My husband and I share a lot in common, but one of the things that surprised and delighted me was when I found out he had a collection of Disney movies on VHS and DVD. Fridays are movie nights in our home and I love the ability to pull out Toy Story, Peter Pan, or another favorite for my kids on a whim. Now I had an opportunity to get a sneak peek at the latest Disney films and TV series being released on DVD, so I like to watching these new Disney DVD Movies on Windows 8.1/8 with my husband.
At first, I'm aware of the fact that there may be a DVD drive built into the side of my new or upgraded Windows 8.1/8 machine – but when you pop a DVD into that drive, you might only get a whirring sound for about 45 seconds. Becides, DVD discs are easily to be scratched, lost or damaged. If I want to freely enjoy watching Disney DVD movies on other devices like phones, etc, it is a good idea to rip Disney DVD on my Windows 8.1/8. Some of you may like to try some freeware to do this job but you will get disappointed without doubt. Why?
First, Disney DVDs are copy-protected and the protection applied on these DVDs are even harder decrypt than the general commercial DVDs and the more recent released DVDs are, the more advanced protection they will adopt.Second, the freeware like Handbrake and Freemake Video Converter can only deal with the non-protected DVDs and DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink and DVD Knife, although can decrypt protected DVDs, but they upgrade very slowly and can do nothing about the latest released DVDs. Also even some paid DVD ripping programs can’t successfully finish this task.
When reading these, you might get terrified to do the Disney DVD copying work. Well, you don’t have to be like this, as long as you own a more professional DVD ripper.

1. Now we got the disc loaded into DVD to Windows8.1/8 Ripper and it's ready to go.
You can load DVD Discs, DVD folders, ISO files or IFO files respectively. As you can see, added files can be previewed on the right viewing window and you can take snapshots of the movie scenes you like freely.
2. Choose your Output directory down.
For your reference:
For DVD backup, you are suggested to choose "Copy > Directly Copy"as output format, because there is no re-encoding process, the conversion speed will be super fast and the output video is of lossless quality.
For DVD playback on other portable devices, you should choose the presets on it if have one. But if no preset is included for your certain device, you can hit General Video to choose a format supported by your device and then convert for playback. MP4 encoded by H.264 is always recommended.
3. Click "Settings". you will find presets to which suits your devices. Plenty of presets that can be customized as necessary.
Now just press the big circular "Start Conversion" button to the right and let it do its magic. You will not need to keep an eye on it as it can help you to shut down computer automatically.
So there you have it. Pretty simple. Go ahead and rip DVD to Windows 8.1/8 and enjoy...as you should have been able anyway. No loss in quality, audio is fantastic, ease of use as well as quite quick, it's really worthy to give a shot.
Did a lot of research before zeroing in on Pavtube. This is an all in one package. There are other rippers but some were slow, some ripped only non-protected media, some ripped in specific formats, but after giving pavtube a try, it had all the qualities I needed. Speed, conversion formats from various media and also from protected media.
