I want to copy pre-recorded DVD's to my MacBook pro. I am a cricket fan and I want to copy the 2005 and 2009 ashes series to my MacBook pro so I can show them in the States when I go there later on this year. Can anyone help me in getting started or give me some pointers as to how I do it? I would appreciate any help offered.
PS: a friend of mine said i should use Handbrake, but acctually i dont know how and its embarrassed to ask him again:(
Since the videos have been recorded to a DVD, which means all of them have been encrypted, you need to decrypt the DVD and then you can copy them to your MacBook pro. Handbrake is a free ripper and it can help you rip your DVD but I think the quality and the time the process will take will not satisfy you. I used it once and found that it is too cheap to make me happy with the video files copied to mac. Then one of my friends, also a film fan, introduced the Brorsoft DVD Ripper for Mac to me. I have to say the tool is better and faster than those I have tried. It is intuitive and easy to use. The converted films and home videos look great on my mac and tablet. You should give it a try and I believe you will find it useful.
Nout wrong with Handbrake, It's a great package.
