Some of my Blu Ray Discs don't come with Digital Copies and I want to put them on my iPad. Does anybody know the BEST software out there to rip Blu Ray Discs? Any help would be great. Thanks :D

There are two parts to this : Removing the Copy Protection and Ripping.
As far as the first, you are on your own. For the second IMO use Handbrake.
See : http://handbrake.fr

Yep, MakeMKV will create an MKV version on your hard drive - then use HandBrake on the MKV version to create an iPad/iTunes compatible file.

Note that it will also create a complete backup of the disc as another option. I do a complete backup and then convert with Handbrake (vs double converting).

MakeMKV isn't really "converting", it's just moving content from disc into a container (.mkv), based on your selections. It's not encoding anything.
