If you don’t want to worry about having your DVDs scratched, damaged or lost, you can back up their contents onto your computer or some portable device. In order to do this, you need a specialized application like #1 DVD Ripper.

#1 DVD Ripper is not only suitable for backup purposes, but it is also a great solution to convert the contents of your DVDs into formats compatible with various portable devices. It supports a large variety of conversion profiles, letting you rip and convert DVDs into formats compatible with devices such as iPhone, iPod, AppleTV, PSP, PS3, Xbox, Zune, Blackberry, and others. Each conversion profile can be thoroughly customized in terms of frame rate, aspect ratio, audio bit rate, and many other parameters.

Its interface is also very simple; granted, it's not resizable, but it doesn't matter. The important part is that this tool does its job. It can also rip protected DVDs, crop the video stream of video DVDs, and do many other things.

Ultimately, considering that its price is a bit high, I find it hard to recommend this program, especially since there are a lot of other DVD ripping alternatives on the market.
