An EAC for DVDs?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The best ripper for CD's is EAC. What's the best ripper for DVDs? I'm talking about music AND movies. IS there such a thing as the EAC of DVD rippers?

Thanks in advance.

I use DVD flick for movies, it's free and easy to use. I don't use it for music though, I use eac for that.

I use DVDFab HD Decrypter. Like the name suggests it also can rip HD-DVD and Blu-Ray. Free, simple to use, never had a problem.

I'm not sure the secure mode ripping with error correction that EAC does would be necessary for DVD's.

When I say music, I mean music dvd's... I don't think EAC can rip from music dvd's... (I don't mean video on dvd's, I mean just straight audio from dvd's)

Why not? I have several DVD's at home that are a bit scratched up... I want a way to get a bit-perfect copy of the data on there onto my computer, like I can with my audio cd's using EAC.

The problem with the DVDs is that most of the times if not using DL media, you need to compress them to make them fit into the single layer DVDs...

I use Any DVD and Clone DVD with no complaints till now, it do not ahve all the bells and whistles of EAC, but hey they work fine....

So there's no secure ripping for DVD's? Sorry for being insistent.

I'm just speculating, but it seems that DVD's don't have the exact same issues that CD's do in this regard. I would think that if the copy was not bit perfect that you'd easily see any corrupted data in the form of dropped frames, pixelated images, things like that. I've never seen that on any of my copies. Either the standard error correction is pretty damn good or bit perfect copies are easier to get from DVD's. But to be fair I don't think I've tried to copy a badly scratched DVD.

I don't know enough about the nuts and bolts of the DVD rippers out there to tell you for sure if any of them are using some kind of secure mode. So basically I'm no help at all.
