    I was wondering if there's an app out there to help me transfer/rip some movie DVDs I've purchased to copy & transfer to my itunes.

    My preferred app for ripping my owned DVDs to iTunes is Mac DVD Ripper Pro (MDRP). It gives enough options, but is simple to use. Not, so far, had a DVD fail to rip. Fairly sure I found this recommendation some years back on MacRumors.

    I tried the Mac Pro free and the first dvd I tried it woukdnt read at all. I'm guess that most of these DVDs have some copyright lock on them. Thanks for the advice

    I use MacX DVD Video Converter Pro Pack. It's a mouth full but I find it a little more user friendly then handbrake. The encodings also tend to be smaller and of higher quality by default which I like.

    i tried using handbreak as i've used it before a long time ago. I want to rip a few DVDs but when I do the video is garbled and the audio is just buzzing...

    That is not decrypted. Handbrake stopped including that portion of the software several years ago. The easiest way to get it back is to grab it from XBMC or what ever they are calling it now and put it in handbrake.

    My problem with handbrake is you have to fiddle with it too much. You can get good results but if you don't do it just right you get huge files that look like junk.

    It's not free but I have found that MacX DVD Ripper and MacX Video Converter Pro work without much hassle. The website is http://www.macxdvd.com/special-offer/

    I use MakeMKV for ripping purposes and Handbrake for converting the .mkvs to a more device-friendly format. I originally used Handbrake for ripping but it crashed a lot in the middle of the ripping process (I looked for a solution, re-installed the latest version, ran Onyx etc. but nothing helped). MakeMKV hasn't crashed once.
