One click is all it takes

 

Ok, now it's time to really tweak something. We're going use a pre-written script program to automate the whole thing into one-click backups.

 

For this you will need a very sexy tool called DVD Rip. What this does is tweak a small script based in an executable that will send all the commands required to DVD Shrink to rip a DVD to your specified location.

 

Once you have it downloaded, put it somewhere you can easily get at it, on your desktop or a shortcut to it in your start menu or task bar. The first time you run it you will be asked to configure the location you want and a few other variables.

Personally, I want this to be as silent running as possible, so I disabled asking for a disc name as well as notifying me when it is done. You can either save and quit or save and rip; your choice.

The executable will generate a configuration file in the same directory; you will need to keep this with the executable to ensure your settings are saved.

 

Congratulations! You now have a Home Theatre Ripping Machine! It's time to grab a beer and get ripping.

 

Remember the links to the software are:

 

- DVD Shrink

 

- DVD Rip.
