Hi Members,

I have a lot of DVDs on my laptop and now its impacting the speed and performance of my computer. i want to store them in a VCD frmat and have tried different tools. But none of the softwares that i used could actually help me. some didnot give me the quality and others did not work well or some took ages to convert files.

Could anyone please suggest a software that i can use to convert my DVDs to VCDs and do that wuick and wth good quality.

The VCD format will normally give lower video quality, than other formats.
This article will help explain the advantages/disadvantages of the different formats.
It also has links to different conversion guides, most of which, use free software.

SVCD might be a better option for you.
It allows for better resolution, and you can get up to 94 minutes, on a 650 MB CD.

If you want to go the, DVD to VCD conversion route, here's a guide that uses free software:
