Have had to uninstall this software because of the GridinSoft Anti-Malware always blocked the programme from running and warned me about an Adware containing within the programme. So, I could not have a chance to test the WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro.

Hi, I'm wondering if this can be used to transfer PC games that are on a 32-bit DVD onto a 64-bit DVD and be playable or installable from that DVD? I've got some games that I can't even open because they're on 32-bit DVDs & I have Windows 7, 64-bit.

Downloaded , Installed and Activated with no problems on my Win10x54 machine using Edge as my browser. (As an aside I can't believe the amount of people EVERY SINGLE DAY who seem to have problems doing this. At a minimum I would suggest a different A/V and reading the "readme" file.)

I've used WonderFox before and its a good decent piece of software. This is right on time for me since I reset my machine this morning and lost both of my WinXDvd rippers, Platinum and Pro. Those are very good pieces of software btw and I urge you to get copies of each or either when and if they become available here again. I will be buying the Platinum edition as soon as funds permit.

Back to WonderFox. I've used it before with no hassles, its fairly quick ........... about 30/45 minutes per DVD. The quality is fine and its simple and easy to use. I will be re-ripping a few DVD's later on, so if anything horrible happens I'll be back and update this review. But I don't expect that to happen because as I mentioned earlier I've used it before. This looks like a new U.I. to me, at least since the last time I had a copy and it looks well thought out and again, simple to use. WonderFox was my goto for a long time and may just recapture me after I use this edition a little longer. I rip all my DVD's to a TS folder to watch on my computer because I travel in my work and just don't have the space to carry around my DVD collection or even a fraction of it.

WonderFox = fast and easy to use with above average quality. If you need a ripper/copies you could do a lot worse.

Reply   |   Comment by Alan  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Alan, Its me again and I just remembered/saw why I use the WinX programs. First, The picture quality if this is very very good. Top notch. The ripping time is decent and I used the High quality setting. Sound and picture quality leave NOTHING to be desired. Very sharp and no fading of colors.

Now, for my beef. This is pretty much just for movies, which is not a bad thing in and of itself. I say "just for movies" because I just ripped a DVD of Red Dwarf series VII. Its a British T.V. show for those who don't know and very funny. Anyway, theres no option to clone the DVD so I ended up having to rip each episode individually, at least as a Ts file. Consequently, there's no menu either. This is unacceptable to me as I want the Rip to be as close as possible to the actual DVD. As I mentioned in my earlier review, I travel in my work so rip T.V. shows and movies for my computer for watching when I'm not home. The no menu and individual episode at a time is a deal breaker for me sadly. If all you want/need is a movie ripper this is an excellent choice, but if you want episodes/menus then you are out of luck, at least as far as Ts folders go. Excellent in every other way, speed, quality and ease of use though.

Downloaded and registered just fine. A fairly straight forward program and easy to use. I have WIN 7, 64 bit PC. I gave it a try and it worked ! I ripped a DVD to MP4 that was 12.3 GB, 260 minutes long. It took 101 minutes. I wanted to see how it would handle a very long movie. The output to the MP4 played great without any "protection" problems. I don't think it was "Blazing fast ripping speed", but the quality was excellent. When I exited the program, I had an offer to upgrade and improve the speed 50 times faster and discount for purchase. Is this Pro 9.7 or is it a lighter version? I don't know. I used the medium setting (quality vs. speed). Overall, it's worth keeping.

I've done a test and was not able to see an option to rip a video from a DVD and retain the item's Closed Captions. There is no "Subtitle" in the item's drop down selection, it is either "Disabled" or "Add Subtitle" where I am prompted to browse for an external file.

The text is there on the DVD as I am able to rip it with Handbrake and select the Closed Captions track in the job configuration. It has been my experience that many DVDs may not have a Subtitle track, but they may have a Closed Captions track that will do the job for the hearing impaired. It would help if I could rip them with WonderFox.

jimjim,

Nowadays video can be a mess for the hearing impaired, jimjim. Maybe this will help you?... You could just use WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro to get the DVD on your hard drive, then use Handbrake if you prefer -- when you do a copy [rather than rip or conversion] the CC & subs will be included in the folder with the rest of the DVD files. Or without using Handbrake...

