One was definitely a Disney DVD. It wouldn't rip until after I installed AnyDVD. The other one was something weird- Blades of Glory, I think. (Caveat before the judgement continues: Blades of Glory was in a party prize basket and was still in its original plastic packaging. )

It might have been DVD43, I've got mine running on an old laptop where the wireless died. It now sits on a side table with nothing on it but Windows Vista (Yeah, I know, but I hate it too), Handbrake, DVD43 and Avast antivirus. When throw in a movie to rip I then use a 8GB thumb drive to transfer it over to the PC I have set up as my itunes master (technically my entire itunes library is stored on a 4TB drive handing off my router and a couple of PCs share the library) and add it to itunes. I then IMDB the movie, get the artwork and update it in itunes. That's about all I usually need to worry about before transferring to the iPad. It would be nice to fill in the Metadata, but I just don't bother. As long as the artwork and movie name are correct I can find it to play it.

Just FYI. I have a laptop I pieced together from 3 broken ones, we call it frankenputer and it lives in the popup now with some music and movies copied to it just in case. Our phones are still on a grandfathered unlimited data plan so if there is cell service we can just netflix or whatever on a rainy day.
That's the approach I did with DVD43. Handbrake doesn't ship the .dll (to ensure legality in all countries) but it's obtainable from DVD43. By default it runs like E-Dad described for AnyDVD, but with this I was able to shut down a background process and just let Handbrake load the .dll on demand.

I think it is a Roko or something similar with a laptop solid state drive running win 7.
son in law is also playing with a rasberry Pi that he wants to hook up to either bedroom or basement tv wirelessly. Still playing with that

I am a tech freak (Got SSD??? - my first was in 2008) but still just on hard copy DVDs and Blu-rays only. I refuse to put all of that time into ripping the 100s of DVDs around here. However, my daughter is getting older and I might have to outsource the work. HA!

Of course your scenario is a bit different from mine, although I do work from home I don't generally travel except for vacations...so if I was in the same boat as you I would probably have a similar setup.

HA I did that with my CDs, I showed my kids how to use EAC and gave them a quarter per. Got expensive but money well spent. Miss the slight loss in quality sometimes but more than makes up for it in the quantity of what I can take with me.

I'll be honest- I just setup my personal laptop up beside me while I work. For movies, it's pop the DVD in, change the file name and click "Start". I save the TV show DVDs for my own time when I have to type each individual episode name and queue it up.

I have a 16TB media server at home and have Cat5e run to every room in the house. All 7 TV's have wired media players. I have over 3000 (physical) DVD's in our collection and all are ripped to server. I keep original DVD/BD format when ripping. In the camper I've run cat5e to each of the 3 inside TV's and an outlet in the basement. I have 12TB of drive space on the server, and about 8 of that is filled. I've tried the wifi route, but just can't get enough through put to run HD or multiple locations without stuttering.

True, but then you have to deal with read errors due to scratched discs etc. Much rather have the daughter learn a lesson from it. Don't take care of your things and see what happens years later? NO MOVIE FOR YOU!!! lol Seinfeld.

LOL! That's one of the biggest benefits to this exercise- no more scratched discs!
