Not sure about derbyfc's recommendation as I've never used it (looks like it's just burning software), but STREETWORK's recs only rip Audio CDs.

i think it works the same way as shrink in terms of creating a iso back up of the dvd

One to look at then, derbyfc. ;)

ok cool shrink looks like a good one, ill give it a try, thanks for the help

is there anyway to extract the video and audio together so you can just watch them on your computer? cos I may be wrong but it looks like shrink seperates the two - ok for burning onto a new disc but not for just keeping movies on your comp.

it doesnt split them as such,
if you back up to hard drive as files the video file contains both audio and video.
alternatively,after "open disc" select back up,then in back up target,drop down menu,select iso image,you will then have a disc image.
