How to Rip and Copy a DVD on Windows 7 with Free DVD Ripper
Agree or not, commercial DVDs are far too expensive to let you carelessly scratch and turn them White Elephants. Moreover, with the dropping price of a gigabyte, ripping DVD movies to hard drive is not only possible but also prudent idea. If you have already had such plans, congratulation! So now DVD ripping software is a must-have. Besides paid DVD rippers, there're also many DVD ripper freeware in the market, like HandBrake and WinX DVD Ripper, just name two.
I'm a big fan of DVD movies and I plan to backup my DVD collections to computer for better save. I have been using HandBrake to rip DVDs for 2 years and it works excellent. But when I recently upgraded my operating system from Windows XP to advanced Windows 7, it cannot perform the same as on XP. It usually stops working or even craps my laptop. Why? And can you recommend a free DVD ripper for Windows 7?
Since its release in Oct 2009, Windows 7 has won thousands of accolades worldwide. It features in the aesthetical UI, responsiveness and stability.
As for HandBrake, the cross-platform and open source DVD ripper freeware, it should have been compatible with Windows 7. But sometimes it's thought of as "Mac software" because it performs much better and more stable on OS X. In addition, though HandBrake has solved tons of DVD ripping problems regarding unencrypted DVDs, it still can't deal with copy protected DVDs individually. It has to take advantage of VLC or other decrypting programs to remove copy protections firstly then you can free rip DVDs.
So, if you're looking for an alternative of HandBrake to free rip DVD (even copy protected DVD) on Windows 7, here is WinX DVD Ripper freeware.
