I am thinking there has to be a better way then using Mac the Ripper which takes 45 minutes to RIP a DVD, then using HandBrake to Encode it for use in iTunes which takes another 30-45 minutes. Then I am left with a pre encoded 6GB stored image, and 700-1.4 image for iTunes after it is Encoded. I am also finding that Mac The Ripper has trouble reading some DVD's and I keep Getting VOB messages that either say PAD or DEL VOB? Why? Someone mentioned they stopped using Mac the Ripper and use HB to encode the DVD right away. What is everyone else doing I am curious because I want to go all digital, and I have 300 DVD's.
