Obviously, you'll need an optical drive connected to a Mac to use Handbrake to rip it.

Can anyone answer for me the mystery of how you get Handbrake to work on Windows/Linux? I've never been able to get anything approaching the quality of OS X, usually highly pixelated with green "insufficient data" bits blocking half the moving pictures.

I just ripped a movie on my Windows laptop with Handbrake and it came out fine. I just set it to High Quality and let it rip. It was even running in the background.

For Mac OS X, I've been very happy with RipIt (a paid App but, you might be able to do a rip as a free trial). You can tell RipIt where you want the file to be stored (and change that around as needed). RipIt occasionally shows up in bundled app specials.

I believe you can do 3-5 rips before having to buy...been using it for a long time and very happy with it as well.

If memory serves me, I believe you can continue the trial by creating a new user each time you reach the limit.
