Well i always do compress my DVD9 to 1CD or 2CD rips. And the best way to do that is using a Video compressor Codec like XVID,X264 and to do that you should download some Softwares. Like if you like to convert it to x264 or xvid then you should probably download MEGUI software which is a freeware, which means you needn't to buy this software. Although you need to update some of the files through internet and also one important thing is that you must have Dot NET Framework 2.0 installed on your computer to use this software. And one more thing my dear friend that is, its a very lengthy process, and it will consume your whole computer power and process and will take a normal 2 hours DVD compression takes around 7-8 hours on a DUAL CORE processor. You can grab these softwares and more tools through forums.doom9.org Cheeers!!!

There are numerous programs available for this type of task. If you have Nero burning ROM then you will find that the option exists in that software. Personally, I use Majic DVD Ripper, which does an excellent job and offers quite a good selection of features.
