Computer question-Copying DVDs

Is there a way to get a pre-recorded DVD onto a SDHC card?

I bought a Asus eee as a travel computer and while the onboard storage is a bit limited, it does have a sdhc slot. Thought it would be nice to have a movie or two to watch.

Thanks,

There are a lot of good programs for that purpose. Google "DVD Ripping".

I use Roxio EZ Media Creator suite.

Try this. Allows you to get rid of useless "extra" stuff (French subtitles, for example ) and get the movie onto a stadard DVD through compression.

Use your favorite software after that to convert to WMV, AVI or whatever and transfer onto your card.

Good luck.

I've done this and it worked with no problems on my eee pc. I used a Kingston 8GB Class 6 Secure Digital high-capacity card to store the movie.

If you aren't good for anything else, you can always serve as a bad example.

Nero, just about the best program for burning DVD's. To rip it you want to use DVD Fab decryptor (free) and Slysoft's Any DVD. Together they will decrypt, remove regions and any other things that may prevent it from being copied. Nero Ultra 7 supports burning movies to flash devices and cards.

Thanks for all of the suggestions.

I received the first season of 24 as a Christmas gift and am trying to get it onto memory cards. I tried a program called Fair Use Wizard, but for some reason it only grabbed two hours of the four on the first disc. I tried a couple of different settings, but it didn't seem to make a difference. I am sure it is driver error, but I can't figure it out.

I'll download one of the above mentioned programs and give it another try.

Thanks again,
