WHAT I WANT TO DO IS Rip my DVDs to my harddrive in a format that will play on any newer PC ( so no, crazt codecs that are impossible to track down etc). The second and equally important thing that i want to do is to rip with a quality that is as good as the dvd. I'm not worried about file size, just quality. Lastly, my machine also acts a media center pc, so the files will have to play equally well on both my PC and TV I have been trying to master DVDX but i am finding that i cannot get it quite as good as the original dvd. The colors are not as vivid and the resolution is just a bit sub-par for me. All of the guides i have found online are centered around ripping to one cd so they have not helped much. Does anyone know of a guide (or tool) specifically for ripping DVDs that are as clear as the orignal? Any help here is appreciated.
