Hi,

I've been attempting to rip my DVD's into MP4 format so i can transfer to my kindle and watch offline.

Trouble is most software downloads are a free trial and then pay, one let me rip a dvd but i had to put up with its logo on the film.

Found FileFactory which is completely free but when you rip it dumps subtitles onto the film.

Anyone know a good software which is free or a good software that is reasonably cheap and good value for money?

Cheers

I'm using a trial version DVD Fab at the moment which I'm ripping my DVDs with to an mp4 format but wouldn't play on the kindle so I used Handbrake to convert the file again to mp4 and for some reason they now play which is great.

One problem though I can't delete the converted handbrake file from my laptop! It says I need permission and click continue then just fails to delete. Don't get it? I'm the admin for the laptop so shouldn't I be able to remove it?

Anyone else have this issue?

I wonder if the DVD's are protected, if that it would be illegal to rip them.

Its not illegal to rip DVDs you own for personal use anymore, it is however illegal to bypass the DRM so the law is a bit of a nonsense.

Unbelievable that's totally free, can it decrypt DVDs? As I know Handbrake cant do that directly (altough there are some tutorials about how to rip protected DVDs with Handbrake, but that's trouble). Some other ripping program can do it but not free: http://www.dvdconvertersoft.com/dvd-ripper.html a freeware that can decrypt DVDs and is easy use would be awesome

BTW I just ask, I didn't say I would do it...

The free version will only copy the contents of the DVD onto your hard drive. You'd need a program like Imgburn to make a new DVD for backup, or Freemake Video Converter to convert the copied files to avi or mp4.
