I had DVDFab in an effort to begin digitizing my existing music DVD library to MP4 or MP3. I have a number of music DVDs, among which The Beatles, Let it Be, The Smithereens, The Cult, Doobie Brothers are my favorite. The initial test I did with the five-minute limit was what convinced me to purchase the full license, but right after the second try, I reconsidered that choice.
To begin with, the DVD titles were saving incorrectly, which left me having to re-title the files on my home server. In addition to that, the thumbnail images attached to each movie file (.mp4) were completely incorrect. The final problem was that I had only had one out of SIX music DVD rip completely. The other had only ripped a portion of the complete length, resulting in an unusable file. I was hesitant to start over because each DVD was taking approximately 6 hours to rip with this being the only process-taking place on my computer.
While I want to continue this project, I have my doubts as to whether or not this product is ever going to work properly until very recently. I am looking for a solution again on Google to rip and digitalize my music DVDs to MP3 or MP4. After searching the options, I looked the WonderFox DVD Video Converter; I liked all the features and decided to download to try and I do think it is the very program for ripping music DVDs.
I like rock music. You see my favorite Absolute Garbage, The Beatles, Let it Be, The Smithereens, The Cult, Doobie Brothers are all rock music. The group, Doobie Brothers, has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide throughout their career. They all definitely need to be digitalized and ripped to MP4 in order for forever maintenance.
To be able to rip those DVDs, I tried many DVD rippers in the market and finally found WonderFox DVD Video Converter. I tried the trial and it makes me believe it is the very music DVD rippers for my collections and I paid the full version. It does a great job.

This is what I do for ripping Absolute Garbage.
1. Load DVD for analyzing.
Click the Load DVD button to load. Here my example is Absolute Garbage from
American rock band Garbage, released on July 23, 2007. Click OK for the music DVD ripper analyzing. This generally won’t take long, mostly within seconds.
2. Right title for music DVDs.
Right after Absolute Garbage is analyzed, WonderFox DVD Video Converter highlights the main title for you. It is Title 19 and it is over 1 hour. We know that this music DVD is about two hours. What’s the rest? We just have to scroll up and we found title 4/59 minutes! We can simply click on the preview and that it!
3. Mp4 as the output for music DVD
We see that MP4 comes the default output. With the smart fit feature for audio and video codec, we don’t have to change that. If you’d prefer other video formats like MP3 or iPhone 6/6S, click the output format to change.
4. Set the output folder
You are free to set the output folder to whatever folder you like, NAS, external hard drive.
Merge all videos into one large file is bonus feature for ripping music DVDs. All songs in Doobie Brothers are in different titles and I will have to merge them for constant playback.
6. Run ripping
Generally, you just have to do the above step 2,3,4 and 5 once. For the second time you use the music DVD ripper, the app will remember all your options and you can just go to this last step for ripping. Well, like RUN and let the program do the rest ripping for you.
