I use Xilisoft DVD ripper

However.... it's worth mentioning that I'm from Canada, and there are different laws w/r to digital media rights. From what I understand, it is essentially illegal for residents of the USA to make digital copies of DVDs - even if they own it, thanks to DMCA
, or Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
However, I'm not a lawyer, nor an American citizen, so there may be better comments pertaining to this issue.
