You are right that there are people that will undoubtedly always find away around DRM especially the crowd who torrents... however, if DRM didn't exist then there wouldn't be a deterrent. Just think of how many people are deterred by the fact that DRM creates a little bit of a hassle for them when it comes to ripping media.

You can get very nice 8tb external WD duo books for 329 they have 2 red 4tb and can do raid 0,1 or jbod and you can connect them to each other to keep expanding..i just added 2 because my 20tb internal on my pc was getting full and its been pretty seamless...they even have larger a 2x5 and 2x6 the 2x6 is like 500 and their not as fast as the 2x4.... thats why I went with the 2....but if you look around prices have really came down on the self contained units that are the easiest to integrate. I actually think if you dont mind having a couple of dictionary sized books you cant go wrong with them....considering that a bare 6tb red is 300 and you have to install it or put it in something...IMO

I wonder about that. I realize it is a different media business, but the music industry seems to be thriving without DRM. MP3's purchased from Amazon have no DRM, CD's have no DRM and can be easily ripped. Maybe rock stars are not making as much money as they possibly can but they appear to be making more than enough to support their high-end lifestyles.

Has anyone noticed the dvdfab servers were down yesterday evening? The program kept coming up with "Unknown error". I haven't tried yet today.

No joke. All they could do was stop DVDFab from offering the software on their US website, and maybe serve up the US site to any IP address in the US. Direct IP address access to the site - as in the one Kelson provided, or somehow not showing a US IP address, still works.

That is direct to one of their non-US servers and the downloads are for people who have a paid license for DVD Fab. I've read people say the free HD decrypter from these newer downloads doesn't work for anything new any more. They have cut way back on the free decrypter capabilities.

No, what I meant is that they have cut way back on the capabilities of the free HD Decrypter so that the download is only really useful to people who have paid the fee for the software's full capabilities.

The RIAA certainly doesn't see it like that.

Oh it's for paid customers. Someone posted above about VPN' to an IP in Canada to get the full-featured free version.

The comment was that they were, as a worldwide strategy, not updating the free version as often. I'd guess their sales revenue has taken a hit since the takedown was put into effect. That has caused them to lessen the utility of the free version. With a non-US IP address I am told that one can still BUY the ripper or whatever the heck it is called.

There are only 2 versions of DVD Fab: the US version and the rest-of-the-world version. There is nothing free any more. The utility of the free HD Decrypter module has been substantially decreased. If you are looking for free, I think MakeMKV is your only choice that stands a chance of ripping current BD titles.

If you don't want MKV, you can use the full disk rip option to rip it to the HDD and process it with whatever you want. I ran it along side DVD Fab for comparison and found that MakeMKV kept up with DVD Fab and ripped >95% of current titles. Very few that it choked on and they have probably been accommodated in updates since I experimented.

Are you talking about the backup option in MakeMKV or something else?

How does that work in MakeMKV? The only thing I've noticed is if you select all the titles it will have a version of each one. So with a lionsgate title that would be hundreds. And too many to store on a hard drive.

There is a Backup menu option available before you open the disc. After you open the disc the option is removed.

If you do already have a disc open, you can just click "Close" from the file menu and the backup option will be enabled again. I was completely exiting out of the program and opening it again to enable backup before I realized I could just close the disc.

OK. Thanks. I see that now. Although It looks like it puts it in a folder format. Which is something I've always tried to avoid.

Although for being a free program, it does a lot more than expected.

In my case, a folder rip is preferred because it is easily fed to other processing tools like Clown_BD for main_title extraction. An ISO is easily obtained with ImgBurn if desired. That would be a preferred tool for someone like you who just does full disk rips to ISO.

ImgBurn is what I typically use with AnyDVD HD running in the background.

Hi Guys,

Not sure if this is the right place, but I'm going to ask my question here anyway. At least it's not about subtitles !

I have the three Lichtmond Blu-rays and I want to extract just the audio to FLAC with best possible quality and in the full 7.1 from the disc. Audio on the disc is DTS HD-MA. I also want each track separate so it shows up like a normal audio album on my PCH.

I've tried DVD Audio Extractor but it doesn't seem to recognise the 7.1, offering only 5.1.

I've also tried DVDFab but when ripping just the audio to either FLAC or WAV it doesn't offer 7.1 or 24/96. Strangely it offers only 48k and a bit rate.

So at the moment I've ripped with DVDFab using the audio copy profile which has given me each track as a DTS HD-MA file.

Any ideas on how I convert this to 7.1 FLAC ?

Googling on the problem has lead me to eac3to but it doesn't seem at all straight forward to do what I want. If this is the correct solution I'm afraid I need the dummy's guide on how to do it.

Cheers,
