DVD Ripping Apps

Being able to transfer the data from your physical video discs to the hard drive of your choice can help ensure that the data on that disc is preserved and can be read by anyone that has received said data via file sharing or any other means. Software such as Freemake Video Converter and Format Factory can help ensure that data from DVDs (such as personal events or your favorite movies) has been stored safely on the digital storage medium of your choice.
