I copied a purchased DVD movie to a flash drive.

Media->Open and then try some of the options.

How did you copy it and with which tool, handbrake maybe?

"Open Directory" should do.

Add: I like VLC for my DVDs folder (.../video_ts .../audio_ts, ) it shuffles the main menus of the DVDs... cool.

I copied it using Thunar file manager.

Hi Andy...

Is this a movie you purchased and are wanting to make a backup copy? Just as a heads up, this is still illegal. Please see here.

Regards...

Yes purchased.

I was told it was ok to make copies for personal use.

Guess I was wrong.

Why, so they can get rid of ways to play it making us buy new? Screw they, I paid and don't want (especially my nephews) to scratch it so I WILL(\can) copy it!


VCR's are legit too!

Not to mention the world sucks because "gods" tell them what to do but that doesn't seem (pun fun) shear crazy to them!

According to that Ars article:

Quote:
The librarian did grant DMCA exemptions for copying "short portions" of DVDs or Blu-rays for "use in documentary filmmaking" and for "nonfiction multimedia e-books offering film analysis." Teachers and students may also crack the discs "for educational purposes" and for "film studies or other courses requiring close analysis of film and media excerpts."
And hey, it's been educational.

LOL In my book owning and plagiarizing or pirating are very different; they can obviously-meteorically go to h e double l if they don't like it (capitalist never will!)

Not necessarily.

Depends on the country. You'll have to look it up for yourself. Media shifting and format shifting is legal in many countries. I don't know the current status in the US but it is one of those topics that goes back and forth as the Library of Congress gets an exception extended, or time has run out and an new extension to the exception is being applied for.

An uptodate librarian there should know the status this week.

What possible good, great or small, is served by that? Seriously!

What harm, real or imagined, would be done to any living creature if this person watched his movie from a media more convenient for themselves?

No, you were not.

Do not presume that you were "wrong" just because some random person says so.

Does it "feel" wrong to you to copy your movie to a more convenient media? Do you feel like a thief? A blood lusty pirate of the high seas? Did you set about to defraud someone, steal their life blood and enslave their children? No?

Or were you only doing an ordinary thing in the privacy of your own life for your own convenience?

The VLC advice is good! Just use the Open media options. I have also come to like mplayer for playing movies from my hard drive.

I posted the question because I have some badly scratched movies.

With the advent of flash drives, I think most CDs and DVDs are used for music and movies.

With mp3s, you can put a boat load on a CD for your car listening enjoyment. :-)
