Pardon me if this is "off topic" to the TV forum. I understant that DVDs are copy protected, and that you have to combine Handbrake with that other software in order to rip/convert them. My question is why are DVDs treated differently than audio CDs? The only reason I could think of is that DVDs are mostly rented from stores and Netflix and CDs are mostly bought (and not rented). Is that why I can't easily rip even the DVDs that we've bought over the years (a ton)? I could rip some old ones. Why couldn't the rental companies make their copys different than the ones you buy? I'm sure it is legal to digitally convert a DVD that you own so it can be viewed on your iPad. Thanks for the info.
