"Hi, I have a number of old DVDs that I want to download to my computer. I know that I need to rip the video from the DVD and convert it to a digital format to make it easier to save and share the video. But what is the best way to download DVD to Windows 10 computer?"

Most people want to save the videos in their DVD discs to their computer so that they can share them more easily with others. But if you were just to copy the video file from your DVD disc to your computer, you would find that the file is too large and may not be supported by many playback apps and devices. Therefore, the best way to get the videos on to your PC or Mac is to download them from the DVD or what is commonly known as ripping.

This way, you can choose a much suitable format for the videos depending on what you need them for and the playback devices you want to use. If you don’t know how to do that, don’t worry. This guide will show you three ways to download  DVD to computer on both Mac and Windows.

Part 3. How to Copy DVD to Computer Using Windows Media Player

Windows Media Player can be used to play DVD, but it may not be useful when you want to download or rip the video from the DVD. Because Windows Media Player could be used to rip music from CD, most people assume that it can do the same with DVD, but the program doesn’t have the capability to rip DVDs.

Therefore, if you want to download DVD to your computer in one of the many digital formats, you may benefit more from Aicoosoft Video Converter and Handbrake Video Converter than Windows Media Player. Aicoosoft in particular offers you more options when it comes to the output format.
