Lobo, Yes any type of movie will work with MYMOVIES, if it plays in windows media center Or theatertrek MYMOVIES will work. For d/l movies you will need to input the info or search for the reall dvd movie in the online database to fill out actors,genre, etc. As for copying the dvds It just has the ability to copy no protected ones unless you use ANYdvd running in the background.
I prefer dvd shrink or dvd deycripter personally. I am in the LONG process of ripping all my 250 dvd's to hard drive, but with dvd shirk it does go pretty fast.
I rip as the regular dvd file format and keep full dvds for some and rip out extras and menus on others to save space. The benifit of using the dvd format is it keeps the files universally readable for other players such as networked dvd players, UPNP players like the dlink dsm-320. Just generally more usable. BUT the files are large! about 6 gigs per movie if you dont use compression.
TBD yet again :)
