    I feel excited that I will become a college student 15 days later. There is only one thing making me distressed. I have a great collection of DVDs, but I cannot take all of them to the college. So I want to transfer the most favorite ones to my iPad. I used Mactheripper, but confronted the problem “This VOB indicates that it was mastered with deliberate bad sectors” where it either asked me to PAD VOB or DELETE VOB. I tried to PAD VOB but it makes the disk skip around chapter to chapter on playback. Here, I’m just looking for one app that would successfully help me rip these DVDs on my new MacBook Pro (MD101CH/A).
    Any idea or solution?

    How about 2 free apps?

    MakeMKV (free while in beta) to transfer the movie to a .mkv file (ipad will not read it, so you need another program afterwards...)

    handbrake (free) to convert the .mkv movie to a compatible m4v file.

    Handbrake will rip the DVD directly to a .m4v file. You just need the library package thingy - handbrake can get it for you.

    Plus one for handbreak. I use it all the time for this exact purpose.

    And I think you also need (I may be wrong on the name here) vlc. That was something handbrake demanded the first time I tried it. After downloading that, no problems whatever ripping anything I tried. You have to fill in the chapter names yourself, however.

    MacTheRipper hasn't been worth a flip for a while. I use Handbrake to encode, but I rip all my DVDs with RipIt. It's not free, but it's absolutely trouble free and is updated frequently as "problem discs" arrive.

    Is RipIt the one that allows you to rip without the audio issues that some of the other programs encounter?

    Handbrake and Mac DVD Ripper Pro for me
    Use them for different things, but never a problem
    RipIt is good also, I have it as well, but MDRP has never failed me

    I've used handbrake for a few years now, it's fantastic.

    DVDFab is great for ripping DVDs, used it for years in windows, now available for Mac and works just as well. Then need to convert VOB to m4v.
