Jeffrey found the right utility to rip DVD movies to your Mac. You know, for backup.
First, you need a Mac. Any recent model will do. Second, you need a SuperDrive for the DVD…
No SuperDrive on any Mac these days.
Finally, you need MacX DVD Ripper Pro. That, and some time (and not much of that) is about all you need. The app rips standard DVDs– the kind you made yourself or the kind you bought– to any of the popular digital movie formats.
About as simple as you can get.
