    I was hoping someone could recommend a program for capturing screen grabs from DVDs (NTSC and PAL). I've tried a few different ones, and all I get is a black screen. I've tried different programs, but none work. I must be doing something wrong.

    Capturing video is a bit different from capturing screens. The best bet is to do as Jeff suggests and use a built-in screenshot function in the player software itself.

    You could also glance at the Wikipedia article on screenshots; see the "hardware overlay" section especially.
