how do i save DVD to my computer?

is there a way? i'd like to take some of the movies ive got on disk and have them readily available (read backed up in case someone walks away with them) on my computer... ive got XP media center, so i'm assuming it's gotta be possible.

there are a ton of different ways. Just google, DVD Backups.

I use a Mac and use Handbrake. A windows version was recently put out but I don't know how good it is. Just Google Handbrake and DVD and you'll find it.

Best of all, it is freeware.

Technically it is not illegal to make a backup of a DVD you own. The illegal part is breaking the encryption put on the dvds. Problem is most dvds have the encryption.
