How to legally back up your DVDs:


1.    Download Handbreak (Mac / Lin / Win)

2.    Download VLC (Handbrake requires this for decryption on the Mac)

3.    Handbrake can now rip Directly from the DVD to a video file


Backing up Blu-Ray/HD-DVD Legally (Windows Only):


1.    Download Handbrake

2.    Download AnyDVD HD (not free) or DVD FAB Passkey (free, not as current?)

3.    Use AnyDVD HD or DVD Fab Passkey to rip the disc to your hard drive, then use Handbrake to encode a file.

a.    Blu-Ray discs prove to be a bit more of a challenge than DVDs, not just their encryption, but also large size. Check out this writeup on Gizmodo for more info!
