Backing up movies on computer from DVDs is not exactly that new to us.
Regardless of the purpose you intend to get the files grabbed from your DVDs, we will share you 4 amazing software to rip your DVD collections and save them on your computer’s hard drive. Here we begin.
1. WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro
If you are going to go beyond simply ripping your DVDs and leaving them stored on your computer, WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro is made for you.

WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro is capable of ripping and converting DVDs directly into MP4, WMV, AVI, FLV, MOV, MPEG, H.264, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV, Android and hot TVs. If you need to copy DVD from a protected DVD, that’s fine too, as the program deals with that task and backup the DVD video content in the same quick way.
The interface of WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro is very intuitive and friendly. Just click on DVD Disc, ISO Image or DVD Folder to select your DVD according to your demands, select the output format on the right and then click on ‘Run’ to start ripping and converting.
