Can anyone advise me on the best free program to burn dvds to my portable hard drive?

Burn the DVD to your hard drive. With the portable hard drive connected, open computer as this will show your portable. Open your portable HDD from there. Drag and drop the DVD from your HDD to your portable HDD.

Use Imgburn its free and rip to your portable .Why do the job twice Rob?

Sorry forgot the link http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

I have went on to the img website, which one do I download..AVS video convertor,imgburn v 2.5.50, 2.5.40 or 2.5.30 or does it matter?

To be honest I dont really understand any of the jargon, it may as well all be in Swahili as far as am concerned!

You don't burn DVD's to a hard drive.

You burn data from a hard drive to a DVD.

All you need to do is copy the data as stated by rdave13

Cheers for that bremner, you really cleared things up there.

imgburn v 2.5.50, 2.5.40 or 2.5.30 or does it matter? Yes it matters two different things and avs Is not free. Get imgburn v 2.5.50,Mirror 8 for the download .If these are movies then its just what you need only a matter of choosing create image file from disc

I have just downloaded img burn and tried to copy some dvd`s but I keep getting Copyright Protecton System Type CSS/CPPM
this disc is copy protected, sorry imgburn cannot read copy protected discs.

Nobody here is going to tell you how to circumvent copy protection. It's illegal.

So,if I buy a dvd and copy it to my own portable hard drive so I can watch it when I go back to sea in a week or two, I will be breaking the law, even though I will be the only one watching it, and I will have the original at home. I dont think so!

I am only trying to get some advice on how to copy movies to my own portable hdd to save me carting dvd`s all over the place.
