Ripping downloaded files that won't copy

I have some files that are legal but refuse to be copied they don’t say if they are .mkvs but they ignore my programs like dvd santa and ulead. I joined a fansub just for these stupid files. I don’t want to wait until they are on dvd because they won’t be like the originals. Any ideas?
