Hi, I now have a HTPC so I need to convert my dvd collection into avi's or something similar so I can store them on the HDD. I could download them all but it seems a bit pointless when I have the origionals already.

I've heard of dvdshrink but once I've used that won't I still end up with VOB files to burn to another DVD? I need something that will turn it into an avi or something that my HTPC will play?

Do I need to use dvdshrink to get rid of the menus then something else to convert whats left to an avi?

dvdshrink or dvd decryptor - will get the dvd on your harddrive

autogk - this will convert the ripped dvd into an avi filr
DVDShrink for free, but I personally like TMPGEnc DVD Author. Give them both a shot!! :)
thanks guys - I'll have a look into those :)

Or you can try winavi
If DVDshrink has problems because of any encryption on the dvd run anydvd it just sit in the background & takes away any encryption thats on any dvds you are trying to turn in to avi's

Fairuse Wizard 2

Rips the DVD as an AVI to the PC. Quite nifty actually. Freebie too. Google it, there was a really good video guide on how to use it.

A 4.7gb dvd is converted to a 700MB avi ;)
Remember avi files can be massive files unless compressed ,thus taking up alot space on your HDD.A single layered DVD can be upto 4.7 GB ,a DL will be more . To view films while out and about and on holiday I turn my DVD's into xvid or divx files , so you can get a whole SL disk into a file about 700 or 850mb in size without to much picture quality loss using VLC to view them.
