I can't find how to make Handbrake just rip DVD's and not encode them.

I used to use Mac The Ripper before Snow Cat, but I heard that handbrake can also rip.

How can I rip a bunch of DVD's to my hard drive so I can Que them latter for converting?

Do you have ver 0.9.3?

Does this help you along?

No, unfortunately. It doesn't tell you how to just rip the image to hard drive.

I want to rip the image only and not convert, as I'll que lot's of rips for overnight converting.

Maybe you should be using MacTheRipper then?

Doesn't work with Snow cat, unless I install rosetta and don't want to do that.

Have a gander at this thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=676599) for possible clues.

Free & very easy GUI way to do it: (haven't tried this in Snow Leopard, please let us know if it works).

Download DVDRemaster from Metakine - DVDRemaster (http://www.metakine.com/products/dvdremaster/) (follow the Download link).
There's a free app called "Fairmount" included with DVDRemaster ... copy it into your Applications folder.
Stick in your DVD then open up Fairmount. Fairmount will take about 20 seconds to remount your DVD so that all other apps can read it's video content as decrypted.
Use the Finder to copy the VIDEO_TS folder from the DVD onto a hard disk.
Eject the disk in the normal way when you're done.


Hopefully that answers your question. No need to read any further unless you love using the Terminal.

This is how I would rip DVDs using the command line:

DIR=/rips ; DEV=/dev/disk1 ; while wait4path "$DEV" ; do diskutil unmount "$DEV" && dvdbackup -Mi "$DEV" -o "$DIR" && echo Success ; diskutil eject "$DEV" ; done

That waits for you to insert a DVD, rips the entire DVD to the /rips folder and then waits again for a new DVD. Hit ctrl-c to stop.

However, you'd have to first run this script to install the utility dvdbackup (and you'd need to have Developer Tools installed):


#!/bin/sh
sudo -v &&
mkdir -p dvdbackup &&
cd dvdbackup &&
curl -O "http://downloads.sourceforge.net/dvdbackup/dvdbackup-0.4.1.tar.gz" &&
curl -O "http://download.videolan.org/pub/libdvdcss/1.2.9/libdvdcss-1.2.9.tar.gz" &&
curl -O "http://www.dtek.chalmers.se/~dvd/dist/libdvdread-0.9.7.tar.gz" &&
for TGZ in *.tgz *.tar.gz ; do test ! -f "$TGZ" || tar -zxf "$TGZ" ; done &&
cd libdvdcss-* && ./configure && make && sudo make install && cd .. &&
cd libdvdread-* && ./configure --with-libdvdcss && make && sudo make install && cd .. &&
cd dvdbackup-* && ./configure && make && sudo make install && cd .. &&
/usr/local/bin/dvdbackup -h
cd ..


The great thing with utility is that you can remotely login (SSH) to a mac and run it, even if no one is logged into that mac (still displaying login window).

Just thought I would add to this - Handbrake is for converting to other formats - mpeg, avi, etc - not for plain "copying" of a DVD image

and remember kids, it IS legal in Australia to format shift digital media you own, not copy, but change from one format, ie CD/DVD to another ie mp3/m4v

What's wrong with running rosetta on SL? I use mac the ripper and had to install rosetta. I haven't noticed any differences.

Yep, your best and easiest bet would just to install rosetta and continue using MacTheRipper.

Yeah, I installed Rosetta and use Mac the Ripper. Don't see why you wouldn't, there are still a few PPC apps that I use fairly regularly.

No, it's not. Please read the document you linked. Especially the bit where it says "Copying a video or DVD requires permission unless a special exception applies" and then goes on to detail these exceptions.

While format shifting is permitted for music CDs, it isn't for movie DVDs.

Cheers
Steffen.
