Handbrake DVD Ripper On Linux

"Upon opening the application for the first time you're presented with a pretty nice looking interface, simple enough and not overcrowded but incorporating all the features you could need. One thing I did find strange is that the program didn't automatically detect the DVD I'd loaded in my drive, instead I had to manually select the correct device. I'm using a Dell m1330n laptop and I only have one optical drive, the one selected was labeled "dvd" so I chose "dvdrw" from the dialog and then everything worked. I don’t know if this is a quirk of the program or a quirk of my hardware but once I'd figured this out it wasn’t too much hassle. I have to do this whenever I want to rip a new disc, it doesn't auto-detect which would be a nice feature. I decided to test it by ripping an episode of Spaced, a British comedy series that I highly recommend if you haven't seen it."
