It’s pretty simple really, all you need is a copy of handbrake and your dvd.  It’s a lot simpler then it was in the past.  Now remember we are trying to get a movie that you own on to your hard drive.  This may be illegal in your country, and you could be breaking the DMCA, but in my opinion… they can go to hell. Here is the steps to getting your dvd’s backup to your computer.Now, this will put all of the video chapters into one full length video.  If you want to make a complete duplicate copy of your movies this is not the best way to go about it.  I do this with my films to put them on a hard drive that I can plug into my dvd player via usb, and watch my movies without having to pull out my disk. All my dvds a then put into storage.  Here’s a step by step:
