Given the inexpensive cost of storage - internal and external - I think it is time for me to start ripping my DVD content onto HDs so I can better travel with it. I was preparing to rip some TV series (Sopranos, Battlestar Galactica, Arrested Development, The Wire, etc.) and some movies (The Big Lebowski, LOTR, etc.) when it occurred to me: I really have no idea how much HD space some/all of these things will take up until I have actually done it. By then, I may have wasted a lot of time putting them on the wrong sized HD for my needs (eg putting half of a TV series onto a HD only to need to complete it on a second drive). So, I thought I would start a thread (I didn't see any like it in a search - if anyone finds one, please link to it) where people who have already ripped their content onto a HD can post the size of the file as a sort of "heads up" to others who want to rip their content as well. I am generally thinking about ripping for viewing with the DVD player on my Macs and will post accordingly, so if you have ripped a smaller file for use on a iPod or iPhone, please note that. Feel free to add what app you used to rip, as well. Thanks to the last MU bundle, I think RipIt will be my tool of choice. Also, I'm not even sure this is the best forum to put this, but I can see it getting kicked out of others. If you have a better idea of where it should be moved to, please advise. Otherwise, I look forward to reading your file sizes and thanks in advance to anyone who can give me an idea of the size of any of the content I listed above.
