Windows 7: Keep my DVD Collection on Computer

Keep my DVD Collection on Computer

Hi guys, I am wondering if there is a free way of ripping DVD's to computer, I tried Handbrake, but that costs, I want a free program that can rip DVD's and convert for free.

This way if a DVD gets scratched, I will always have a copy.

handbrake shouldn't cost you anything - it's free.

if someone tried charging you for it, then they're breaking the terms of the gpl-license.

Another way if you have lots of free hard drive space is to create ISOs out of the DVDs. Saves on conversion time & plays exactly like the DVD. Depends on what you want.

For example, they may work for some discs but not others, or they seem to have worked but the copy is flawed.

AnyDVD is a bit expensive, but it really is the best option. If you have a large collection of DVDs you want to store on your PC, its certainly a worthwhile investment IMHO.
It just works as expected.

Isn't it still illegal to break the encryption to DVDs? I back mine up by using an HD video capture device, then I can store them in any format I want without breaking the law (as long as they are for personal use).

Surely if You have paid for them, they're yours; it is legal to rip them and do not share with anyone, it's legal.
