After the DVD is imported in, we can click the round green button with a white check (Common Settings button) on the right top of the main interface to open the Common Settings window and do some settings.


1) To rip DVD, we should select "DVD Copy" on the left pane of the Common Settings window and "DVD Folder" as the default output target.


2) Go to "General" to browse and select the output directory. On Windows 7 the default output will be C:\Users\username\Documents\DVDFab\


There are multiple functions on the upper part of the General interface for you to select according to your needs.


Rip DVD>Step 4: Advanced settings

1) On the left pane of the main interface, you can select "Full Disc" if you want to rip all the content of the original disc, or "Main Movie" if you want to rip only the main movie —the longest title.

2) You should select "Copy DVD-Video (VIDEO_TS folder)" by default.

Select "Remove annoying PGCs" to eliminate unwanted program chains like FBI warnings if you want.

3) Change the volume label as you like just by typing into the Volume Label text box. Use the same name of the movie title is better.

4) For the quality setting, we can select DVD9 for 100% quality with no compression, or DVD5 with a lower quality which will (if needed) compress the output to a size that would fit a single layer DVD.


Rip DVD>Step 5: Choose a target

We can choose a target in the hard drive by clicking (folder icon) or click (ISO icon) to select a default ISO file to store ripped files. Here we choose the default file folder in the Target drop-down list.
