So if I have a DVD of a movie, can you tell me how I can rip it to get a 1080P copy? thanks in advance!


You can't get a 1080P copy from a DVD obviously, that's not the point. Can you get a free, standard resolution copy of the movie you own and stream it anywhere in your home completely free and legally? Yes you can. And you can get a full 1080P version of the blu-ray you currently own the same way. I have never understood why consumers would defend such patently anti-consumer practices by these companies, but whatever. Continue to waste your money on this service!

To answer the other guy, you can convert the ripped file into whatever format you choose so you can stream it wherever you want using hundreds of different free programs out there. You might be sad to learn that it doesn't include DRM, so you won't have as much trouble with compatibility for different programs as you would with a file that you actually paid extra money to download. You people are hilarious.

So they are "allowing" you to rebuy a copy of a movie you've already paid for? Ridiculous. It is 100% in your rights as a consumer to make as many copies from the physical media as you want, as long as you dont resell them obviously. Just use a free program to rip them, dont fall for this scam!

For what it's worth to anyone considering it, I've had a regular 3ds since late 2011, for those of you who don't know there was an issue with the 3ds where the ridges on the side of the bottom screen pushed on the top screen when closed. I put a full top screen protector on mine as soon as I got it, and while the screen underneath is probably fine, the pressure on the screen protector has caused it to bubble and get all effed up, now you can barely see the screen through it, I'm gonna have to put a new one on at some point. I don't think they ever addressed this, except in the XL.

I would never buy another regular 3ds. If you do, you really have three options. 1.Put a cloth between the screens every time you close it. 2. Glue some kind of rubber stoppers on it to hold the screens apart. Or 3. Install only a screen protector, which as I said, will basically be destroyed by the constant pressure, needing to be replaced regularly. Otherwise, I'm sure your screen would be destroyed. I'm hoping to ditch this one soon for an XL.


I've had a 3DS since launch, and my screen is pristine with no aftermarket garbage "protectors" on it. Nothing lasts forever, and I'm sure 10 yrs down the road there may be marks on screen from closing it so many times. But I would never accelerate the process of screen damage by placing a piece of adhesive plastic over the screen, or even worse, gluing rubber stoppers onto it.
