Ok my head hurts (anyone have a Vicoden? lol) Currently I'm using Fairmount from the recommendations here for full DVD rips. I got a 6-Core Mac Pro with a LG Blu-Ray and LG Superdrive SATA as well as a USB superdrive. So far I had no issues until I installed the second optical that came with my Pro (took it out for a SSD and put it back in for 3 DVD drives). I want to make full backups, then use Handbrake to convert the backups or use the "batch encode.workflow" (keeping full audio, my Pioneer Elite VSX-33 supports full MCACC (ACC) and of course AC3. Fairmount detects the DVD's, the batch dispatched works, but Fairmount is now slow as **** if it even works at all. I've read other paid apps are better and since I'm ripping 300+ DVD's I'd rather pay for the best than settle for average. 1. Mac DVDRipper Pro 2. RipIt! 3. Wondershare DVD Ripper for Mac 4. MacTheRipper 2.6.6 (site shut down but it's still available, mixed reviews on current media) 5. DVDRemaster (heard it's better than Fairmount) 6. Xilisoft DVD Ripper Mac Any advice would be hugely appreciated. Also, if three optical drive rips (2xSATA, 1xUSB) on my Mac Pro are the issue let me know. I've read you can use as many as your system can use. Thanks! Hope y'all are having a great weekend and hope it's sunny and warm where you are.
