I just bought a photo/video/Mp3 player and wanted to know how to rip DVD's to play on it. Also, is there a way to get shows recorded on my Comcast DVR box into my PC or this new player?


BTW, I just got the wife a Wolverine MVP9000 60GB unit at the Business Costco expo for $300

Talking about copying from a DVD to a Burned DVD?

No, I just want to be able to play my legally bought movies on my Laptop or this new Player. The rep at Costco said to rip it to Divx and it will be well compressed and good quality. How much space do movies usually take up compressed like this?

Ahhh, Divx is anywhere from 600 to 800 megs. last time i converted a Divx movie was a few years ago, and it took about two - three hours for coding...

what format does it support. I use a program called pocket dvd to rip them .wmv's and put them on my phone. It works really well and you can chose the size to fit different screen sizes. for my phone it's 320x240 and a typical moive is about 200mb's

Shocker what model DVR do you have. There is a way to get the videos off the DVR onto your computer. You have to use a Firewire port and special drivers for the DVR box...
Motorola just says dual tuner HDTV receiver.... :shrug

also it will do .avi's too and it was like 30 some odd dollars and is called pocket dvd studio. It's a simple easy program to use. Look into it http://www.pqdvd.com/

well the program I told you about might work. The .avi uses the divx codec. try the free trail and see if it works. It will let you do like 10 mins of video. If it works I'd go with that
