DVD compression

A quick question - I have some DVDs (unprotected-they're VHS backups actually) that I want to compress to AVI/Xvid or some similar video file.

What would be the best way to do this?

I've tried a few options so far, handbrake for example, but it only gives you a few options.

Cheers in advance guys.

You may need to try various types of software, try Mr Paco's suggestion first, I have at least five different programs I use, each one is better at certain packages than others.

Most programs will covert and save to DVD etc with differing results.

I use DVD Flick, Prism Video File Converter, Any Video Converter, Handbrake and VideoRedo, I tried AVS4You didn't suit my needs, I don't burn to Disks, I use a media player, all but VideoReDo are free, Dvd Flick works well on most files, but fails on some MKV packages, so do most of the others.

DVDShink is a great software to compress DVD files. If you want to convert the DVD vob files, then there are many free options, such as Freemake, FormatFactory,Any video converter free edition.
