What is the Fastest Way to Rip and Backup DVDs to HDD on Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1, Windows 7?

I have two PCs, a laptop running Windows 10, and a more powerful desktop running Windows 7 with an i7 Intel Processor and 8GB RAM. It is not the best, yet powerful enough to cope with all my personal stuff, ripping DVDs to hard drive or remote hard drive being nothing difficult.

With a large collection of DVDs and plenty of space on my 2 TB hard drive, I’d always like to rip and backup my DVDs to my library in its fastest way in order digitize my whole DVD collections. So, what is the fastest way to rip and backup DVDs to HDD on Windows 10, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 7?

Among many DVD rippers, WonderFox claims, with the latest upgrade with 1:1 copy mode, its WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro is the fastest DVD ripper that is able to rip a DVD to hard drive in just 5 minutes!

Well, it is just advertisement, I am not carping, but I know normal users like me are unlike to get a DVD ripped in just 5 minutes. I am just wondering how much time it is going to take and let’s see.

As you can see I am running the registered version. The register button here is grey out, it’s not clickable. And if we click About, we see there is a remove license button. So my version is fully registered and there is no limitation on this version.

Fastest way to rip and backup DVD to HDD

I am going to use the kids movie Toy Story 3 as the example. I am currently running the latest version of v9.5 released on Sep 29, 2017. There are 350+ built-in profiles in WonderFox, among which “Rip a DVD to Digital copy in 5 Minutes with Flawless 1:1 Quality!” is mentioned on the website. And Main Movie in 1:1 Quick Copy Mode is believed to be the fastest way to rip and backup DVDs to HDD.

Let’s see how long it is gonna take to rip a 98 minutes (7.4 GB) Toy Story 3. And this is what I do. Check it out.

Slow in DVD Ripping? How to Rip DVDs the Fastest!

Follow the above button to download and install the fastest DVD ripper, insert the DVD to your DVD drive to get ready.

Step 1. Load DVD

You’ll have to manually add the DVD to the program via the DVD Disc button, hit OK and get it analyzed.

Analyzing and loading the DVD usually only takes seconds. After the DVD is loaded, you will see title 2 marked as the main movie. Or check to manually select the right title.

Step 2. Set profiles for ripping

If you click on the output format, you will see there are different profiles, including those for Apple Devices, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Apple TV, iTunes, Final Cut Pro as well as Common video formats MP4, WMV, AVI, MOV, MPEG. The Web video profiles enables you rip DVDs to YouTube, Facebook and Vimeo compatible formats for uploading. Make sure you select Main Movie in 1:1 Quick Copy Mode and you are supposed to get an MPG file with selected video and audio track from the DVD.

Step 3. Rip

Okay, after the profile is selected, you can hit RUN and go directly ripping. It takes about 9 minutes to rip the DVD Toy Story 3 to MPG, which I assume is the fasted way to backup a DRM DVD along with other DVD protections to hard drive. I have also checked the output quality and it is excellent! The only problem it takes 4.22 GB disc space bigger than it estimates and I don’t think it’d be any problem for me with much free space.

Take Ages to Rip? Tips on Speed up DVD Ripping

There are different possible reasons why the ripping is slow. If you rip a DVD quite slow, check WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro, the very DVD Ripper for Windows 10 with Main Movie Copy to MPG file. It is super-fast with great video quality but takes some disk space. But what if we just don’t want an MPG file? We see MPC-HC is able to play MPEG2 files on Windows, but how about iPhone iPad or your Android devices? Say, if ripping to MP4 is your must-do, is there any tips for WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro to speed up DVD ripping?

  • DVD Ripping is CPU consuming, so make sure no other programs are running if you want to speed up the ripping.
  • Make sure the CPU Core is set to the max number and CPU Priority to Highest, this makes the program to take full advantages of your CPU for ripping. You can check so if don’t have to do anything else.

  • Choose MPEG4 as the video encoder for MP4 instead of Smart Fit or H.264. H264 does offer better video quality, but it takes longer than MPEG4 for ripping.

I’ve just purchased iskysoft converter ultimate and am not happy. It takes between one and two hours to rip or copy a dvd to hard drive so I’m looking for something faster.
I’m a pensioner who can’t afford to buy a dozen programs looking for one that works.
I have a collection of brought DVDs that I’d like to rip. Copy or convert in a good quality format to my storage hard drive to be watched via the usb port on TVs. Before buying any more programs I need to know it works really good. I’d like to copy or rip one complete dvd so I can time it and see what types of files it works with like avi, mov mob. Plus out TVs use PAL format. Is it possible to copy one dvd?
Regards Steve

is there a way to get a trial with the capability to download a full dvd and not just 5 minutes? im using hand brake right now, and it takes hours to finish. I’d be willing to buy the software if i can see for myself that a whole movie from a dvd can convert in 5 minutes.

thanks

I would be interested in trying this our. I also tried handbrake but way too long to be a legitimate way to transfer 100 dvds to a drive.

Hi Hunk,
I am in a similar predicament in that I have around 50 DVDs to rip. Can you also send me a one time full use trial key, I will be more than happy to purchase the software once I can try it. I am also using Handbrake and it is just taking wayyyyyy to long.

Hello Hunk,

Thank you for your review of this software. I too have a collection of DVD’s that I would like to rip and have tried tu use VLC following some instructions online to do so. What I have discovered is that it re-ripped the same movie file over and over again and never gave me a resulting file. It might be that I am doing something wrong however I can say that it took about 30 minutes to rip an hour long video.

Are you still able to give a trial sample of the software from WonderFox?

My goal is to reduce the file size and not lose too much video quality. For this I am guessing that I should be choosing h.264 as an output file. I want it to be a file type that is commonly used amongst many video players. If you have any advice on what file type I should use other than h.264 for compression/compatibility/speed of ripping, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help, God bless.

Thank you Hunk for your rapid response.

I know that I can find out by trial and error, but I am curious if you can tell me what is the file size difference (approximated, perhaps as a ratio) between h.264 and mp4 as well as the quality difference. I would assume that the difference in quality observed would be dependant upon the native screen resolution upon which one is veiwing the video file. However 1080 or even 720 is probably sufficient for my requierments as of now.

Again thank you so much for the rapid response.

Best regards

Joseph

Hi Hunk,

My name is Ray. I am very thankful for your help. I have read your recommendations and am thankful that you have offered your help for someone like me. I am in need of help in that I would like to know the fastest way to rip DVD’s as I have a plethora of DVD’s that I would like to have archived and would like to know the fastest way possible.However I am am new to this technology and might need some guidance on how to work through all of this. I imagine that the software you are recommending would make it simple for me to “rip” DVDs that I own. I am thinking that I still might need help to walk me through all of this. Hopefully you are still available for questions and answers after the fact.

Ray

I currently use DVD Fab both 11.5 and 9.4 rips fine but the time is about 1/2 hour per disk. I too am moving my entire 1000 dvds to MP4 on my NAS. I too would like to see this program in action – I tried other programs and promises and after paying the fees waste of both time and money. Could you send a temp license for me to try a couple DVDs —
