"I was just researching this tonight. Lifehacker has a 5 best tools list.

What I ended up doing is using the free DVDFab HD Decrypter to copy the DVD to my hard drive. It can decrypt everything I send at it. DVDFab HD Decrypter does the copy without additional compression, so there is no quality loss.

Then I use Handbrake if I want to convert it to a mobile device format like an iPod. It does conversion, but no decryption any more.

Finally if I want to burn it back to a DVD then I use DVD Shrink on the files DVDFab moved to my HDD. It will shrink it to an ISO that fits on a 4.7 MB DVD. DVD Shrink has decryption too, but it isn't being maintained, so some of the newer discs will not decrypt.

If you are on Mac then use MacTheRipper instead of DVDFab to rip the discs. HandBrake will work on both OSs for converting it to your iPod."
