Copying Dvds

by ElmGrl / July 19, 2013 7:09 AM PDT

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop that I received as a gift. It runs Windows 8 which I like but I don't know how to copy my dvds to my computer. I travel a lot and don't want to carry extra movies. How do I download/copy my movies to my computer. I'm a novice..

In a word. Handbrake.

I used Handbrake and newer movies allow this with UltraViolet (read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UltraViolet_%28system%29 ) allow what doesn't move over due to copy protection.

Keep in mind the forum policies forbid posts about getting around DRM. Why?
Policies for one and second, consider the host of the forum.

PS. The other titles that I've used.

Sometimes I want the entire movie with menus and more. For that I use one item to get the DVD to an .iso and the next to play it. Here's the titles (both are free!)

1. ImgBurn
2. VLC Player
