    Handbrake and Win 8

    Recently dumped my iMac for a Windows 8 POWERHOUSE from Dell. Unfortunately my Handbrake app will not copy commercial DVD movies, although this is easily done on a Mac running Handbrake. Any suggestions? Any FREE Handbrake styled alternatives for Windows out there?

    you need to bypass the copy protection before you can get handbrake to transcode it. how did they get around that on the Mac???

    once you've ripped the movie to the hard drive sans copy protection, you can easily use handbrake on it.

    Slysoft is well-known for a slew of great products. Check them out. Also DVDFab.

    the free stuff is kind of antiquated. stuff like DVD Decrypter, DVD Shrink, etc.
