best and fast way to copy DVDs ?
Posted 13 March 2009 - 06:40 PM
I have a friend that has a humongous DVD collection, want to go there and copy few dozens.
Whats the fastest way ? Handbrake + encoding takes too long ( prefer to do that at home ) so whats teh fastest way to do it ?
Make a ISO from the DVD onto my laptop disk ? Would it work with copyrigted dvds ?
I dont mind doing this and then getting home and creating a MKV from the ISOs ( double work I know ) which PLEX reads perfectly.. even ISOs PLEX read perfectly.. just want a fast way to copy things at his house.
macintosh based ofc

(You can also play the dvdmedia and video_ts folders directly in Plex, but they take up a lot of space.)
Ripit also impresses me because it optionally reports successful and failed rips to the developers so they can update the program to work with the discs. If you look at their forums, they actually go out and buy DVD's that don't work and then update the program to work with them.
You can also set it up to automatically start ripping when a disc is inserted and then eject when it's done.

The above solution is not free, but really easy to do and reliable. At least for me.

Pop the DVD in, and hit the rip button, then it makes a perfect backup

Mac the Ripper here! The older versions are garbage. You need 3.0 - r14
Ditto - although I did try out RipIt, the lack of control bugs me So back to MTR3.0 for me.

No, but there are other utilities to make an ISO from a VIDEO_TS folder. Personally I don't use ISOs and keep them as VIDEO_TS which will then work in Front Row and DVD Player as well.
can mac the ripper make iso / files ? from dvd
