Ok, I'm gonna sound like a newbie here.

What's the best DVD rip software? [free!]

I'm trying to rip a dvd, Thin Lizzy live in Sydney, and Handbrake will NOT rip it for some reason.

Well, it will, but all the video's are corrupted. The DVD disk will play fine in WMP and WMP Classic Home Cinema, but not handbrake.

I'm really confused!

For all things CD/DVD/BD related, http://club.myce.com/ used to be a place where folks focused on critiquing and ranking multi-media hardware, media, and software. I just looked as it's been awhile since I checked it out, and they still list fora that look like they'd help with just about anything multi-media related...although it looks like they've also spread-out to cover more stuff...so please don't hold me to it. Things change.

Used to be lots of advice there from people much more experienced in multi-media.

Its literally just decent DVD ripping software I need. For multi-media related stuff, CreativeCow is my forum o choice (full of A/V pro's and After Effects / premiere etc professionals help with stuff).

I just need to rip the damn dvd! lol

A quick look on that site and DVD Fab seems to be the software of choice. Thanks for that John, I'll give it a whirl later :)

As mentioned, they critique and rank all kinds of multi-media software and you did ask for info on "the best".

I checked again and there has been recent activity in various fora so it looks like their info would be up-to-date.

wouldnt something like DVDShrink work for ya to get the contents from the dvd over onto your hdd? Then from there you can do whatever you wanted to with it.

DVD Shrink is great for making a non-DRM copy of a disc. Even if it's a dual-layer disc, DVD Shrink will re-encode it, making it suitable for a standard DVD.

I usually just rip DVDs to ISOs, which you can do with something like ImgBurn.

If the DVD is DRM'ed, you can unlock it with AnyDVD or DVD43.

Wow don't know how could I miss this thread. But I'm sort of an expert in all things dvdripping. so if you have any more doubts Dubs, don't hesitate to send me a PM.

The best for ripping DVDs with CSS encryption is:
AnyDVD which I got way way back when it was new and costed like $25, now you have to pay a hefty price but there is nothing you can't rip.

OR!

Use DVDFabHD Decrypter which is also a great ripper and it's free!

If you want to shrink a dvd to fit in a single layer blank dvd (4.7gb) then send me a PM and I'll tell you what you need.
