RipIt4Me - backup your DVDs

review from Blupwrdup, Feb 2007, permalink _ DVD Utilities


From Blu:

Hiya Clif,


RipIt4Me Version 1.6.7


This program is a freeware utility that helps you backup your copy protected DVDs.


How the program works:


RipIt4Me uses DVD Decrypter as a ripping engine and FixVTS to clean the ripped files.


It shouldn't take you much more time for you to use this method than if you had used DVD Decrypter on its own.


In short:

1. Start RipIt4Me.

2. Insert your original DVD that you wish to backup in your DVD reader/burner.

3. The DVD will then be ripped to your hard disk.

4. After the rip, RipIt4Me will clean up the DVD and, if necessary, remove the bad cells from the VOB files, remove any fake titlesets and fix the pointers by running FixVTS.

5. Once this is done, you may choose to have RipIt4Me make your DVD start at the first valid menu.

6. Finally, RipIt4Me will open the ripped files in DVD Shrink for you.




These programs need to be installed on your computer:


All programs that need to be installed are freeware.


* DVD Decrypter version


If you don't have the final version of DVD Decrypter installed - download and install it first. You can download it here. http://www.riphelp.com/downloads/dvddec.html*


* DVD Shrink version 3.2


Optional installation. Used to verify the final result of the ripping and cleaning phases. You can download DVD Shrink here. http://www.dvdr-digest.com/software/dvdshrink.html


* FixVTS version


FixVTS is used in the cleaning phase. With the help of this program, you can clean the mess created by the ARccOS or RipGuard protection. If you don't do this cleaning, you could end up with an error when you try to open the files in DVD Shrink.


If you don't have this program installed, you can download it from the FixVTS homepage. The latest version is http://download.videohelp.com/FixVTS/


The first time RipIt4Me runs, it will ask you to locate FixVTS.exe. RipIt4Me will remember that location from then on. (It is suggested that you install it into C:\Program Files\RipIt4Me which is the default folder)


Great utility for copying and preserving your DVD's. Worked flawlessly as advertised. Easy to use. Unlike other rippers the wizard and 1 click mode will help create perfect backup copies. Highly recommend this program for beginners. Please note : These programs are not intended to be used in any illegal endeavors.

Quote from the website

Recently released DVDs are now very often equipped with stronger copy protections - such as ARccOS™ and RipGuard DVD - that programs like DVD Shrink or DVD Decrypter have problems handling.


With the help of RipIt4Me, ripping these DVDs will be a very easy task. The program is fully automated and the wizard will guide you through all the necessary steps involved. If you prefer, there is also a true "1-Click" mode that will perform all the involved steps automatically for you.


Note from Clif:

According to the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act 1998) it is illegal for US residents to break copy protection on any digital media. Using the software below to make copies of protected DVDs could be considered a violation of the DMCA.
