If storage is no object, then why convert?

Just rip the dvd to the computer. You will save tons of time by not converting.

After a few hundred posts my thought is to try this a few ways to go with what you like.

back up or convert them to avi or wmv format
by moyeun / May 13, 2009 8:48 PM PDT

To get higher quality, I suggest you don't convert your DVDs but just back up them to hard drive. Doing this need least time and keep highest quality. If you insist on converting it, avi or wmv format would be better choice. But they need much more ripping time than backing up. You can search a proper ripping or coping software on http://www.idealdvdcopy.com . I think some of them can completely meet your needs.
