    Assuming your dvd is not protected, the cheapest, as in 'free', would be to use DVD Shrink.
    http://www.mrbass.org/dvdshrink/

    Run Shrink, click 'Open Disc'.
    Click 'Reauthor', drag the file, 'Title 1' from right pane to left pane.
    Click on the 'Start/End Frames' symbol (two arrows, pointing right/left)and choose the section of movie that you need.
    Click 'Backup' and opt to save to a 'Hard Disk Folder'.
    After it has been saved,exit Shrink, open the saved folder, then the 'Video_TS' sub-folder and rename the large .vob file to .mpg you now have an mpeg file you can view with Windows Media Player to work with.
