Q: I need a tool which can help me rip my DVD and Blu Ray discs and store them on a Asustor AS204-T NAS with 4 - 6TB WD Red Label drives configured in a RAID 5 setup for redundancy. I have built the media library to make it easier to access my ripped media. I am in a wheelchair following a 2012 motorcycle accident. By ripping my DVD/Blu Ray movies to MP4, and steaming with PLEX I am able to have easy access to all my movies without having to hunt down and load a particular disc. Any suggestion?
