Ripping refers to copying audio or video content to a hard disk, typically from removable media. Being one of the most widely used portable storage media, DVD ripping has gained lot of traction in recent times. Ripping commercial DVDs is a gray area legally, so make sure you are well within the law before you go ahead and rip your DVD.

From Wiki,

A DVD ripper is a software program that facilitates copying the content of a DVD to a hard disk drive. They are mainly used to transfer video on DVDs to different formats, to edit or back up DVD content, and for converting DVD video for playback on media players and mobile devices. Some DVD rippers include additional features, such as the ability to decrypt DVDs, remove copy preventions and make disks unrestricted and region-free.
