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.

DVDshrink is what I used to use. I haven't used it in a while though.
