Hi,
I am travelling shortly and want to take some of my boxset tv series on my tablet. This requires ripping the individual episodes off the dvds. I have done this before using Handbrake but its time consuming and requires manual application.
Can anyone suggest a good onestep software that will do this all for me? Im happy to pay for it if its reliable, simple, and will ripp all episodes from a dvd into good quality individual programes in say, .avi, mp4, mkv etc.
Any suggestions please as to a good reliablecprogramme.
Cheers...

There are several programs which can do this, off the top of my head, DVDFab is one of them.

The venerable DVD Shrink can do the ripping and handbrake or similar to covert to another format, but as the OP mentions this is a manual and time consuming method.
Handbrake can rip DVD's in linux but not windows in my experience, hence DVD shrink.

DVD Fab is pretty good, and although it's not cheap you can just buy the individual module for DVD ripping if you want.
And to be my usual annoying self I'll point out ripping DVD's is not legal in NZ, no matter if you own them or not. It took forever for them to let us legally convert our own music, as far as I know they never included Video in the format shifting Laws. I could be wrong.

All you do is from the source button/ Option select the DVD. ( this should be obvious, but you have to have the DVD in the drive other wise it wont show the Drive)

I may have to download the latest version and try it. Are you certain it works even with protected DVD's? It's a feature they had way back and then abandoned due to licensing issues. Maybe it's back and I never noticed.
I think maybe it always worked for unprotected disks.

edit from handbrakes website

Supported Input Sources:
Handbrake can process most common multimedia files and any DVD or BluRay sources that do not contain any kind of copy protection

So I guess if you use an on the fly copy protection remover it could work but otherwise no.

It doesn't work on protected DVD's.

Thats not what was stated, it was stated:
Handbrake can rip DVD's in linux but not windows Nothing was said about protection. You didn't say what you meant. To many people these days only give half statements or information.

So the answer given was correct , it will rip DVD's. ;)

I personally use DVD Decrypter and rip to ISO images. I don't like re-compressing and losing quality.

Yeah ok, I guess to me when talking about ripping DVD's the need to work on protected DVD's is implied so I didn't think to specify. In any case I believe linux still has this functionality if you have the relative library or dependency or something installed. I guess that's not much different to using something like anyDVD in conjunction with the windows version.

what I MEANT was handbrake under windows by default cannot rip protected DVD's unless you use other software to deal with the protection.

On a related note if you use something like anyDVD or DVDgenie to strip the protection then NERO recode is another good program to try, basically they bought DVD shrink, removed it's ability to rip protected DVD's, and continued development from there. The Upshot is recode is faster and has better quality and/ or compression than DVD shrink and is very similar to use but can't deal with protected DVDs

I thought to rip a protected DVD using handbrake, you just needed vlc installed for the decryption key. Works that way on the mac can't see handbrake making it different for windows.

From what I've read you can rip with VLC as well on its own http://www.wikihow.com/Rip-a-DVD-Using-VLC-Media-Player

Well blow me over. Not as clean as handbrake, but another alternative.
