So we all love movies here right? We all love seeing our collection sit there, available to us at any time for our viewing pleasure. Pulling out the sleeve, handling the disc, and going through the various packaging included with our favorite DVD (or Blu-Ray). But what about keeping a backup or ripping our DVDs to play on our portable media players?
Most of you may go through a retail store to look for old movies that were stolen or lost. Many times, older movies are out of print and we can't find them for the people. And sometimes, if they are available, they're expensive. The same goes for the high definition movies, and re-releases of older titles.
To avoid your discs getting physical damaged or lost or in order to enjoy them anywhere and anytime you want, here we will take Iron Man 3 (a 2013 American superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Iron Man) for example to show you how to backup Iron Man 3 DVD with original structures, how to copy movie only from Iron Man 3 DVD and how to rip Iron Man 3 DVD to iPad, Galaxy Tab, Galaxy S4 for watching on the go.
Step 1: - Get a DVD Ripper
If you purchased the Iron Man 3 DVD from Amazon, you may find that your DVD player can't support the movies. As far as I know, most of the DVDs sold by Amazon are encoded for Region 1 only and may not work on DVD players in other countries. Plus, if you want to play Iron Man 3 DVD on iPad, Apple TV, Galaxy Tab, Kindle Fire HD, you need to convert DVD to a common video first. And the DVD discs are easily physical- damaged, so it will be better to backup it to your computer. Therefore, a home-use DVD converter is badly needed to remove region code and make personal DVD backups from Iron Man 3 DVD, or convert to a common video file.
The best program I can recommend for handling (Iron Man 3) DVD disc is Brorsoft DVD Ripper (available for Windows and Mac users). It takes everything from the DVD, including the chapters, extras, and subtitles. With decent decrypting capability (removing CSS Copy-protections and DVD region codes including the lastest DVD discs), high quality video output and considerate backup solution and specific format templates for versatile PMP devices (iPad, iPhone, Apple TV, Xbox, PS3, Android tablets and phones, etc), Brorsoft DVD Ripper ranks top on the DVD ripping, conversion and backup application list.
