The Best Way to Capture from a DVD

I'm in a situation where I've lost the source files for a project, which now only exists in DVD format... is there any way to capture from the DVD to an AVI file? Any help would be hugely appreciated.

Your holy grail of getting files from DVDs. No need to recapture. Just extract using this program:

Great program and works terrifically. You can grab the video from a DVD into several formats including QT and AVI.

just be aware that you talking about re-compressing the mpeg2 dvd video in order to convert it to avi, so you'll be taking a pretty big hit in quality... there are ways to work with the native mpeg2 without re-compressing all of it first, if your final destination is to go back onto dvd... you'll need to match the bitrates up correctly.

Plextor box

I use the plextor box and just replay - capture back into Studio 10 or Liquid. Then re-burn. No loss of quality.
