DVD to AVI or MPG

I have a non encrypted dvd a friend made for me. It is not a movie, perfectly legal to burn/rip. It does not have any security on it or anything like that.. I just want to rip the dvd into a avi or mpg file so i can share it with a friend.. It's only about 7 minutes long.. Is there software out there that I can do all of this with one click? Please lead me in the right direction. I would prefer free software or a trial that can do the full rip.. I do have nero 6.6, and I am currently trying to rip the dvd into nero digital fomrat.. Not sure what type of file it will crerate, nor do i know of the codec i weould have to give my friend in order for him to watch it... I hope i could get this done tonight... Thanks in advance!!! I heard of a program called descc or something like that.. I cant find a working copy of it.. Please lead me to a WORKING program... Not some free trial that has limitations.. I have seen many of those and do not feel like paying for a 7 minute ripped dvd. OK thanks again..

Hello PaigePeople again

The program you heard about was "DeCSS" [ http://www.firstlight.net/~clarka/decss/DeCSS.zip ] give it a try and don't forget to read the README file in it.

will get back to you soon.

here is the final answer hope it would be helpful to you.

"DVDx allows you to convert DVD to VCD2.0 or SCVD1.0 or DivX in one
step (Including multiplexing, splitting). It produces good quality
movies in MPEG1/2 format and you don't need to have 5GB or more free
on your hard disk. DVDx has been designed especialy for unexperimented
users, it is a simple and intuitive program."

One things you will need is patience and time: converting a 2 hour
movie to the mpeg 1 or mpeg 2 format (the format depends on the
quality you want to reach)  may take as long as 6 -8 hours (depending
on the power of your machine).

DVDx is available at:
( http://www.labdv.com/dvdx/ )

Softpedia mirror to download DVDx

hope this is somewhat you need.

Hey everybody, thanks for all the help... I did figure out how to rip the dvd using ImTOO DVD Ripper.. It was a trial version but allowed me to rip the whole dvd.. It only allows for about 6 minutes of time, but my video was under that time limit.. So everything worked out... I might check out some of those other programs and try and get a full movie rip going.. But for now, ImTOO DVD Ripper  worked for my needs...
