Ripping DVD's with DVD Decrypter


This is what you will first get when you run DVD Decrypter. There will also be a DVD Decrypter Log below this. You can use DVD Decrypter to Rip the DVD files to your HDD or you can use it to Rip an ISO image of the DVD. However the first thing you will need to do is make sure that Source is set to the DVD Drive you will be using to Rip the DVD. Now insert your DVD and you should see a list of files appear.


Set to File Mode


As mentioned earlier you can use DVD Decrypter to rip either the DVD files to your HDD or to Rip an ISO image of the DVD to your HDD. We will want it to rip just the files so in order to set it to File mode, click Mode --> File. It may already be set to file by default.


Select Destination Folder


You have to select a Destination folder for all the DVD files to go. To set the folder click the little folder icon under Destination and a little file browser will pop up. Make sure that you select a partition with enough disk space for the entire DVD as DVD's can reach over 8GB in size. If you need to create a folder, there is a Create New Folder button on the File Browser. When you find the folder you want the files saved into, select it and click OK.


Rip DVD


All that is now left to do is click the button to Rip your DVD. The ripping could take anything from 10 minutes to 1 hour depending on the speed of your hardware and of course the quality of the DVD. Repeat these steps to rip your next DVD(s) as well.
