'MakeMKV', 'Handbrake' or 'VidCoder', those are the tools you'll need to convert a DVD into single video files.

Don't play around with standard presets, until you have a good grasp of what those values mean and how these can affect the result.
Patience is required, regardless of the "horse power" your computer may have. Especially when using HEVC (a.k.a. x265/h265), the conversion is very intensive for RAM and CPU.

Sites like AfterDawn have a lot of guides on how to comvert video files, rip DVDs, etc. Consult those first. Some of those are quite old, but are still valid.

It has been years since I did video conversion but I remember VideoHelp as one of the better sites.  Of course my knowledge may be dated.  Some of the software I used is no longer developed.  :)

Another cool thing about video help, it has a list of "remote hacks."  Many region one dvd players will revert to region free if you follow the instructions posted by users of the particular dvd player.  I had 2 models of Philips DVD player and an Oppo.  They all became region free after entering the remote control sequences listed on dvd help.

I tried handbrake and makemkv.
handbrake fails with the dvd, but makemkv is very nice.
Problem solved !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
