I have some Movie DVDs, there are 3-4 movies in a DVD and I want to extract some particular movies from the DVDs to save them on another CD. Please let me know how can I do that.

I am using windows xp

Which Operating System are you using? – Troggy Aug 19 '09 at 7:28

I have not encountered many commercial pressed Movie DVDs that have multiple titles, unless you're talking about ripping the extras, special features, etc.

DVD Shrink will let you do that with reauthor mode, and rip only the main movie, and even combine title tracks together (such as Lord of the Rings two-disc special editions).

For legal reasons, you'll need to use a search engine to find a download link for DVD Shrink. Their site will tell you the latest stable version, though.

However, if you're not talking about a standard Movie DVD as purchased from a store, you'll need to clarify what format the discs are in that you're working with.

I have used Handbrake on Mac OS X and Linux before with great success, and it appears they support Windows XP too.

You can download their software for free from their website.

AnyDVD + Handbrake works well on windows. On Linux/Mac OS you just need Handbrake + VLC.
