    its hard to say exactly what is the best software to use and with the right knowledge they are are all easy to use. it would depend on what you want from your burning software. try out some freeware or trial versions first before laying out any cash for something that may not suit your needs
    good luck

    There are tons of freebies; DVDFab Decrypter, RipIt4Me, DVD Shrink, DVD Decrypter, VobBlanker, FixVTS, ImgBurn, etc. and yes you can rip and backup any dvd with these tools if you knows how to use them.

    For newbies, I'd say go with the most easiest way as below:

    <> DVDFab Decrypter to rip
    <> DVD Shrink to transcode (compress)
    <> ImgBurn to burn your final VIDEO_TS or ISO image

    Here are some great guides http://www.dvdplusvideo.com/Guides.html (like Jigsaw said; "pick your choice.") We're entitled to our judgment and preference, but I prefer DVDFab Decrypter or RipIt4Me to rip and the rest is history -- however, the choice is yours.

    Absolutely follow Alkohol's advice about all these free programs They WORK. But after you get going with those and money's not tight, there is a paid for program ($39,$34 with coupon)with a free 21 day trial that will uncomplicate your tasks. AnyDVD is the program from slysoft.com It just sits on your pc and fools the pc into thinking the DVD is not encrypted. It is updated weekly and free for life. It allows you to use the programs alkohol suggests, Shrink and DVDDecrypter and also Nero Recode and (CloneDVD2 also from slysoft;) just EASIER. AnyDVD also contains a ripper and it protects your pc from the Sony rootkit crap that's on some of their cds.

    thanks and no offence to nero lovers but i try to avoid nero i find it unnecceseraly complicated,time consuming,and cluttered with a whole heap of crap that i'll never use, besides divxtodvd is so simple doesnt take all day to set up to find out that there is an error waiting when you click BURN. I need one program that converts dvd to avi and avi to dvd, forget the burning i got that covered. does a program like this exist? i mean it should,right? if one program can convert an avi to dvd and another can convert dvd to avi its not an immpossible feat. it would be more user friendly and satisfying to own a powerful tool like that, especially if your like me and prefer to spend more time with my kids instead of combing the internet for the right package or juggling around between 3 or 4 different programs its 2007 man cmon wheres the goodies we're working with old stuff here, this sux. and in regards to piracy all the programs you guys advised should work fine instead of tellin people what programs to use to copy stuff maybe you should tell them not to burn things instead of turning them into pyros, or maybe what flick they should buy next. just like you man im only tryin to help someone in their quest for information.
    peace bro

    ive tried googling every combination that i could think of thats how i ended up here.
    sorry for soundin like an A/hole before, some of the seniors that reply to newbies are pricks with useless information and act like the internet police.
    i do respect the forum rules and only wanna make friends and not be useless to them.
    thanks for not losin your cool garmoon,you offer great freindly advice, keep up the good work.
    im not sure you understand what im looking for but if you find anything be sure to let me know. my computer world knowledge is unsuperior and basic, i kinda like it that way, sorta like being happy without a brain, heat seekin pleasure machine, grasshopper.
    peace bro

    I googled it also and I could not find a DVD to AVI and AVI to DVD all in one program either. That's probably planned so you have to buy or use two programs. Surely there's a freebee some where which does both? Other Members feel free to chime in.

    Edit:I see you started a thread asking about what you want. Better idea at least now everyone will see exactly what you want.
