Can't Rip Sony DVD? Best DVD Ripper to Rip Sony and Other Copy-protected DVDs

Sony ARccOS DVD ripping

"How do I rip a DVD that has Sony's ARccOS protection? I tried DVD decrypter and followed the ripping guide of changing settings in the Mode and stuff, but it still doesn't work."

As is known to all, Sony ARccOS is a copy-protection system developed by Sony and used to deliberately create corrupted sectors on some DVDs. And, most of normal DVD players or even Sony players will fail to play ARccOS protected DVDs so that users have to find out functional DVD ripper to cope with the Sony DVD. Although some software can access those corrupted sectors, they will also produce error or directly fail when ripping Sony ARccOS protected DVD.

Common failure cases when ripping DVDs from Sony:

1. I copy protected DVD released by Sony with Mac The Ripper and later the "bad sector" error comes out.
2. DVD Shrink noticed that there is a Navigation error when ripping Sony DVD.
3. My friends used AnyDVD and DVDFab to rip The Pee Mak DVD (a Thai movie) containing a bad sector, but finally failed. Mostly because the variations on bad sector copy protection have not been used on DVDs in the USA or Europe and AnyDVD or DVDFab constantly are updated for Hollywood movies.
4. I applied Isobuster to rip Sony ARccOS protected DVD. It took many hours to extract even a 1-minute length of bad setor of DVD. It seems impossible to pass through the entire bad sector.
... ...

So, the question is: how to painlessly bypass Sony ARccOS DVD copy protection and rip protected DVDs to be compatible with various media players and mobile devices? Simply, you just need to find out a full-featured and functional Sony DVD ripping software.
