first, you need a better OS. Win2k or XP with NTFS.
Then you need a lot of storage. I have 1.2TB for my videos. >700 titles.
how many movies are you talking?
Software wise, it's up in the air really. I use DR.Divx cause it's all in one. but it's not free either. There are other tools out there, but I'll let other tell you what they think is best.
Good luck.

dvd shrink or dvd decrypter should work for you,They let you shrink the original movie down so you can put it on a 4.7 gig disk,And the best part is they are both free to use.

I only use DVD X-Copy, If you see a copy of it now it won't have the ripper in it ,too bad the company closed it doors. this program rocks.
