A couple of weeks ago Download Squad posted about the DVD Rip utility, which makes it easy to backup DVDs:
There are plenty of applications that help you rip DVDs to your computer. But for the most part, you need to click through a series of long and tedious menus. DVD Rip provides a one click DVD archiving solution, no headaches required.
Rip DVD was put together by the folks at productivity blog Lifehacker. It’s designed to work with the popular DVD archiving application DVD Shrink. In order for Rip DVD to work, you’ll need to install DVD Shrink. But if you don’t already have it, don’t worry. DVD Rip includes a download link.
So what exactly does DVD Rip do? Basically, it answers all those tricky questions that DVD Shrink asks which you may or may not have good answers for. So all you have to do is insert a DVD in your drive, click the executable file, and wait a few hours until your disc is ripped.
