Sorry if this is obvious to everyone except me... The built-in ripper in AnyDVD HD works perfect, but it didnt seem to remove the operation prohibited bits (in fact, I cant even find where to set the option). Is this possible? Also, is firstplay supposed to start the movie, or is it usually used by the studios to FORCE you to watch 1/2 hr of commercials? On all my rips, first play seems disabled.
