Would you want to watch movies from your laptop during vacation? Would you want to backup your stack of DVDs to your PC? Well, then the answer is, Rip your DVD! Ripping DVD is computer jargon for copying DVD onto your PC's hard-drive.

Ripping a DVD is really very very simple, especially with a free program called DVD Decrypter. Unfortunately DVD Decrypter is no longer easily available. But still, few are available and you can find them by Google search! DVD Decrypter is a free tool which enables you decrypt or rip and copy the DVD to your PC's hard disk. You can download DVD Decrypter from here.

After copying it to your PC you can choose to :
  • Watch them with the likes of PowerDVD and WinDVD .
  • Copy or burn to another DVD.
Here is simple easy step by step on how to Rip DVD to your PC:

  • Install and Open DVDDecrypter.
  • Insert the DVD to be ripped into your PC's DVD drive.
  • Ensure that you have sufficient free space on your hard drive to store the DVD.
Start DVD Decrypter and select Mode -> File.

Then open the Settings window from Tools -> Settings.

Settings window will open up.
Select the File Mode and click All in Select Files from the drop down menu.Click OK.

Choose the Destination for your DVD files. Or click Browse to select your Destination.

Finally, click on the DVD to Hard Drive Symbol to start the ripping process .

The ripping or the decryption process starts.

When the process is completed,the DVD ripped files are in your computer.

That's it!Done! You have suceessfully ripped the DVD to your PC hard drive.

Now, you can view it or burn it to a DVD as well.

Handbrake is another free DVD ripper that copies a movie to a computer hard drive for viewing on your computer or iPod.
