You might want to back up your DVDs in case  they are damaged and also because they are becoming obsolete. You can make an intact duplicate of your DVD discs and also can convert DVD to digital files so that you can store the DVD videos in iTunes for streaming on Apple TV, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. No matter you want to backup DVDs or convert DVDs, DVDFab HD Decrypter can help you complete the tasks all.

DVDFab HD Decrypter Review

DVDFab HD Decrypyer is a simple version of DVDFab "DVD to DVD" and DVDFab "Blu-ray to Blu-ray". It copies entire DVD/Blu-ray movie to hard drive, and removes all the DVD protections (CSS, RC, RCE, APS, UOPs and Sony ARccOS) and part of Blu-ray protections while copying. Videos from DVD/Blu-ray discs can be converted to AVI, WMV, MP4, 3GP, MKV and many others. When not familiar with DVDFab, its complexity can intimidate beginner users, but it only takes you a few minutes to get used to this utility. The buttons are named and the interface is airy and orderly for optimal user experience.

NOTE! The decryption, DVD to HDD and Blu-ray to HDD, is FREE, if you want more features then it's a trialware. And it may take 1-6 months until it supports NEW DVD/Blu-ray releases. And click on TRY even if it says that the trial has expired.
