I was introduced to RIP4ME in 2007 and it is still working for me in 2021. My initial use started with Wins XP and have continued use of it into Wins 7 and 10. The combination of RIP4ME, DvdDecrypter, Fixvts, DvdShrink and ImgBurn have worked consistently for me. I used the Wizard Mode, when I first installed it for use and it is pretty cool and not difficult to use. However, I found that the "One Click Mode" has worked just fine for me, 99 percent of the time. It still is an effective software for archiving my home videos as well as my[owned] family features and animated features that my granddaughter likes to watch frequently. Anytime I have get a new desktop or laptop, RIP4ME is one of the first items installed. Always. Even when it was no longer supported, it has been effective, for the major part, from then to 2021. I had a few, including a western, that were problematical. Curious thing. I tried RIP4ME on those same one's later, and was able to backup and archive them. Go figure, since RIP4ME is no longer updated. Since the costs of hdds, have come down, I back up and save the uncompressed files to external hdds. I have the option, from there, to use ImgBurn to burn the .iso file to a dvd or playback the uncompressed files with a video player such as VLC or Kodi Media Player. My discs of choice to burn .iso files is Verbatim +R/+RW. Since I am in no great rush, I set my burn speed of 4x, an idea I got from "old hands" and experienced folks who had written, at different forums like this one, that it was recommended speed for the best and most consistent burns. That advice has served me well, since 2007, and I've had very few coasters. Note: Early on I noticed that I might a coaster using a Write Only(+R or -R). For whatever reason, I was able to successfully back up the same program using a Rewrittalble (+ or - RW)disc. I don't know if it was the disc(or a bad batch of discs or) or if the writer/the laser was not "burning" the image to the disc as it should. The upside to a bad burn on an RW was that if the disc was not corrupted, I could reformat it in my stand alone, dvd recorder and record t.v. programming or transfer home videos to the dvd and rip it to my pc later if I wanted to. I thought I might give a slightly different perspective on the how the use RIP4ME and the supporting software has been a benefit to me.
