dvd back up to avi format?

  computerdiv 15:30 14 Feb 2008

Hello again folks,

I've just bought a gigaveiw multimedia player with the intension of backing up my dvd collection and watching them through that. How do I convert them to avi format so they take up as little space as possible on the hard drive?

Do i use dvd shrink?

Yes, you can use DVD Shrink, computerdiv.

I use WinAvi to make DVDs from avi, and it has the option to make avi files from various formatts.
I can't be sure where I got my copy,I'm almost certain it was a free offer with some magazine.
I've never had a problem with it
