I'm sure the answer to my question is as simple as a few clicks, but I'm not as technologically as inclined as the rest of you. So here goes. All I want to do is save the movie to my hard drive so I can watch it there. I know space is an issue, so I am planning to buy a 750gb external hard drive to library my movies. I've tried using AnyDvd to "Copy to Hard Drive" but when I go to where the files were saved, its's there but in the form of a multitude of files, non of which are playable (as far as I can decifer). The same goes for the option of using CloneDvd2's "Dvd Files" and "ISO/UDF Image". So my question ultimately is, can anyone please tell me how to save a movie to my hard drive so I can watch it without having to burn it to DVD. Any response will be greatly appreciated. By the way, I'm running Windows Vista on a HP laptop with more than sufficient storage space, if that is of any importance.
