    Very straight forward and simple user interface.


    Everything else.


    This product is a waste of your time. It claims to do it all, but actually does very little. The only thing this program actually does is break the DVD's encryption and copy it to your hard drive in the basic uncompressed file format. All 8 GBs of it! There are multiple FREE software programs that will do that same thing if that's what you want. Don't waste your money! However, in my opinion, this approach is just a waste of your time and hard drive space because the dvd won't be recognized by ITunes and cannot be played on your ipod/iphone/ipad. If that's what you want, I highly recommend MacX DVD Ripper Pro. This is the program that I personally use to copy my old DVDs (before they had digital copies) on my hard drive in a MP4 format (1.5 GBs) that is compatible with ITunes and can be synced with any apple product. It costs $30, but it will do all of the following steps with a couple clicks of a button: 1.Break DVD Encryption 2. Identify Main Movie File 3. Copy to your Hard Drive and 4. Compress into a MP4 format. All in about an hour (One of the fastest I've found out there and absolutely no problems copying any DVDs) All you have to do is change the file extension to .M4V and move it into your Itunes folder.

    There are two programs, "MacX DVD Ripper Pro," which you like, and the current product you're reviewing "Mac DVDRipper Pro," which you hate? Their names differ by an "X" and a space between "DVD" and "Ripper"??
