    What programs are needed to burn a DVD to my HDD? I'm not worried about exporting to a Disc or iPhone. Just want it on my computer.

    ^ QuickTime Player with Perian installed will play all the video formats Handbrake encodes too. VLC will play al of them natively.

    rips and encodes the DVD to your chosen movie format
    just rips the DVD so it can either be burnt to a DVD for backup purposes or encoded to a movie format with another program ;)

    Since you just want it on the computer, Mac The Ripper will be fine. It simply writes a non-protected version of the original disk's files (the VIDEO_TS folder) to your hard drive which can be played with your standard DVD Player application. BTW- A cool "front end" application to play the movies stored on your drive (although not necessary) is called Matinee.

    mac the ripper can remove the protection and make a copy on your computer, handbrake can rip to another video
