The way of multimedia entertainment changes rapidly with the development of electronic information industry. Streaming movies, TV series and music online via Netflix, iTunes, HBO and more is accepted and enjoyed by modern entertainers in droves. Then many people and experts claim that physical DVD will soon disappear just like cassette. But at least for now, it’s just a fantastic talk. We often see hundreds of DVD discs filing up in drawers or an entire cabinet at DVD aficionado’s home around. Or we ourselves have just collected some DVD movies, dramas for years more or less. No matter what, where there is DVD disc, there is the requirement for DVD ripping/backup to hard drive. This is because:

– Ripping DVD to hard drive helps protect DVDs (esp. the older, expensive and memorable ones) from being damaged, scratched or lost, saving much visible space at home at the same time.
– Storing physical DVD library into hard drive in digital format endows owners more freedom to enjoy them on smart devices (e.g iPhone, iPad, Android, HDTV) conveniently.

Best Freeware to Rip DVD to Hard Drive

Speaking of free ripping DVD, the first thing many DVD owners come up with must be uber-popular open-source software HandBrake. Absolutely, HandBrake is able to free rip general and CSS-locked DVDs to MP4/MKV. But take note that it can only unscramble and free rip CSS-ed DVDs with the help of another file called “libdvdcss”. In other words, ripping DVDs guarded by other copy protection schemes like region code, RCE, Sony ARccOS, UOPs and Disney DRM are beyond HandBrake’s ability. So why not turn to a more powerful and dedicated DVD ripper like WinX DVD Ripper Platinum?
