DVD to AVI for media player

  Mester 20:11 10 Aug 2009

In a few days I'll be taking a long haul flight and have found that the flight doesn't have the little personal tv's in the back of the seats. I'm taking my four year old so need a way of keeping him occupide.
I have a Archos media player that I want to put a few of his favourite films on. Now I can just plug the Archos into my DVD player and record direct onto the Archos' hard drive. This is all done in real time though.
Is there a free and reliable program that will let me rip just the movie part of the disk and convert it to the AVI format that my Archos plays.
I've tried one or two off the net but they don't seem to do what I want or just don't work.

TIA. Tony

P.S. I'm running Vista and my Archos is an AV420.
