Rip the files from a selected DVD by scanning it and accessing all the files organized in native structures. Conversion of extracted data into videos compatible with iPhone, Apple TV, PSP, BlackBerry, iPad is possible by saving them in AVI, MP4, FLV, 3GP, WAV, or MP3.

Free DVD Ripper Platinum is a handy tool that allows you to rip and convert the contents of multimedia DVDs to local files of various formats. It helps you play the content from multimedia DVDs on portable devices that support only specific types of files. Furthermore, it helps you protect the contents of those DVD by copying and backing them up to your computer. As you can see, Free DVD Ripper Platinum is really handy in plenty of cases.

Free DVD Ripper Platinum would have been my favorite DVD ripper if it weren't for its installer and the numerous offers to make me install additional, unneeded apps, including an attempt to trick me into allowing the iStartSurf malware onto my system. Installing this tool while also keeping my system clean felt like walking on a tightrope. That's too bad, cause otherwise this tool is pretty nice. It comes with a neat, easy-to-use interface that even complete beginners can use without any problem, and it offers a lot of cool and handy additional features and functions. For example, it can even rip from HD DVD/Blu-Ray Movie with lossless output and it can extract only the soundtrack from the aforementioned media types and save it to audio files.

It can also save you a lot of time as it offers fast processing speed and it comes with handy output presets that let you save the ripped media to files that are fully compatible with devices such as iPhone, PSP, or smartphones.

To sum it all up, Free DVD Ripper Platinum is a nice tool by itself, but installing it requires quite a lot of attention if you care about what else you allow onto your system.
