"Is it possible to copy and save DVD videos to my computer's hard drive, so I can play them without having to bring DVD discs with me? You know it is not convenient to take DVD discs everywhere you go and I am afraid of damaging them accidently. - Bob

"How do I add the DVD to my computer hard drive to be able to burn copies of the disc?" "How can I copy a DVD to my computer so it can be played as a video file?" "How do I get copy movie from DVD to computer so I can watch it at any time?" Most of people may come across these problems when it comes to DVD Copying. But there is no need to fret. With some tricks, you can easily save DVD to computer. (Of course, this is only for personal use.)

Since DVD is usually protected with CSS (Content Scramble System) and region code, you can't just copy the DVD movies to computer without bypassing the protection. So we need to bypass the protection first. To bypass the DVD protection, a DVD to Computer Converter is necessary. And Aimersoft DVD Ripper is an ideal tool to accomplish this task. It can not only bypass the protection from DVD, but also convert DVD to the format you need on computer like MP4, MOV, WMV, AVI, MPEG, MKV, FLV, MP3, WMA, AAC, AC3, M4A, etc. Plus, with NVIDIA? CUDATM technology, it brings 5X faster conversion speed than other DVD to Computer Converters.

Here comes to choosing the output video format by clicking the "Profile" column. In the pop-up list, you need to choose one of the video formats as the output format. I recommend you MP4, because it is the most widely used video format, and also a nice format helping to copy a DVD to computer.
