Easily back up your DVDs
Your guide Matt Hanson says… “Windows 10 doesn’t come with DVD backup software, but WinX DVD Ripper Free Edition is a great substitute”
There are many reasons why you’d want to convert your physical DVDs into digital files (a process known as ‘ripping').
Firstly, you can save space at home by putting those DVDs away in your garage or attic, as you can watch the digital files instead. You’ll also be able to find what you’re looking for more easily by searching for it on your PC rather than through DVD cases.
Another benefit is that since DVDs can get easily scratched or damaged, you will have a backup of any irreplaceable ones in your collection in case the worst should happen.
Finally, converting your DVDs to digital files enables you to play them on devices that don’t have DVD drives – smartphones, tablets and the growing number of laptops that don’t have DVD drives either.
WinX DVD Ripper Free Edition is an easy-to-use tool that will help you convert your DVDs in no time.
Matt’s best tip! It ’s illegal to rip commercially available DVDs, which may contain copyrighted material such as movies and TV shows.
