OK I am a new bee here. Hi!! I would like to know how to rip dvd to avi or mpeg or any other format. You see I have a lot of dvd and I want to rip them in to files so that I can store them on Hard Drive but I do not know what software is best or what codex I need for my computer. I want to rip the dvd movies to small files about 700mb or smaller but around there would be great but I would like to have or get the best guilty as possible but do not take a lot of time to rip the movie. So can you help me in what is best.