When it's included, CC is embedded in the actual mpg2 files on a video DVD [same as most digital broadcast in the US]. That CC disappears however once you re-encode the file, so you have to extract it from the original, I'd suggest using CCextractor. You'd start with a copy of the DVD in a folder on your hard drive, so you have the original mpg2 with embedded CC. Next copy the mpg2 video from inside the DVD's VOB files to a separate mpg2 [usually .mpg] file [there are a few tools to do this], & drag & drop the mpg2 file you get into the CCextractor window [Note: Do Not run as admin or D&D may not work.]. This should give you an .srt file, which is what you want.

Now go ahead and do whatever you want with the video conversion. If that .srt file is named the same as the video file, & stored in the same folder, many software players, Android & PC, can display it as subtitles you'll be able to turn on/off. You can also use that .srt file when WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro [or similar ripper or converter] asks for an external file for subs -- usually I think they'll add permanent subs rather than being able to turn display on/off.

If your player connects via HDMI, CC generally won't work because HDMI won't pass it to the TV's CC decoder, so I've done a lot of this sort of thing over the years. If you need to use the DVD's subtitles rather than captioning, SubtitleEdit will OCR them into a .srt file. There are also apps that can turn .srt files into subs -- I've taken DVDs, gotten the .srt file, turned that .srt file into Blu-ray subs, then created & burned a Blu-ray disc, since the DVD video is already part of the Blu-ray spec. Video looks the same, but the subs are a Huge improvement on a HDTV. Check videohelp[.]com for software.

mike,

That is a five-star response if I have ever seen one! Thanks for all this information. These are great alternatives to follow when I run into trouble and I will be saving this for the future.

Yes, it is certainly challenging for the hearing impaired, but the good news is that more and more releases do at least have some form of subtitling for the content (if not available on the web). It's better to go through a few more steps and toolsets than not have them at all.

Thanks again!

I absolutely adore WonderFox Soft products! Purchased DVD Ripper Pro a while back (like a few years ago), so I really appreciate that they have returned to provide us with 9.7, that's really awesome.
Thank you for not drastically changing the interface too. I was a little hesitant on deciding whether or not to upgrade to this version, but after a quick YT search I was happy to see that's it's been kept simple and clean! Thank you WonderFox Soft and thank you GotD too.
GotD has been killin' it lately!

What format do I use to copy a DVD in 5 minutes? I've tried a couple of different formats and time has been anywhere from 35 minutes to 2 hours.

Reply   |   Comment by nick sheesan  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+6)

nick sheesan,

It takes however long to copy roughly 4-8 GB from a DVD optical disc, & that's the baseline minimum when you're just copying -- no conversion. And that time is determined by the optical drive, your target hard drive, the PC/laptop both are connected to etc. Copying that amount of data from any DVD disc, I've never seen it drop much below 15-20 minutes personally, regardless what type of files were involved.

So, the only way to copy a DVD in 5 minutes is if that DVD only contains somewhere around 1-2 GB. ;)

I've had good luck with WonderFox software. I purchased and FREQUENTLY use their "HD Video Converter Factory Pro." I also purchased their "DVD Video Converter" and have had no issues with it. I suspect this software would be of similar quality, but I have no need, since its functionality overlaps the "DVD Video Converter" package- which I don't need as often. (I convert/shrink videos more often than convert/RIP DVDs). The company has always been responsive to my questions and have, without question, updated my license twice in the past, as their licensing/registration methods evolved. I've never regretted my purchases.

I had high hopes for this as I have been struggling with ripping my sopranos dvds (I've used anydvd for years for my ripping needs) but having very limited success some rips taking literally days to complete for just 1 disc.
I installed Wonderfox's dvd ripper and registered it on my main desktop pc as it has the most power in my home, no issues there, running win 7 x64 ultimate.
popped in a problem sopranos disc (no scratches or other issues I bought these all new when they were first released) told wonderfox dvd ripper to make a 1:1 copy on my hard drive, its been going for approx 45 mins and is at around 40%.
I'm hoping it will actually finish but I have my doubts as to whether it will be successful or not, perhaps the folks at wonderfox can help me figure out what the trouble is and get it working properly?

Laura,

Something's wrong with your setup, Laura -- the times you're reporting are not close to normal. It could be a hardware problem, as in needing a new DVD drive, or it could be malware, as in you're PC or laptop is being used to mine bitcoins, or whatever...

If you're making a 1:1 copy of a DVD [or Blu-ray], how long it takes should be the time it takes to transfer that amount of data from a disc to your hard drive. Now some DVD drives do limit copy speeds as a method of DRM, but not to the extent you're reporting.

