You should always rip a DVD first to your HDD and then use whatever video converting software you wish to use (such as Handbrake etc.)
I always use "DVDFab HD Decrypter" which is FREE and can be downloaded from the following link:
DVDFab HD Decrypter. Free to Decrypt DVD and Blu-ray, free to Copy DVD and Blu-ray.
Actually this program can do a lot IF you pay for it BUT the DVD Ripping section is FREE and using it will do a straight rip (with no compression nor transcoding).
