2 !!! Incredibly difficult proof which actually required 20th Cent mathematical techniques to finally come up with the proof. !!

    Fermat's Last Theorem - Wikipedia

    (whoever would have thought a topic on DVD archiving / transcribing would have got Fermat's Last theorem involved !!! -- Well the power of the W10 Forums !!!!).