This is a fresh install of windows in a high end machine, although I have tried on other pc's as well. I am thinking it has something to do with the DRM on these particular dvds, although I have never come across anything like it unless the dvd itself is damaged( heavily scratched or the like) in the past 7 years of backing up my dvd collection.

I've got winXdvd from a previous giveaway, it works, but it takes a long time on these same dvds, but it does finish after about a day or so of letting it run, which is better than a fail altogether, as I said to Mike, I believe it is something to do with these particular dvds...maybe the Sopranos just don't want to be ripped and converted to be watched on the go

Laura,

You might want to try WinX DVD Copy Pro. Your DVDs may have Disney type protection - dozens of fake files with fake sizes that take a lot of analyzing. WinX can often do those although it takes time.

It's been a giveaway here though not right now of course.

My husband has paid £300 to a commercial firm to put several old 8mm home movies onto a DVD. Nothing wrong with the work they did, but he failed to tell them the sequence the material should be in. The DVD also has stuff that's too boring for words or of such poor original quality it would be better if it wasn't there.

So, what I want to do is somehow in some way convert this DVD to a Windows PC file that I can then have on screen and can take out the bits that needn't be there (and if I'm clever enough, perhaps move segments of the material around to put what's on the DVD into the right order.)

Today's give away looks to me as if it will be great for getting the content of the DVD onto my desktop computer, but otherwise I'm a bit lost. Does anyone know WHAT format I should ask the Ripper to rip to?? And does anyone know what software I should then use to edit the WonderFox conversion? Sorry for being a numptie.

Reply   |   Comment by Valerie  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Valerie, I'd convert to AVI or MPG and then use something (free) like http://www.videosoftdev.com/free-video-editor to edit your movies

Valerie,

"So, what I want to do is somehow in some way convert this DVD to a Windows PC file that I can then have on screen and can take out the bits that needn't be there (and if I'm clever enough, perhaps move segments of the material around to put what's on the DVD into the right order.)"

1st off, it's very unlikely that your DVDs have any DRM, so while you could certainly use WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro, you don't have to as a first step.

2nd, there are two ways that you can accomplish this, re-encoding the video & using it as-is. Re-encoding will reduce quality -- how much depends on the quality of the DVD video. The easiest way would be to convert the video to mpg2 files [Note: the DVD video's already mpg2, so you're not re-encoding, but just taking the existing video out of the DVD's VOB files], & then rearrange those clips & edit them however you want in video editing software. Then when you're done you'd encode the results into whatever format you choose using the same editing software.

Now the 2nd way... You'd still get the mpg2 video out of the DVD VOB files, but set the order of those files & optionally set what video plays in what order whilst creating your own video DVDs. The advantage is no re-encoding so no quality loss. The disadvantage is it'll take learning how to do all of that, but it is possible [I've done it] because DVDs play the video listed in play lists, so by editing the play lists you set the order of what plays when, and leave out the video that doesn't play at all. Check videohelp[.]com for software.

Valerie, This ripper allows you directly rip to the mpeg2 files so no loss plus it has an inbuilt edit function which allows you to select the bits you want (don't select the boring stuff). Then maybe you can use a free DVD burner program to make a new DVD out your separate rips. No loss all round.

"It supports 1080P Full HD Video Conversion as well as stable, flexible and super-fast online video downloading. Want to say goodbye to the times when you spend several hours to rip and convert your favorite DVDs? Here’s the way."

This is very misleading since 1080 is BLUERAY, not DVD!

Does this mean you can burn Blueray? If not it is false advertising

JEB, 1080 is not necessarily Blue Ray. My phone shoots 1080 and it's not Blue Ray.

JEB, since this is a DVD ripper then the software obviously isn't designed for your phones video. As far as dvd's go blu-ray is the only one that handles the 1080 resolution.

Joe Schmoe, Sorry, 1080 is not just Blu-ray. Go read up on it, you'll see, that 1080 is not just Blu-ray.

1080p is High Def (Blu-Ray) and DVD Video is Standard Def (typical 480p or 720x576).

A normal hardware DVD-recorder can not and will not record at 1080p.
The same goes for software. The DVD Video standard does not support 1080p.

If it does (or if it seems it does) it means it will internally downscale/convert the video to the lower Standard Def.

Even if you put a normal DVD disc into a Blue-Ray burner, the DVD will NOT record 1080p.
DVD Video is a format- and video quality standard.


But you can burn (read:store) a 1080p movie to a regular DVD DISC but NOT as a formatted DVD Video!!.
What you'll be doing is simply storing a digital file to a disc.

