I found a viable solution by combining MakeMKV and Handbrake:
MakeMKV is able to extract the Video from the DVD by simply copying the data of selected titles (or chapters, it is very flexible) into one MKV file including all the soundtracks and subtitles, if you want that. Since no encoding happens, the process is pretty fast and the files are big. MakeMKV ...
My tool of choice is Exact Audio Copy (Windows). As the name suggests, it can be used to create very precise copies of audio tracks. Just make sure you don't select the "fast" option when you first run it. Choosing fast will do less error correction in case of read errors or sync errors.
Exact Audio Copy can save to uncompressed WAV files (be sure to select ...
This is a software recommendations site and cuetools is the ripper I favour on windows. On linux, the pedant's choice would be cdparanoia
FLAC does some compression - but this is of data not psycoacoustic compression. This should work well enough.
If you want no compression at all, just use wav files.
My second candidate was XCFA. Though not a "perfect" match, this one meets most of my requirements (to be more precise: all of the must-haves, half of the optionals, none of the "not needed", and about nothing of the "not wanted"). So this is what I've settled with for now:
XCFA (source: UbuntuWiki; click image for larger variant)
Runs on Linux, even comes ...
I've found RipperX looking quite promising after reading some reviews:
Runs on Linux, even comes in the Repos of Ubuntu
Detects my drive fine, rips, and encodes – even with support for CDParanoia
Supports MP3 (via LAME), OGG, and more
Allows me to specify the bitrate
Supports Freedb (pre-configured) and obviously also similar sources (URL etc. can be edited)...
Hi @Izzy :) first I have not personally used this software but after more reserach I found out that it may suite your requirement and this should be what you are looking for ,I can recommend fre:ac,This software offers the following features that I have mentioned below.
It currently converts between MP3, MP4/M4A, WMA, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, WAV and Bonk ...
K9Copy can do that at least for DVDs:
K9Copy (source: Wikipedia; click image for larger variant)
It's main goal is to make DVD9 content fit onto a DVD5 (by e.g. re-encoding video, or drop unwanted audio tracks). The result is then saved to an .iso file. So if you don't "shrink" anything, you should get a 1:1 copy in the resulting ISO.
Though development ...
Due to some "inconveniences" with XCFA, I've taken a closer look at asunder, and found it quite handy. Except for the additional playlist format XCFA offers (which I don't need anyway), it seems to offer the same features just in a different way – with an easier/clearer looking GUI:
Asunder with main window while ripping / supported formats (click images ...
I want to begin saying that, personally, I always thought Exact Audio Copy (EAC) is a bit too complex for the novices or average users. In the past I used to use Audiograbber it did quite good job for me but, just like EAC, required the user to separately download and add LAME mp3 encoding library so, even if menus/options were more comfortable than EAC, it ...
Exact Audio Copy (EAC) is my favorite CD ripping software. It works on Windows and is free.
It supports ripping to WAV format out of the box. To convert to MP3 format, you need LAME. Install that first, if possible. It will then be detected by EAC.
As you've obviously never done this before, you may want to start in simple mode. Once you know more about it,...
I have been using CDEX for many years, safe and sane software. Free also.
After install run cdex and go to settings
Then Directories and files, set the output directory to what you want, this is where you will find the mp3's after conversion. Set the filename format as shown.
Then go to CD drive settings and set it as shown
Now go to ...
You're asking for a program that will do two things:
Decrypt Blurays and save them as files on your computer
Convert (re-encode) these files into a variety of different formats
I am not aware of any program that does BOTH of these things, and I am relatively confident that no such program exists. Instead, what you need are two programs: one for decryption, ...
MusicBee is a full featured portable music library and media player with ripping capabilities that runs on Windows 7 and newer.
It has among other features ripping capabilities using a myriad of third party or builtin libraries and methods. Under Edit > Preferences > Ripping you can set multiple options including a mode Quick Rip or Secure and also a ...
"Best" is relative but I'm a big fan of cuetools/cueripper
It handles Flac and quite a few other codecs with different back ends, does accurate rips and checks the rips against a DB. Its portableish (needs .net but no install) - so testing to see if it meets your needs would be pretty painless.
Windows' own built-in Media Player can rip CDs to WAV or AIFF - which is "original quality" 16-bit 44.1kHZ uncompressed, as well as to MP3 etc.
It's not open-source, but it's free ;)
After that you can convert to any format you like. For quality vs size, I'd recommend AAC over MP3, AAC can be lossy or lossless, just like FLAC, but has wider ...
I already posted an answer suggesting fre:ac but there's another software I'd like to suggest here: CUETools's CUERipper, an utility for extracting digital audio from CDs.
Just like fre:ac, CUERipper is an open-source alternative to EAC available for MS Windows OS (requires Microsoft .NET Framework and Visual C++ runtime).
It is even easier than fre:ac to ...
For those who don't know how to start Handbrake:
Download HandBrake from . Install handbrake. Now visit either [2 for 32 bit OS] or [3 for 64 bit OS] and it should autodownload the file. Now place this file into the program files folder for handbrake (dont put it into any of its subfolders). Now you can pop in your DVD and start ripping copy protected ...
MakeMKV is a program for Windows, macOS, and Linux that can rip DVD and Blu-ray discs into the versatile MKV video format. There are other paid programs that offer more features, like DeUHD and AnyDVD, but we'll be using MakeMKV Crack for this tutorial, since it's free. (Technically, it's only free while in beta, but it's been "in beta" for about 10 years. ...
I use a command line tool, ddrescue, for this. I don't know how well it would work if the disc has any form of DRM but it worked fine for my old home videos that were burned to a DVD.
sudo apt-get install gddrescue
Then use this command to create an iso in the directory of your choice:
ddrescue /dev/sr0 ~/isos/filename.iso
Where /dev/sr0 is the path to ...
I use Max from sbooth.org which is released under the GPL. It doesn't appear to have been updated in a while but I still use it daily (10.8 and 10.9) to rip CD's to Apple Lossless although according to the website:
Max can generate audio in over 20 compressed and uncompressed formats
including MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, AAC, Apple Lossless, Monkey's Audio,
