Converting DVD to View on Nokia N95 8GB

I am really struggling to find a neat simple way of converting my DVD collection to suitable files (MP4) to watch on my phone.

There must be a way to compress the file down to circa 300-500 MB and convert it at the same time.

Any suggestions of good software to do this? I have tried various combinations but all have been unsatisfactory, i have used:

DVD Shrink
Videora
DVD Decrypter
Nokia software bundled with phone, but that needs an existing video file, not a DVD.

Thnaks for the post but that programme wont work on copy protected DVD's, so a bit of a non starter really.

Ditch,

I shall give it a go and report back, cheers.

Super and DVD shrink both do that, but what you have just said makes my point.

I own dozens of DVD's, i own a Nokia N95 with a screen large enough it will can play video and be watchable when i am stuck away from home overnight. Why on earth does there not appear to be ONE piece of software that will take a DVD convert it to a suitable format, compress it and work with the copy protection software.

I am bored of having to use three programmes to convert one film, there must be a solution out there!?
