    Hey Guys,

    After finally willing up the courage to start my first new build for 5+ years I now have it under way. Got my case, mobo, PSU and DVD drive today and have started building.

    Now, im going to uni in a year or so and was planning on taking this set up with me to hopefully last most of uni. I COULD take my laptop, PC and entire DVD collection with me but was hoping to just take the PC and maybe the laptop.

    What I need/want is some software (or multiple pieces of software) in which I can stick the DVD in the drive, clicky clicky and rip it to my PC so i can just play it back off there using XMBC or similar

    What have ya got?

    Regards
    Matt

    Probably questionable as to the legality but why not just download them? :)

    AnyDVD + DVDShrink.
    It's the only way to go. To save space, just rip the main title and ditch the dross.

    I use MAKEMKV the beta version is free for DVD's and I then use Handbrake to shrink the file size to a reasonable size (1 to 2GB, down from 4/5GB). Can also use Handbrake to convert from MKV file type to MP4 if you wish.

    I used to use DVD Shrink, but not every DVD works.

    Try MAKEMKV before you pay for other types of software. As said there is no time limit on use with DVD's the 30 day time limit only comes into affect when ripping Blu rays. Even when time limit does expire they regularly update version meaning time limit starts over again. I have been using for over a year and found only 2 disks that it could not rip out of 300.

    Used to use handbrake, but found it quicker to use badaboom for conversion (converts a film in about twenty minutes: handbrake takes about 2 hours on my q9450 at 3ghz). The only problem with badaboom is a loss in quality compared to handbrake for a bigger file.
    The loss in quality I only really notice in a side by side comparison. The file size is a bit of a worry though, but I just do transcoding so I know it'll work through the xbox 360 I use as a media centre extender. Handbrake is very very configurable, but setting it up so the file produced will play properly on media centre is a pain, easier to do for outputting to pc though I reckon.

    Personally just go for DVDDecrypter and bung them on an external HDD without compressing them, then just mount the .iso and you keep all the menus and special features etc.

    Combo of AnyDVD and DVDShrink (for Raw .ISO) or Handbrake (MKV).

    I have most of my collection now ripped to my media server. As alot of my stuff is TV Sitcoms (Dad's Army ... :D) I often just rip the raw ISO and load it in XBMC. It acts as if the DVD is in the drive will full menu's etc.

    This method also saves having to rename each ripped expisode (something I am anal about). Big Bang Theory was "fun" - 3 seasons with 24 episodes on each......

    Anyway, find a method you like and stick with it.

    No Nero can't rip normal DVDs. It doesn't understand the encryption, as far as I'm aware that is.

    nero can act like DVD shrink but it will not read encrypted discs so you need to use a 3rd party decrypter like DVDfab
