Need to convert a DVD? Here’s how to rip a DVD on Windows. 😀

I found an old DVD and it was a video recording of my childhood. You might know DVD can be damaged pretty easily, so I knew I needed a backup of that cute little face.

DVDs are already sorta dead. 🙁

Even newer laptops don’t have DVD drives. You get the point.

However, your desktop computer might have an optical drive, so you can use that to rip your DVD collection and convert them into digital media format.

I’m also not a fan of watching content on my TV or monitor. I usually watch them on my iPhone, so I needed to convert the DVD so I could import it on my iOS device to watch it on the go.

You can use a DVD ripping tool to copy your DVD contents to digital devices for watching them later.

I found a DVD ripper software which helped me save so much time.

WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro is one program that will help you convert DVDs to 300+ formats and devices. 😉

After the DVD source is loaded into the software, it will read the content automatically. Usually, one DVD has many movie titles. There is no need for you to choose the main title manually because this software will choose the main movie for you.

Select an Output Format.

After choosing the main movie, now it is time for you to choose the output format or device you want. Click on the right corner of the software, then the format list will appear. You can see many formats and devices, such as MKV, MP4, AVI, H264, MTS, M2TS, FLV, SWF, HTML5, WebM, TOD, VOB and others. 😀

Android devices support most video formats. In addition, it allows you to choose digital devices (such as Samsung, LG, Nokia, Huawei, and more devices) directly if you are not sure which format to choose.

Click on the “Run” button.

The last step is to click “Run”. Then the DVD will be converted at fast speed. After the conversion, you can watch converted DVDs on your PC or digital devices.

WonderFox DVD Ripper is one such software which is extremely helpful. However, it’s only compatible with Windows OS. It’s fast and easy to use.

This software allows you to remove protections such as DVD CSS, Region Code, Multi-angle, RCE, Sony ARccOS, UOP, Disney X-Project DRM, and Cinavia protection. 😉

You can rip all sorts of DVD files. Even any DVD that has audio or video content can be ripped to a PC or digital device.

Backing up old DVDs will allow you to prevent damage and wear over time. You can also compress audio and video to save space without losing quality. Therefore, I recommend using WonderFox’s software.
