I use DVD Decrypter to, you guessed it, decrypt. (Free; Google)

I use DVD Shrink to compress. (Google)

I use Nero to burn. (Not free; Google)

By far the easiest for *noobs* is DVDShrink as it will do everything (except burn).

for n00bs huh?. . . . . . .works great for me. that software is amazing, lets you edit exactly which frames to put on author mode. DVDshrink can decrypt with its own engine and i think it even passes the burning process to nero. maybe it has its own burning engine, not sure.

No, its not *just* for newbies far fom it infact.

The first screen is simplicity itself (just dump any unwanted foreign audio tracks to up the quality, if required, but keep the original menu's and extra's) and then hit BACKUP

or

Reauthor the DVD for the more enthusiastic user

If I had to rate ANY software this would be as near a 10/10 as possible (amazing to say its free!).
