1Click DVD Copy Pro

I am reading about DVD ripping software am looking for one that can make a smaller copy to the hard drive so I can watch them on my netbook that does not have a DVD drive. Does anyone know if 1Click DVD Copy Pro can do this?Or is there a better product to run under Windows 7?

I don't know about that one, but I'm using this,

Magic DVD Ripper - rip DVD to hard drive or blank DVD

It's got a free trial to check it out and see if you like it.

It's got quite a few different profiles you can convert to,

There are several free alternatives... or at least betas that are free for the time being. If you can play .mkv files, maybe using Splash Lite, the MakeMKV can rip DVD to an .mkv file. It's very fast since it doesn't shrink it. The free AutoGK can actually make to good looking .avi file from a DVD title set in one pass. Plus it will autocrop so that "letterboxed dvds" come out as 16x9.

Many dvds you can still rip and shrink with DVD Shrink.

Also DVD Rebuilder uses a transcoder called ReJig that is still fast, but does a bit more thorough job than Shrink. DVD Shrink if the percentage is 85% or higher I figure the movie will still look pretty good. With DVD Rebuilder and ReJig you can go as low as 70 or 75% and still have a decent flick to watch. DVD Rebuilder is a specialty software to take a DVD9 movie and shrink it to DVD5 without losing much quality(and if you use the full blown encoders that come with, such as HC Enc, then you can compress even more.)

I find most of the "Rip the DVD and convert it directly to your HD" type programs such as you see on Give Away of the Day aren't worth the install. Some films they will rip and convert ok but too often they mess up the aspect ration(people look squashed or stretched) and the only way to tell is run it. I find it better to use the best of the freeware programs.

It's good to have several tools that do the same thing. Sometimes one won't like a particular input file but another will process it fine. There's a lot of quirks to converters and muxers.

I tried Magic DVD and it gave errors on 3 of the discs I tried to rip saying they might be scratched. I tried AutoGK and let it run for over an hour with no progress on the ripping so canceled it. Ironically I can pop the disc in my Wife's Mac and run handbrake with no problem, but would rather have a Windows alternative.

With AutoGK I always rip to a HD folder. Then load the main movie vob set.
DVDFab Passkey is in beta so you can install it for free and use it for at least 2 months. Once it tells you the disc is ready you just drag & drop the VIDEO_TS folder to your HD using explorer.
