As we all know, though Blu-ray has appeared for more than 10 years, DVD still takes up the dominant position in optical disc storage medium. However, DVDs can only be played with DVD players. What if we want to see the DVD in our iPad or iPhone? Is there any app that can help us rip DVD to PC? Here's how to use the applications to burn DVD to PC, whatever format you like, so you can play the movies wherever and however you want.
