What's the Best DVD Ripper Software (for legal use)

I have these old home movies on DVD and I want to load them on my computer. I have iSkysoft iMedia Converter and it will only upload the 1st Chapter of the disc.

Do you know what the best software there is to load *all* chapters to my computer?

Thank you.

If the home movies are on DVD you can simply copy the files from the DVD to your computer since they're not copy protected. They will play fine from there.

You can just drag the Video_TS folder from the disc to your hard drive but if you want to download each section of the Home Videos as it's own folder you can do that with DVD Shrink using the Re-author option.

As an example I recorded some of my kids school shows on a hand held video camera and then converted everything to DVD with chapter points at the start of each show. If I wanted to put the shows back on my computer but with each show being a different Video_TS folder I would use the Re-author mode to make each show it's own folder. That way when we want to watch a certain show or put a certain show on our Iphone, Ipods, or Ipads we don't have to put the whole DVD on the device.
