This is a guide on how to digitize DVD collections and transfer the digital backups to external hard drive. You may find some DVD to hard drive services can do this job. For instance, $2 for digitizing one DVD disc. Then if you have 100 old DVD discs, you will cost $200. A much cheaper DVD to hard drive ripping tool would be better.
Fast digitize any DVD, incl. protected DVD, old scratched DVD to MP4, MKV, AVI, WMV, MOV, FLV, HEVC, iPhone (XS), iPad Pro, Android, etc. and transfer your DVD library to external hard drive. Copy DVD to ISO Image file, DVD folder, MPEG2 file with original quality.

Some DVD to hard drive services claim to be able to rip DVD to hard drive, but when meeting a DVD with copy protection, they are helpless. While most of your DVDs are encrypted, you may need a DVD ripper which is capable of flawlessly tackling copy-protected DVDs.
Some of your collected DVDs may be scratched more or less. Many of the DVD digitizing tools can’t recognize and read old scratched DVDs. You need a powerful DVD ripping tool to successfully convert old scratched DVD to digital and keep some of the important data or precious memories you never want to lose.
If you’d like to transfer and play the copied DVD content on more devices later like Apple TV, iPhone, iPad, then you may choose MP4. MP4 has a good compression, small file size, and MP4 format can be accepted by most media players and devices.
You can also choose MKV to get a lossless output video file with no compression. Choosing MKV can keep multiple video, audio and subtitle tracks. However, the file size is so big, just the same as DVD.
From the above, we select one program named WinX DVD Ripper Platinum. This DVD to hard drive service for Windows 10/8/7 can seamlessly deal with protected DVDs, old scratched DVDs, or any other types of DVDs. You can use it to easily rip and transfer DVD to hard drive.
