How to rip DVDs to hard drive? How to rip DVDs to computer? You might never think of such questions because you always enjoy your favorite DVD movies on your DVD player and it is definitely a great joy! But some people might have this concern:

I am going on a long trip soon, and would like to be able to watch my movies on my laptop while I am gone. How do I go about putting my DVD's on my hard drive so that I can watch them with Windows Media Player?

Problem comes, right? Now you need to consider how to rip DVDs to hard drive. Here, we say rip DVDs to hard drive, not copy DVDs to hard drive. Why?

Why Can't We Copy DVDs to Hard Drive?

Almost all movies are encrypted with CSS copy protection. Decryption keys are stored in the normally inaccessible lead-in area of the disc. You'll usually get an error if you try to copy the contents of an encrypted DVD to a hard drive. However, if you have used a software player to play the movie it will have authenticated the disc in the drive, allowing you to copy without error, but the encryption keys will not be copied. If you try to play the copied VOB files, the decoder will request the keys from the DVD-ROM drive and will fail. You may get the message "Cannot play copy-protected files".

How to Put DVDs to Hard Drive?

Now that it doesn't work to directly copy DVDs to hard drive, using DVD ripping software is the best way to put DVDs to computer. Then we need to think about the question raised at the beginning of this article - how to rip DVDs to hard drive with DVD ripping software? Here we'd like to take WinX Free DVD Ripper for example to introduce the steps.
