I would like to copy all of my movies, on DVD, to HDD without losing the subtitles. I plan to get rid of the 30 or 40 originals, but still be able to enjoy the movies as much by streaming them to the TV.
So far I have MakeMKV and Handbrake. By the way the latter is NOT, as a PC Advisor article has said, a DVD ripper. Between them they do a good job, but the subtitles are lost. I have been looking at a number of website reviews pointing to a number of freeware products, but all, so far, have failed or not been free. I don't mind paying, within reason, but I would like to find something that I don't end up uninstalling fifteen minutes later. In the past I've spent too much on stuff that turns out not to do what the reviewer guessed at. Ideally I would like a product that, if it is not free, has a trial period that allows me to test it fully on, say, two DVDs before locking up. The last one I tried allowed a five minute DVD only....(???)
