    DVD Remaster Pro is a paid one
    Handbrake is a very popular free one.
    Some stuff that Handbrake can't decrypt can be handled by Mac the Ripper (only rips, no re-encoding)
    /edit; And don't forget to grab MetaX too...I haven't found anything on Windows nearly as good. (It adds all the metadata to the re-encoded file)

    i am having trouble ripping 2 of my movies to my mac, i tried Ripit and mac the ripper, and they both give me errors.

    i have tried on a pc with dvd decrypter and dvd shrink and still giving me errors.

    the 2 movies in question are SAW 4 and resevoir dogs

    they simply wont copy to my machines.

    any ideas?

    Sorry no.

    Are you sure they aren't blu-ray or something?

    Some DVD's just don't use the 'standard' copy protection. Then you have to get into the more expensive options for decrypting. I don't have any experience with those - all my DVD's ripped just fine. Of course, my DVD collection is mostly older discs, I have stopped collecting movies altogether.

    You can always run DVDShrink on a Windows VM :) works fine :)

    Not all movies will rip with the current version of any of these softwares. I've noticed that the majority of problems come from Sony DVDs.

    Since you have access to a PC, try DVDFab HD Decrypter (it's freeware). Then you can use DVD Shrink or whatever to recode.

    Hello,
    I tried Mac The Ripper which can rip a DVD but I can't find a feature that makes an .ISO from the DVD. (Without any encoding or ripping)

    Ok there is the command line way with "dd" but I'd prefer a GUI with a possibility to chose languages to delete and so on

    Any ideas ?
