I can't remember it for the life of me but it had a funny name. Anyway it would rip the whole DVD. Title screens and all. It would split them up into AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folders. Now, I'm thinking I would like to convert those buggers to Good 'ole 720p or 1080p (where applicable - is a DVD able to be done in 1080p? really just want top notch quality).

Handbrake??

Can't make it more than it is. MPEG 2 DVDs are, at best, 720 x 576 in the Enlightened World (or 720 x 480 for foreigners). If you make it a larger frame size in the final file, you're just upscaling and making a larger (bytes) file but not improving the quality.

Handbrake's great, but you lose that nifty DVD structure with all the extras.
