    Hopefully this isn't against any terms of this forum, this is not an advertisement and I saw no rule against comparisons between products.

    I am wanting to back up my hd dvd collection on my computer and trying to figure out what program to use to do that/what both programs do to the file/etc. I used anydvd hd a long time ago and it worked well but now my trial period is up so I can't compare the 2. DvdFab HD decoder took around 3.5 hours to rip a hd dvd which seemed way too long. I have a 2.7gig C2D and 2 gigs of ram. I'm not sure if my hardware is why it took so long to rip or the program itself. I am using the xbox 360 add on if that makes a difference.

    My main questions are what features does anydvd hd have that dvdfab does not and will anydvd rip movies faster? I know anydvd is supposed to take out the hdcp requirement from discs, but that's the only real difference I've seen, which is why I'm here to ask.

    As far as I can remember DVDfab HD doesn't support the latest AACS encryption so you won't be able to decrypt newer HD DVD's and Blu-rays

    DVDfab can't handle AACS. I see no evidence to suggest dvdfab is attempting to tackle BD+ either. At least Slysoft has made a commitment: click http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1099973#post1099973
    dvdfab doesn't help me if I want to watch original HD-DVDs and Blu-rays on non-compliant HDMI hardware.

    What difference does it make if dvdfab can't even handle AACS?
