I'm looking for any alternative programs like MakeMKV.

I checked out HandBrake, but HandBrake compresses the video of the DVD. I'm looking for a program that preserves all quality, just like MakeMKV.

I always like having a contingency plan :)

I wasn't really sure where to post this question at. If anyone can point this thread in a better location then I'd appreciate that.

You might try ANYDVD from slysoft:

or their other products:

But it looks like you get a 21 day trial period and then you gotta pay them.

Anydvd removes the regional restrictions on a disk, allowing it to be played on most dvdrom, without having to change that dvdrom's current regional setting.

There are howver more than a few drives where it may not work... Mostly Panasonic's subsidiary brand Mats.ita (The . Is an "h" and the net nanny won't allow the full name to show if that "h" is present here).

I'm not aware that Anydvd actually does any ripping though..? I've used it for an age as regional opt out, but nothing more. Dvdshrink (if still around) will allow ripping and re-authoring of most dvd; and various degrees of copying - compressed or not.

I prefer ByteCopy to Handbrake because I tried the latter, it failed on some new DVDs I ordered recently. Unlike Handbrake, ByteCopy works great especially on backing up DVDs to MKV without quality loss.

Thanks for the all input guys!

The end result in my quest for backing up movies is I'm making ISOs of my DVDs and Blu-rays. I know the size of ISOs is quite large, but I don't care about that. I have plenty of storage and my focus is purely on quality.

I have tried many of these products (and spent some money and time on it) so I can take my family's movies out of the hands of my toddlers and put them in a NAS digitally. I find ByteCopy is the best one I have found. The lossless Blu-ray backkup function is above other products I have used by a good measure. And it is pretty fast as well.
