DVDFab HD Decrypter is a free DVD and HD ripper that can copy the contents of a movie onto your hard drive even if that movie is copy protected. It can remove DVD copy protections such as CSS, RC, RCE, APS, UOPs and Sony ARccOS and even manages to remove AACS from Blue-Ray and HD-DVD disks which means that it should be possible to copy most DVDs and HD DVDs that you have to your hard disk without running into copy protection problems.

The only aspect that is a little bit confusing is the menu structure. Since this is basically a free version of DVDFab Gold and Platinum not all options are accessible in the main menu. It is only possible to rip the DVD or HD movie to your hard disk removing all copy protection in the process or to uncheck certain elements, such as extra languages or trailers, on the disk before you do that.

The options should be your first stop before you start using DVDFab HD Decrypter. Make sure you change the temp and output directories if your c: drive does not have enough space to hold a full DVD or HD movie.

The Region Code is removed as well by default making the disk universally playable on all players. It seems however that this setting has to be changed in the options whenever a disk with a different region code is inserted. It was automatically set to region 2 and it did not change when I placed a region 1 disk in the drive.

Still no problem unless you have a lot of disks from different regions. DVDFab HD Decrypter is a great tool if you want to copy DVD or HD movies with or without copy protection. Please note that using this tool may be against the law in some countries.

Update: The program is now also available for Mac systems. The program works as a DVD and Blu-Ray decrypter so that you can copy Blu-Ray or DVD movies to your hard drive or on blank discs.

The application supports both NTSC and Pal discs, and even provides you with the means to preview contents using an internal media player.

    Hey RoboBeaR do you know where to get a copy?

    Runs fast and flawless. Couldn’t ask for a better free DVD authoring tool. If it doesn’t work for you try using a better machine…yep, it’s time to muster up some cash and sling it against a 3Ghz CPU with extra RAM and a fat Hard Drive. (Or the real problem could be that you’re a dunce; constantly experiencing human error)

    Way to go y’all @ Fun2Go!
