I use DVD Shrink.  Here is a tutorial.  It only uses two pieces of software, and is generally fast.

Like most, I start with DVD-Dycrypt..  But the best part of the burning process......Nero Recode....recode will allow much tweaking of features to put on the dvd and will give you the ability to fine tune the compression on the individual sections...sooo easily..

I love this method...
I use DVD Shrink to compress the DVD to an ISO image and, immediatly after,
DVD Shrink launches NERO Burning Rom to burn that ISO and that's it !

I only have to open one program !

Best Regards !

Not that I know, unless you are running multiple intensive applications at the same time you are ripping.
