Ok so I have read a lot of articles but I have yet to find the an answer, a direct one. I have a HTPC and I want to copy all my DVD titles to HDD, I have Nero 7, AnyDVD, Intervideo CopyDVD5 and all the other tools listed on all the sites. My goal is to have a foot print of no more than 2gig per movie and retain the DTS/THX/5.1 Dolby audio. 90% of my movies are in English with no subtitles. My question is which tool is best for the ripping and which one to get it down to the size I want. I also need a recommendation on which player/tool is best to play back the movies in MCE 2005. I have been playing around with this for about a month now and have not had great success, can anyone help me please with the proper settings etc?
