Any good free programs for this, tried a few, but they either required registration in 30 days (somthing went wrong and it turned into 3 days) or they failed to work (anycapture)

press 'C' while watching a movie, it should save to your clipboard, if u wanna choose where the capture goes, right click on the powerdvd while its open, like if ur watching somethin right click on what ur watching, go onto configuration, then capture i think it is and ur options will be there

well i thought power dvd was, but apart from that you can always use WMP 10, and pause it at the frame you want, make it full screen and use the print screen option

That doesn't work (I don't think). Believe it or not, if you do that the saved picture actually changes when you play the DVD again, and reverts to a blue screen when the DVD is stopped. I once took a screenshot of a DS9 episode with WMP10 and set it as my background, then I started playing the DVD again. I minimized MMP, and to my surprise, the movie was playing on my desktop... even though the image was saved as a jpeg, which cant do animation. I ended up searching on download.com and I found a media player that would take screenshots for you. They're not full res, but they look pretty good. I would google it.

Odd. When I still used windows I had WM9 and was able to do print screen to take a snapshot of the DVD I was playing and it worked fine.
