My new DVD's
Ela
I'm thinking I'll probably pay a little more and go with the season sets containing the extras.
 
Ela
Finally got around to ordering my own copy of season 1. Found one for a good price. I'm so excited. Though at standard shipping speed from the UK, it's going to take a while to get here. Here's hoping it arrives okay...

Maybe it will travel at standard by seven? Pfft
My views are my own.

VILA: I'm entitled to my opinion.
AVON: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.

More like standard by one. Or slower. The quickest I can expect it, according to the seller, is after Xmas. Wink
 
Ela
My DVDs arrived early! On Xmas eve! Grin

Now I just need to figure out how to watch them...
 
Ela
I ordered Series 2 today!

My nephew ripped the series 1 DVD episodes to my computer and now I can play them on VLC Player without worrying about the region. Grin

Glad to hear that! Now you can watch episodes to your heart's content like the rest of us. Cheers.

Yup! Makes me very happy! Grin
 
Ela
Welp, I just ordered Series 3 and Series 4.

That's a wrap. Smile

I ordered all four sets from the same seller. I figure I had good luck with the first two series, so...

Don't suppose any of these are region free?

No, unfortunately, but a region free dvd player is usually affordable and will solve the problem. That's what we did.

Ela
Nope, the DVDs I ordered are all region 2. I changed an old unused computer in my son's room (he doesn't live here anymore Pfft) to region 2. And also, my nephew was able to rip episodes to mp4 files which I can then play using VLC Player on my own computer, or I can play them on iTunes on my iPad.
 
Ela
Coming back to say that after all these years I found a way (without my nephew's help) to rip the B7 DVDs to my computer so I can watch them. My nephew only ripped the first 2 discs and told me how to rip the rest. I never got it to work till today. SmileShockGrin

Yay me. Wink

Good job, Ela!

I bought the DVD set recently and an external hard drive. I set my Macs region to 2 and plan on ripping everything to the drive soon.

Gotta love modern technology. (Though Id love a region-free dvd set even more, tbh)

Yeah, this region thing has really outlived its usefulness, except to frustrate those of us who want to watch things not available in our region.

Though I'm thinking, now that I can, I may buy some classic Who in region 2 and rip it. Classic Who is much cheaper in region 2 than in region 1, for some crazy reason, especially the out of print ones for sale by third party sellers.
 
JustBrad
Region free DVD players are cheap on Amazon. We have two.
Men of Harlech cease your dreaming, can't you see their street signs gleaming...
 
Ela
Yeah, I did look into a region-free DVD player. But I already have two DVD players, not sure my spouse would be happy for me to invest in another. Wink And I watch a lot of stuff on my computer anyway.

I'm afraid DVDs have outlived their usefulness too, as a media carrier. As a collection nostalgic piece - yes, but for the viewing itself I'd rather buy a download - or rip it to file, yes. So much more convenient, doesn't scratch or wear out.

I wish I ripped my Buffy DVDs but the technology wasn't quite there then and now I have two sets of DVDs with my favorite episodes which I can't play due to the wear and tear.

I wish B7 could be streamed somewhere, or sold as downloads... Like Big Finish audios.
 
Ela
You right, of course, about DVDs outliving their usefulness. I still like them because I avoid the whole DRM problem.

I rarely play my music CDs directly, I've always ripped them to my computer to play them on my iPod or phone. Same with audiostories that came on CDs.

Regarding your Buffy DVDs, the app I bought claims to be able to rip damaged DVDs, you may wish to give it a try. It's called WinX DVD Ripper. They have a very short trial period during which you can rip 5 minutes of something.
