How can I copy a DVD without ripping it?

Episode 1488 (1:48:05)

Jim from Las Vegas, NV

Jim wants to know why he has to rip a DVD rather than just copy it. Leo says he does not really have to, he just needs software that plays the VTS file. Then he'll have access to the menus and other features. But if he just wants a single movie file, then he will need to rip it and encode it into MP4.
