I know someone who uses Mac DVD Ripper Pro (FKA Mac the Ripper) to rip, then use Toast Titanium or Popcorn to compress and burn, If you need to make a backup of a DVD you own.

They're both paid apps, but they work very well.

The DVD (which by the way standard for Digital Versatile Disc) can be used for movies via the VIDEO_TS folder, but can also be used for pure audio discs.

These audio discs are not the same as audio CDs or but can instead contain full 5:1 surround audio and at higher bit rates. They are called unsurprisingly DVD Audio discs. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-Audio

On these DVD Audio discs, it would be usual to have an AUDIO_TS folder containing files and no VIDEO_TS folder.

I personally use Mac DVDRipper Pro. I think I got it from a MacUpdate promo and it has served me well. Very easy to use and cheap.

Handbrake actually doesn't recommend ripping DVDs using Handbrake, something to do with not supporting lossless codecs according to their FAQ. In one version (I haven't tried later ones) you actually needed to have VLC installed to be able to rip DVDs because of the libdecss not being allowed to be distributed no thanks to the idiots at the MPAA.

I would stick to a proper DVD ripper than using a video convertor.
