Author by Oswald

Updated on May 14, 2021

A VIDEO_TS directory stores all data for the DVD-Video. To back-up your DVD content in a perfect 1:1 copy, VIDEO_TS folder is what you should copy to your HDD. Well, it's not as easy as it sounds and I believe you have failed to copy VIDEO_TS to hard drive and are puzzling over some error messages, right? If you are fed up with related issues and looking for an easy solution, this page can provide timely help.

A few days ago, I saw this fairly typical question asked on a forum.

I want to copy my DVDs to local hard drive, so I can share them over my network with my other devices. I succeeded in copying some VIDEO_TS directories to my HDD, but failed with most of my DVDs with a Copy Protection Error. Does anyone know how to sort this out, please help!

You are not the only one who has encountered this problem. In fact, this is a very common issue when copying DVDs. For home-made DVDs, like those burned by DVD Burning Software, you can directly copy the VIDEO_TS folder to your hard drive disk, smooth as silk.

When it comes to commercial DVDs, however, one can't directly copy the VIDEO_TS folder from a DVD. And you can't copy the VOB files from a DVD either. You will encounter Error 0x80030309 Copy Protection Error when copying, thanks to various DVD copy protections of all purchased DVDs. Neither drag & drop nor copy and paste will do any good in that case. Copy protections nowadays are tricky enough that it's no-go for an individual to remove/bypass it without a proper third-party tool. Thus here comes a professional DVD ripping tool I highly recommend, to avoid DVD copy protection failure.

Step 3 (Optional). Convert DVD/ISO/VIDEO_TS to Video Formats

You know what? I wouldn't suggest you save DVD content as VIDEO_TS folders. It's inconvenient to play/watch anyway, since those VOB files are disordered and scattered. What about a perfect video file with much smaller size and better quality?

Go to the output file format section as what you did in Step 2, and select "Video" section from the category box instead. Select an output video format by clicking the corresponding format icon.

I recommend you to convert DVD to MP4 for the best compatibility. Dig high quality with smaller file size? Learn how to transcode DVD video to H.265.

Hit "Run" when ready to start the ripping process.
