Hi all,
I need to convert DVD to AVI but all the tools I come across are difficult for the layperson to use or take an AGE to carry out the action.  Is there anything our there (freeware or not) that will do the job painlessly?  I am using Windows Vista.
Thanks

You can download open source software DVDx
DVDx allows you to convert DVD to VCD2.0 or SCVD1.0 or DiVX (AVI) or Windows Media (WMV) in one step (including multiplexing, splitting). It produces very good quality movies in AVI/MPEG1/MPEG2/WMV9 format .

Is there a particular reason that you want to convert to AVI or even Divx or Xvid? If it's for storing on a HDD, MPEG-2 is a very good codec to use -- and it's the DVD codec already in use. It uses more storage space than if you compressed with DIVx or Xvid. But H.264 is then latest high compression codec.
Super will do these conversions provided that the DVD is not copyguraded.
