Windows 7: DVD Rippers

DVD Rippers

Hi Guys, Just wondering do any of you use DVD ripping software? if you do what software do you use? any recommendations? I need something that works with both windows 7 and windows XP.

Here is my issue, I never tried ripping before, but I have a PC machine hooked up to my LCD TV to watch movies, but no DVD player on the machine, just a CD player. so to watch DVDs I make an ISO image off the origional DVD on my main PC, then put it on a USB Stick, and watch it on the PC , I map the drive with MagicIso, the PC thinks it's a real DVD.

I'm mainly interested in Ripping DVD Movies to AVI or DivX, because the DVD ISO Image is usually really large like upto 5 GBs in some cases, but I don't want to loose resolutions or quality of the movie, any recommendations on Ripping Software I could use? I don't mind Paid software as long as there is a trial so I can play with it and see if it works for me, but free software is preferable I guess.

Thanks for your help!

DVDFab is a really good all in one type program. Can rip, copy to DVD, ISO or DIVX/XVID. It will also convert to MP4 format compatible with PS3 which is useful for streaming from Windows Media PC. You can download a trial version for free.

hi guys, I tried DVD Ripper on my PC and it works great, but a tad slow but it did the job. but the other day I was at my friends house, and was asked to rip a small sony DVD to their laptop running vista. I forgot which program I used and I didn't have much time to think, I forgot which program I used on my PC, so I did a bit of googling and tried both DVD Shrink and handbrake, here is what happened:

with DVD Shrink, the only option I saw was to use the backup option, in 20 minuts I had two folders, video_ts and audio_ts, this resulted in many files in both folders and I was not sure which ones to keep and which ones to throw, additionally there seems to be 2 VOB files as well, each of them around 700MB which is around half of the size of the DVD which was 1.4GB ( it was a mini DVD). since I didn't have time to play around, I decided to give up and use something else, so I tried Handbrake next, it seemed easy to use and I requested a single AVI as the output, it said that it needs to do 2 tasks, the first one was only 20 minuts, but the second one was 1h !! can you beleave that.. it was a fairly new laptop so I don't know why it was taking so long, for a 1.4GB DVD.. is that normal? it was a toshiba saltelite, fairly new one. I had to leave their house but I told them where the AVI file is located ( desktop lol ) and I hope it works...

Take a look here:
VideoHelp.com - Forum, Guides, Tools and hardware lists

They archive many programs no longer available from the authors, such as RipIt4Me, DVD Decrypter etc..

Also there are many guides on the site, including guides how to use Shrink.

I am partial to the SlySoft package. I have no knowledge if the aforementioned apps will bypass copy protection, but AnyDVD will. Shrink as well as copy DVD/CD. $100 lifetime.
