    Some DVDs have very odd 'biterror' copyprotection and ripping them normally leaves you with an image that's unplayable. Some commercial DVD rippers can fix this.

    I do the same thing for my father. He has mobility problems, so I ripped all his DVDs to his hard drive on the computer he uses for Media Center (which is connected to his TV). This lets him watch his movies without having to get up and change them.

    Some of them were unrippable and that got me looking for a better solution.

    Not my first rodeo with ripped dvd's they all work on 5 other computers just not the slate. :)

    Why would installing software on slate change it when the other 5 computer dont have that and it works fine on them?

    cyberlink worked!

    I have found that if you use DVDFab it works 100% of the time if it fails its either a damaged disc or you need to update. at least thats my experience.

    Most likely it is the codec pckg. Shark007 seems to be a top pick these days. Do a back-up, or restore-point and then try. It cured all viewing issues for me on my HP Mini.

    I don't have a slate yet, but I will check.

    I make copies of all our DVDs when we purchase them and store them on my NAS which is accessible via a media device by the big screen. Don't have to hunt and peck for the DVD we want to watch. I can view it from anywhere in the house as well, but is is not using WMC. Just use Virtual CloneDrive and play it from a network share.

    I use the combination of AnyDVD and Clone2DVD to strip out all the necessary stuff to make the ISO's and Clone2DMDmobile for mobile devices if I bother. Never had codec issues in the past.

    Will give it a check out when I get my Slate though.

    Handbrake is my favorite tool for ripping DVDs.

    DVDFab Decryptor (free version) and Vid Coder (Handbrake frontend) are my tools of choice.

    Resulting files play just fine on the Slate.
