Anyone got any experience of dvd rippers? Want to rip dvds to a Samsung tablet and there seem to be a few rippers on the market.

Thanks :-)

They're all much of a muchness. It can take quite a long time depending on your PC. I.e. a more powerful one will be quicker. Rip to .avi.

If Handbrake still exists, that's supposed to be good.

Oh and it is illegal to do. Admittedly, in the same way that making a VHS copy of a movie from the TV is illegal, but just so you know.

I used to rip DVDs and will happily advise you how to do this. However it is a long and labour intensive process. You have to un encrypt the DVD, download it to your computer and then reformat the huge file into a format that your tablet will recognise. You would then have to choose what format you want from, AVI, XVID,DIXV, MP4, H.264 and many more.

It can take an entire evening or overnight depending on the power of your computer to do the number crunching.

There is another way though, which cuts out all that hard work and that is to simply download a ripped version of your DVD. That way somebody has done all the hard work for you.

Life is just too short to rip DVDs any more. :-)
