    I downloaded Handbrake and it looks good for feature films.

    (I'm converting to watch on my PS3)

    but it doesn't seem like it's very effective for extracting episodes from TV DVDs. Something I can turn on and let alone for a while.

    Is there a better program? or am I missing something?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    1. MacTheRipper 3.0 or DVDFab Decrypter (Windows) the VIDEO_TS folders onto your hard drive.
    2. Start a queue in Handbrake for all episodes and seasons.
    3. Leave for a week
    4. ??????
    5. PROFIT!

    2.6.6 isn't going to work with newer copy protection antics.

    I use handbrake its a free DVD ripping app for mac. Its got loads of pre set exporting formats for different platforms, iPhone, Apple Tv, iPod, Dvd and PS3 + plus loads more and you can set your own.

    You can extract each of the episodes and que them up and leave it running for a couple of hours for it to rip the DVD. Very good and its FREE!

    I agree with the suggestions below. Use the queue feature in Handbrake!

    OK, the queue system works, now that I've found it :)

    However, the files aren't recognized by the PS3. I've used the PS3 preset, loaded the files to a flash drive, the flash drive is recognized, but it says that no files are on the drive.

    Any thoughts?
