hmmm, most DVD drives simply use

the standard OS CD/DVD installer to do this with no special software required. Simply save it to the drive.

Yet, playing them is another matter all together, there are many third party software apps that you can buy for this purpose but here's a free one.:

best dvd ripper?

However, there is no one is the best. Since no one compared all of DVD ripper in the world. i had tried a Wondershare Dvd ripper once.
I recommend you use wondershare dvd ripper platinum, it is able to rip dvds to computer in 1:1. it is also capable to save dvd to computer in regular video format.
Not like some ordinary DVD rippers, wondershare can rip even copyright protected DVDs, so just give it a shot.

if you are using mac os, you can use the mac version of wondershare

If want be free, Handbrake will be a choice, but output not good as Wondershare. And you need to have a .NET component installed before you install it. So, be professional and be free.

Look at the amount of spam they generate and this is not a good sign.
