What's the current workflow for pulling television episodes off of a DVD set and putting them back onto DVD in a new order?

American Gothic was put onto DVD in the incorrect viewing order. Worse yet, the known-flaky DVD-18 format was used; some discs have skipped on me during playback in a set top DVD player before. I would like to pull the episodes off of disc (I bought an additional DVD set just to deal with bad discs) as separate files, re-order them, and then burn them back to a reliable DVD-R brand at two episodes per disc for a problem-free, in-order, high-quality, smooth experience.
I do not require chapter menus into the episodes themselves, a simple "Episode 11, Episode 12" are all that is required. I used to use Adobe Encore for this sort of thing but I suspect it is overkill for this. I am handy enough with ffmpeg.
Target OS: Windows XP or Windows 7.
Budget: Under $100.
Target format: DVD-R.
I know playing episodes out via HDMI from my laptop could happen, or Roku, Plex, and so forth; that's not an option here.
