DVD Rippers

do these programs actually compress the size of the DVD whilst keeping the same quality? which programs can you recommend? I have DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter but none of these actually reduce the size of the DVD so I can have enough space on my hard drive to store more films and other stuff. yes I know we shouldnt copy off DVDs but I am only doing it for myself. so dont start with all the illegal stuff cos I aint copying for anyone. anyway you cant associate ripping with copying if all your doing is storing it on your hard drive can you? anyway people just please tell me the best programs to get that can convert DVDs to the likes of AVI and MPEG and reduce but not losing too much quality as I know it can be done! and dont tell me to go to the videohelp website cos it dont really tell me what I am asking for. but thanks in advance people. :)

yes I know I have put this in the Consumerwatch section but I know you get more responses here...

I just joined today so im not sure what the correct way to answer questions is but i have DVD decryter and you can select it to just rip the film not the other bits on the disc when decrypter rips it does it to a Rar file unless you select file mode then its a TS video file but i dont think you can shrink it further unless you put it on DVD and let the copy software do it for you.
Hope that helped a bit,Noelg23.
