    Trying to help a friend with a new PC to rip his dvds. What program should I point him to??

    Freeware would be best. Thanks

    I like DVDShrink.

    It's free, it's easy to figure out, and it can compress dual-layer DVDs down to single-layer as it decrypts.

    I haven't used it much since I switched to Mac a year ago, so I'm not sure how well it does with the new encryption some studios have been using.

    While it's not free, I like DVDFab Platinum ( http://www.dvdfab.com/ ), it pretty much can copy any DVD (works with the latest DVD titles) and it's quite fast at it while quality is pretty good. It also can compress dual-layer DVDs (DVD 9) to single layer (DVD 5) as well as it can convert a DVD to PSP or iPod video file.

    I do a LOT of this..
    Use Shrink and also run Any DVD in the backround.
    There are many movies today that Shrink cannot do by itself, Any DVD continues to update and is a great program..
