Hi V1p3r ,
i have utility DVD Decrypter u can rip any dvd to hard drive its size is 366kb only ,very useful i haved ripped many dvd's the best part is that it can detect main movie files so that we can save some space on disk, not necessary to rip entire dvd cause other files has info about subtitles ,5.1 audio,making of movie etc etc, but we can select entire dvd also but that will take space on your hard drive ,
pm me ur email id and i will mail u the utility

Ok, thanks guys. The wares worked. Now, though I hate to sound choosy, can someone tell me how to compress the files? Can I use DivX?

The rippers (dvdshrink, dvddecrypter, et all) would rip the DVD to the HDD. Thats about it. No format conversion. Remove the CSS encryption, break many of the everchanging copy protection schemes that hollywood keeps adding and put the DVD on your hard disk.

To make backup disks, in case you have a DVD writer, you do not need to change formats. at the most split the DVD into two - most of the commercial movie DVDs are double layered while the economical and readily available recordable DVDs come in the single layer format.

In case you want to backup to CD, Divx/xVid would be a good choice.
You would need software like Gordian Knot (freeware) along with Divx codecs to encode the DVD to Divx format.

You can get a lot of info as well as guides on ripping and transcoding at www.doom9.org.

You can always PM me for any specific info in this regard.

Get a copy of DVDDecrypter. The site mentioned above does not work anymore as the author of DVDDecrypter was threatened by Macrovision as they were scared he would crack their new DVD security system.

Anyway if you know where to look it is still available. Try http://www.mrbass.org/ click on DVD ripping. It has a full guide on there. If you want 1:1 copies of the discs just use ISO read mode to copy them as images to your HD. You can then get Daemon tools and mount the image when you want to view it http://www.daemon-tools.cc.

When you open the discs in DVDDecrypter it will tell you how many gig the disc is. If it is single layer then just rip them as they are.

If they are 7/8 odd gig dual layer and you are concerned about them using all your HD space then get DVD Shrink again go to www.mrbass.org and click on the DVD Shrink Guide link and reduce the size of each disc so they fit on a single layer disc (4.4gig). You can download the software from there as well.
