Ripping DVDs?

First of all, these are DVDs of high school football games, and I own them, so there should be no copyright issues.

I’m trying to make a football highlight film, culled from dvds of the games shot during the season. Is there a utility on windows that will do this? I thoguht media player would, but upon closer inspection it seems it will only rip music CDs. Any freebie utilities on the web? advice?

Personally I use AnyDVD for ripping disks to hard drive, pinnacle studio for video editing and CloneDVD2 for burning. These aren’t freeware.

You’ll find plenty more guides and free software for your needs from that site.
