Actually MakeMKV does a good job of ripping DVD to .mkv files. SPlayer plays them fine. WMP 12 works too, as well as many others. I just like SPlayer since it has a nice portable version.

The DVDFab HD Decrypter suggested by pparks is by far the best ripper. The ripped DVD folders can show up in the Mediacenter, ready to play. But the free version can only rip the full DVD. That would mean near 9GB space on the laptop's HDD for each DVD. If you have many DVDs consider saving the rips to an USB external HDD.

Using MakeMKV as suggested by MilesAhead is the next best solution. The advantage is that you can select only the main movie,one audio track and one subtitle when converting it to MKV. It does not recode anything but saves the original contents of the DVD in the mkv container. Expect near 4GB space requirement for each DVD. However WMP/7MC does not natively support mkv files. Download and install Media Player Classic - Home Cinema Download Media Player Classic Home Cinema, Free Video Player Download and you are through.

( Incidentally MPC Home Cinema can also play Bluray movies with DVDFab Passkeylite running in the background. So why not gift an USB external Bluray Combo drive (Bluray Player/DVD CD writer - an OEM drive without any software will do )to your GF? You may then burn 1:1 copies of all your DVDs on blanks using DVDFab HD Decrypter and present those to her alongwith a few Bluray Movies. Wouldn't she love it/you more? )

There are a number of suitable programs for this, both freeware and shareware/paid products. The one that I use is iCoolsoft DVD Ripper - powerful DVD Ripping software to rip DVD movie to any video/audio formats

I've tried various programs, and, of the ones I've tried, I've found that this program works the best for me.

So the obvious question for me is how's it working under Windows 7 x64 SP1. I saw the system requirements but it makes no mention of 64. I've been interested in getting a DVD ripper as well

Thanks.

It should work fine. I've had no problems with it, and I've used it with Windows 8 Build 7989 64-bit.
