Anyone know of a good one?

I'm trying to transfer a load of the boy's DVD's to his Galaxy Tab ready for us to drive down to The Alps / Euro Disney in the summer.

I've downloaded a 2 or 3 that are supposedly free, but they want $50 to ether work at all, or not have their brand watermarked across the screen.

I've used DVD shrink for years. Hasn't been updated for a long long time but still works on most DVDs and should still be available to download.

Handbrake as stated above. You'll need VLC also.

This is good, but it isn't free (but not exactly expensive either)

Use code AISESHD for 25% off.

It really is a case of put DVD into drive, click button, done!

There is a free trial to see if you like it.

AnyDVD
DVD-Shrink
Handbrake

In that order.

By using DVD shrink you can reduce file sizes before pushing it through Handbrake making the final product even smaller - helps if you don't have humongous capacity on the final device.

I've used DVD-Shrink for several years and am very pleased with it.

I had to reinstall windows recently and wiped my disk and favourites and now can't find DVD-Shrink on the web anywhere to download. Any pointers or links gratefully received.
