    Keep in mind the discussion of ripping commercial DVDs is against forum rules.

    Yes, even if you own the DVDs. While the Fair Use Clause of the DMCA allows you to make backups of digital media that you own, there's another clause that makes breaking the CSS encryption of a DVD illegal. So while you can make a backup of the movie, you can't break the encryption to get to it. It's sort of a catch 22. Hopefully, the new administration will update the DMCA to resemble real world usage rather than what the movie studios want.