This is the same as when you put MP3's on a CD disc.
That too will NOT make it an Audio CD playable in normal standard CD-players.

What you're actually creating is a DATA disc in both cases, not a Video DVD formatted disc or Audio CD formatted disc.



tl;dr: Caroll, sorry to hear you've wasted 20 years of working with video......

JEB, good question, but I think what they say is that the program will support 1080p CONVERTING (downscaling) to the lower DVD-format and not "BURNING a 1080p DVD Video" (as that does not exist indeed).
So, it can READ 1080p and (automatically?) convert it down to DVD format (480p, 576p).

OscarWilde, I have over 670 videos online that are for the most part 1920 x1080. They can all be burned to a regular DVD, NON-Blu-Ray Disks at 1920x1080. I have a whole collection of DVDs that are not Blu-Ray and are 1920 x 1080. I have no idea where buddy is getting his information from.

JEB,

"It supports 1080P Full HD Video Conversion..."

No idea where you saw that -- perhaps on the page for another Wonderfox app? Using the browsers Find, the only place I see that is in your post.

Carroll, As I said before (and as you can read in every page on the net), those are NOT 'DVD Video Format', but simple DATA storages on whatever media (cd-disc, dvd-disc, blu-ray disc, hard disc, whatever-disc).

DVD Video format can not and never will support 1080p.
There is a different between the DVD MEDIA DISC and the DVD VIDEO FORMAT!

Again, putting MP3's on a CD DISC does not make it an Audio CD Formatted disc!

JEB,
I think most in here are mixing up things. This is a DVD RIPPER, that is - one put's a DVD disk into the reader and this software creates a digital copy of the DVD's content. It's so long I haven't used a DVD, but DVD's files are like VTS_01_1.VOB in folders inside the DVD like VIDEO_TS or something like that.
So, after inserting the DVD, the person chooses the output format offered by this program, and the digital file is created. If necessary, this aplication also upscales the image. It also removes copy protection and region codes.
If the specifications of the app don't inform it, you cannot copy or rip a Blu-ray disk, which is the present case.
But one can "copy" a DVD into a higher quality digital file, thru upscaling. The final quality of the copy is to be seen.

Carroll, but your phone is not a DVD! So this program has no ability to rip your phones 1080p mov or mp4 or m4v files as they are already said video files. DVD-Video is at most 480p for NTSC format and 576p for PAL format DVDs there is no formal 1080p DVD-Video format. There is a variant of the Blu-ray format squeezed onto a DVD but that is not a DVD-Video disc and normal DVD players will not recognise it or play it at any resolution.

OscarWilde, I think it's the other way, upscaling 480p or 576p DVD-Video up to 720p/1080p(FHD)/4K since its ripping from DVD-Video discs not burning them. ;)

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

mike, there is a sentence from a paragraph on the so called home page linked to that contains text that infers 720p/FHD/4K which includes 1080 obviously.

"I have preset optimized parameters for all pop devices such as DVD to iPad, DVD to iPhone, DVD to Android device, Samsung, Microsoft, Google Android, LG, Amazon, Moto, Sony, HUAWEI, Nokia, BlackBerry, HTC, Xbox, Projector(4K/FHD/720P) and many more."

It apears to be infering it supports resizing 480p or 576p to 720p/1080p/2160p though I'd recommend letting the playback device do the upscaling and saving intermediate storage space.

well JEB, I think my old Blu-ray player does a pretty good in upscaling old DVD's to be seen at my 4K big TV, at least for my sore eyes! Nothing that compares to real blu-ray content, but "seems" better than regular 480p.

terrawarra,

"Will this freebie beat any copyright restrictions ?"

Hopefully... With any decryption software, when new protections appear, there *may* be a lag time before it's figured out, & it *may* require a new version. Also, the ad copy on the site for WonderFox DVD Ripper Pro lists Cinavia removal -- that's extremely unlikely, & probably an error.

"And will it shrink to fit on a 4.7 disc ?"

That was only a concern in the early 2000s, before you could buy inexpensive dual layer DVD blanks. Buy & use them when necessary.

That said, often a DVD will fit on a single layer disc if you remove everything but the main video, & also remove audio & sub tracks you don't want or need. When that doesn't work, DVD Shrink &/or earlier versions of Nero Recode [same author] can work if a percentage in the 90s is maintained -- anything over that & it will be re-encoded. The video quality of current DVDs is reduced intentionally so that re-encoding causes very noticeable quality loss. You'll find software tools at videohelp[.]com .
