If you just want to watch movies on your computer, you can watch them with DVD shrink. Just open the files from DVD shrink and press play, it should play the movie in the lower left part of the program screen, which you can then make fullscreen by double clicking I believe.

As for putting it on the Zune, the best way I have found is to  buy a conversion program that will convert DVDs into files that the Zune will play. PM me for info on that program.

I haven't found a way to do this for free but I'm sure there is one if you look hard enough.

You will need a program called DVD Fab Platinum. It is not free but you might be able to find it on some torrent sites. This will take a dvd and convert it to a file that the zune can play most likely an .avi.

ok but the thing is, after i DVD shirnk it, there are a bunch of video_ts files and audio_ts files, i would think i'd have to get them all into one file in order to put it together as a whole on the Zune. is this correct?

do a google search and find out which type of files the zune can play. Most likely .avi. DVD Shrink may be able to convert the dvd to a .avi but i'm not sure. Using dvd fab platinum just put the dvd back in and there is a button the left of the program that will let you convert the dvd to a file for the zune.

When you hit the backup button make sure you have ISO image file selected in the drop down menu

Then if you want to watch the movie on your computer you can use VLC, not sure about the zune conversion as i don't have one.  Hope this helps.

Correct. DVD Shrink can play those files on your computer, but the Zune needs a single .wmv or .mp4 file.

To watch movies on my Zune, I put the DVD in the drive, use Cucusoft DVD to Zune Converter which basically rips the movie into a file that the Zune can play (.wmv or .mp4). Then once that file is finished, you add it to your Zune library, then sync it with your device. That takes a while because even though it is a .wmv, the Zune still converts it before it can be loaded onto the MP3 player. I don't know why it does this, but it does.
