Favorite DVD Ripping software?

I've been using Handbrake to encode my DVD Rips, but am wondering if there's something better out there. What's your favorite and why?

ImgBurn or CloneDVD + AnyDVD. I am not a fan of compressed files that can only be played on a computer. I'm also making more 1:1 copies of DVDs since DLDVDs are cost effective now (and have been for years).

Slysoft AnyDVD HD + CloneDVD2 + ConverXtoDVD4.
Why because they work.

The old tried and true combo of DVDFab HD Decrypter + DVDShrink to backup DVD's to disc. DVDFab HDDcrypter + Handbrake to rip to my Android tablet (Nexus 7).

Technically, your question is not accurate for what you are wanting to hear. Although everyone is answering you anyway.

Ripping = the process of copying the data from the DVD.

Burning/conversion/encoding is totally seperate.

In any case, I use DVDFab as well. You only need AnyDVD or DVDFab, not both as some have noted.

For conversion, I use VidCoder, which is just a GUI for handbrake.

'Mac the Ripper' to rip
Handbrake to encode to MP4
both on a Mac Mini, which is also the iTunes server...for the Gen1 AppleTV that is the primary method of viewing our updated media library.

We always used to have to hunt for DVDs - is the one we want to watch in the upstairs or downstairs family room? Now all DVDs are moved downstairs and the the upstairs TV uses ATV (though still has a DVD player for the occasional RedBox).

There are likely others, but DVDShrink should work for that.

AnyDVD for ripping, Vob2MpgPro for PC encoding (creates an unadulterated mpg), mencoder for portable device encoding.

Why folks use multiple programs to do multiple things is beyond me. I use DVD Catalyst and it does everything; rip, encode, transfer. Your able to select multiple images. It has selections for most mobile devices. Yes, it does cost $10 but the support is excellent.

Handbrake can only rip unprotected DVDs, if we run into protected DVD, it won't work for that. Anyway,it's a good free DVD Ripper. for some better, as far as I am using, some program like Leawo DVD Ripper can be a good choice. I love that it can rip DVD without quality lose with good converison speed. and you can do some simple editing like trim video lengt to get the part you want.
