Does Ripping a DVD Damage It?

Many people still have misconceptions about DVD ripping. What does ripping a DVD mean? It is the process of extracting video or audio files from a DVD disc while encoding DVD contents to digital files, which enables one to play and back up the data with smaller file size on portable devices and achieve other purposes. As most modern DVD discs come with copy protection methods. So DVD ripping also includes circumventing DVD copy protection for accessing DVD contents. Just as you play a DVD or copy files from a DVD disc, ripping a DVD doesn’t cause any physical DVD damage to the DVD disc and it also never alter the data inside. When you happen to meet some hiccups on playing a DVD movie after ripping it, it’s most likely that your DVD player or drive can’t work normally. If there is any possible damage on DVD ripping, endless and long DVD ripping processes require your DVD drive to work for hours, which may make the DVD drive overheated. To get rid of the scenario, a powerful DVD ripper is a safeguard.
