DVD ripping software is readily available online, and there are a number of different programs that you can use. For this guide, we’ll be using the popular program HandBrake.
Once you’ve downloaded and installed HandBrake, follow the steps below to start ripped music from your DVDs:
1. Insert the DVD that you want to rip into your computer’s DVD drive.
2. Launch HandBrake and click on the “Source” button at the top of the window. Then select “DVD Folder” from the menu that appears.
3. Find the DVD drive that contains your DVD in the left sidebar and click on it. Then select the main video file on the disc (this is usually located in the VIDEO_TS folder).
4. Click on the “Audio & Subtitles” tab and make sure that all of the audio tracks that you want to rip are checked off. You can also choose to include subtitles if you want, but this is optional.
5. Finally, click on the “Start Encode” button at the bottom of HandBrake’s window to start ripping music from your DVD!
Step One: Download and Install HandBrake
Assuming you have a CD or DVD from which you want to rip music, the first step is to download and install [HandBrake](https://handbrake.fr/). It’s a free, open source, multiplatform program that will do the job admirably.
Step Two: Launch HandBrake and Select Your DVD
Now that you’ve got your hands on the necessary software, it’s time to start ripping. Open up HandBrake and click the Source button in the upper-left corner of the window. From here, select your DVD drive from the menu that appears. If you don’t see your DVD drive listed, make sure that a disc is inserted into the tray.
Step Three: Choose Your Output Settings
Now that you have the software installed and your DVD inserted, it’s time to choose your output settings. To do this:
1. Open HandBrake
2. Click “Source” in the upper left-hand corner of the screen and select “DVD Drive” from the drop-down menu
3. Click “Browse” in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and choose a location to save your ripped file
4. Select your preferred output format from the “Format” drop-down menu – we recommend MP4 for compatibility with most devices
5. Choose your preferred quality settings from the “Quality” drop-down menu – we recommend using the “Constant Quality” slider and setting it to around 70% for best results
Step Four: Start the Conversion
Now that you have everything set up, you’re ready to start the conversion process. Go to the “File” menu and select “convert.” A new window will pop up asking you to select the file format you want to convert your files to. For audio files, the most common format is MP3, but you can also choose AAC (m4a), WAV, or FLAC. Once you’ve selected your file format, click “OK.”
Next, you’ll need to select the location where you want to save your file. Make sure to create a new folder for all of your ripped music files so they don’t get lost in the shuffle. Once you’ve selected a location, click “OK” again and the conversion process will begin! Depending on how many files you’re converting and their size, this may take a few minutes or longer.
Step Five: Wait for the Conversion to Complete
Once you have followed the instructions in steps one through four, all you have to do is wait for the conversion to complete. This should only take a few minutes, and then you will have a new file on your computer that contains all of the music from the DVD.
Once you have ripped your music from your DVDs, you can enjoy them on your computer, mobile device, or other MP3 player. You can also use them as background music for video projects, or even mix them into your own DJ sets! Ripping music from DVDs is a great way to build up a digital music collection, and it’s easy to do with the right tools and a little bit of know-how. Thanks for reading!
