Q: "I'm wondering if can save myself a lot of time by dumping the raw content of a DVD to my local disk (SSD). The reason I want to do this is that SSD's are much faster in read/write performance than a DVD. Any idea?"
A: As you know, most modern computers and laptops are equipped with the solid state drive, and what makes the SSD an increasingly popular choice is its ultra-fast speed. Therefore, quite a lot of people intend to copy their DVD collection to SSD-equipped PC or portable SSD for hassle-free playback and backup. If you have no idea how to do that, I'll recommend a marvelous DVD to SSD converter to save you from any trouble.
How to copy and convert DVD to SSD? In fact, the fundamental reason of this problem lies in how to circumvent a variety of DVD copy protection that make people unable to do anything, which is also an important criterion to measure the decryption capacity of various DVD backup programs on the market. After all, apart from a handful of homemade DVDs, most people's DVD collections are dominated by commercial DVDs.

Next, unfold the full list of 300+ predefined presets on the right side. You can choose any common video format or a specific device. MKV is highly recommended because it can hold multiple audio and subtitle tracks in DVD.
Tips. If you need a complete DVD copy with all content preserved, just go to "1:1 Quick Copy" category and choose "ISO" or "DVD Folder" profile directly.
Press the "three-dots" icon on the bottom to choose a destination of your SSD. Once everything is ready, hit "RUN" button to rip DVD to SSD-equipped PC or external SSD.
