A while ago I shipped a few VHS tapes of mine to someone that I paid to transfer them to DVDs and ship them back. I thought I could move the content from the DVDs to my computer as a mpg file that I could view and upload to my website, but apparently I need a DVD ripping program for that. Since I haven't been able to find any free downloadable programs, I'm trying to find a cheap (under $30) program that will transfer all of the video from the DVD to my computer as something like a mpg, preferably something that can transfer it so that the videos (which are around 30 minutes long) will have a fairly small file size while still having relatively the same quality that it would have on the DVD. Can anyone recommend any programs for me? Thanks,

-Alec

Also www.videohelp.com is a great place for help on playing/ripping/converting multimedia on computers.

Thanks for the links!
I downloaded Xilisoft DVD Ripper 4 and everything worked fine, except by only 1% into the transfer from the DVD to MPEG-2, the file was already 67MB, and that was just 1% out of the first 5 minutes, since the first 5 minutes of the DVD is all that the trial version will transfer. That's 67MB for just 3 seconds of video...if I had let the whole process run, it would have ended up being 6,700MB, or 6.5GB, for only five minutes of video..which definitely doesn't seem right. Before I decide whether or not to buy it, can someone tell me why it's transferring so that it's huge, and if there's anything I can do to change it? I know it's possible to have high-quality mpegs that are 20 or 30 minutes long and around 140MB in file size, so how do I do the same? Thanks again.

Check out these posts and see if they help you: DVD Ripping & Burning.

Also, 140MB of video is a very small amount. Normal 90min movies I have backed up run around 4 - 4.5GB and some DVD9 (dual Layer) ones can be around 7GB so you need a lot of room before you start.

Cheers
