Highly recommended. Excellent GUI and I haven't found a DVD in my collection yet that could not be ripped.

Works every time. I do not rip that many DVDs but when I do, this one never fails.
I do have the impression Handbrake is much faster but HB doesn't always rips the DVD perfect (audio syncs artifacts).

Previously using Handbrake, now using MDRP.
It is way faster and always works with protected DVDs.

Great value

I have owned them all and used them all. This is the best! Use this alone and with Handbrake, depending on your need.

Could anyone explain the difference between Handbrake and Mac DVDRipper Pro? Both can rip protected DVDs.

MDRP does it better and faster. It has an extremely useful preview function so you can select the title to be ripped. This is useful when ripping certain disks with what I think are called false sectors. I'm sure you've seen them. Basically, a bunch of fake or misleading chapters that will trick lesser programs into attempting to rip 80GB+. You can rip the correct title using DVD Player and Handbrake, but it's much easier to do in MDRP.

This is the only OS X app I have found that will RIP a protected DVD to ISO image. Some will do this for non-protected DVD's. Many will RIP a protected DVD to a MPEG or MKV file of one sort or another. Strangely, there are free apps on the Windows side that claim to RIP to ISO and I have Parallels. However, if something is free in Windows, then there is always a "catch" and it is usually unpleasant and often a messy surprise. Finally, make sure to avoid similarly named OS X apps, particularly those with "MacX" at the front. Those seem to be complete rip-offs of MDRP; I am an experienced user and buyer and was taken in by that vendor.

Just tried this and it is slick. Simple interface and, as many here have commented, it just works. Seems fast too. A wonderfully written and executed piece of software. Worth every penny.

Just the best out there! Tried MANY others and this is the easiest.. Many others have you jump through hoops to get what you want. If you want to just rip it works. If you want to burn a copy, it does it as well. Worth the money. and they keep updating on a regular basis.

I agree. This program is great. It does what it says with little effort. I used Mac The Ripper as my primary back up App but not it is MDRP that I go to. Great App.

Sparrowhawk had trouble on 24 Jul 2012
Is anyone else seeing the following: downloading the 3.3.1 zip and installing the app reverted my copy of MDVDRP from 3.3.0 to 1.6.4. Same thing if downloading directly off the developer's website?

Luckily I still have my 1.x password so I entered that, allowed it to download 3.3.1 itself and then entered my 3.3.1 password.

Possibly just a glitch my end, but I'm not sure how :)

My ripper of choice until recently. Lately many ISO rips turn out unplayable junk. I actually see what looks like encrypted data in the preview as it's attempting the rip.

Vendini had trouble on 09 Aug 2011
Since i'm using an external LG player, I'm encountering a strange issue when i try to copy the whole disk image on an iso.file.
After creating the iso.file, I'm unable to open it. I receive the following message : no mountable file system", so it seems the .iso file is corrupt.
However, if I choose the " all the videos, menus and bonus" option, everything goes fine.
This happens both on Lion or on Snow Leopard.
I must add that I have a SSD mounted in the place of the Superdrive on a 27" iMac i7.
Any ideas would be welcome...

The developer needs a way for submit titles that don't work. There is no way that I can find to submit problem disks that go through but won't play. I can find no info on their website either. Please add this!!!

Same here with a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-112D, in a Mirrored Drive Doors Power Mac G4 Dual Processor--"Fatal Error" when DVDRipper tries to do its initial look at any DVD. I suspect this is an issue between DVDRipper, and the ATA bus in PPC Macs--I suspect DVDRipper would work fine with this drive if I were to remove it and place it into a Firewire drive enclosure.

Something odd here.... Apparently the Closed-Captions are eliminated from the rip...
At least they are not present in the ripped .iso, and I've checked it with two dvds.

Anyone else have this problem?

Also a request: next version add a Feedback menu item, and a way to visit the website for support please!

This software is NOT to make the original DVD smaller to fit on one disk. This just puts the file on your computer with no protection so it can be used.

You need to use the free handbrake program to convert to a smaller size or a commercial program to make it fit on one disk.

MDRP creates a hidden ".dvdcss" folder in a user's home directory. This folder contains a record of every DVD that MDRP has ripped. It would be nice if MDRP removed entries from this folder at the conclusion of each rip, or cleaned this folder out on quit.

@DRDUL: Mac the Ripper also leaves this folder behind with all the DVDs that you ripped. Are you sure it is not from Mac The Ripper? I have not used this software, but am very familiar with the .dvdcss hidden folder...

Marc-Marshall replied on 11 Feb 2011
At least with v2, that folder doesn't appear to contain many, if any, of the things that MDRP rips; it appears to be left over from MacTheRipper. (Although oddly, a single disc out of a hundred that I ripped with MDRP seemed to have an entry there.)

That said, since MDRP has an option to warn you if you're re-ripping a disc you've already done, it seems like it must store a list somewhere. The cache.db file in your Library, maybe?
