funny, it is probably easier to copy and burn than to copy and encode, which is what you're wanting to do. either way the source must be copied/read. I guess you could just rip the .VOB right off and use that but if your wanting to store more than a handful of "rips" on your computer you'll want to encode/compress. You can get significant storage space savings with acceptable video quality (esp. depending on what you plan to view the vids on).

For the mechanics I turn you to google. Really, the information is so widely available you should be ashamed for having to ask. You owe it to yourself to teach yourself. Besides, there are so many means and methods that only you can select the best for your specific needs.

yeah but make it .avi (DivX, XviD ect.) first get dvd decryptor (free, google it) and rip the dvd to your computer (do it in IFO mode). once you have the video_ts file you can encode it using gordian knot (i recommend auto gordian knot for nubs), you can pick the file size and all that. gordian knot is freeware as well. there's tons of tutorials out there on how to use it, with autogk you really only have to click like 4 times. you can set the speed, format, audio bitrate, tons of other stuff if you're so inclined. video encoding is one of the most processor intensive things you can do on your computer, so if you got a dinosaur it's gonna suck and take forever. any more questions let me know :stoned:

There's a thin line between sanity and insanity... and I just snorted it.
