DVD Rip & Editing Software?

For a conference at work, I have been asked to get video clips from a variety of movies to play in between presenters. I am not sure how to proceed. I am assuming I would need to rip the DVD to my hard-drive, then select the 30-60 sec clip needed. I have a PC that is running Windows 7. What software do I need and how do I go about doing this? I am willing to pay (within reason) for software.

I need a DVD ripper that isn't scared of scratches

I'm looking for a robust mac program to rip ISO images from DVDs. I have some discs that have minor scratches; while they play fine (with minor skips) in DVD Player, the ripping programs I have tried so far give me an error message and abort when they encounter these spots on the disc. I've tried both the disc image function in Disk Utility as well as Disco. Are there other (free) programs that will be less easily panicked?

Rip and Burn Multiple Movies to a DVD using New 0.9.4 Handbrake for Divx player?

Since Handbrake 0.9.4 seems to have gotten rid of the .avi/Xvid option, is there anyway to rip a DVD so it will play on a divx etc enabled player? If you have the time, I would appreciate a step by step breakdown. Much appreciated! (and thanks way back when for figuring out how to do this on the older Handbrake).

Best way to rip movie video to 1 stream

I want to rip a movie from a DVD to its elementary streams (.ac3 & .m2v). I can do this using the Stream Processing\Demux option in DVD Decrypter, but because the video is spread across several VOBs, I end up with several video files. So - I then have to rejoin these video segments, which I'm using the Join command in DOS for. It works fine but I'm wondering if there's an easier way to do this? I'm open to Mac options too.

Schlock & Roll! Eddie Furlong is so cool! He is HERO!

I need a rather rare video tape copied to DVD or saved as a video file. I don't have the equipment to do it myself and the tape is out of print, only released in Japan, unlikely to ever be released on dvd, and still under copyright. It's official documentation of an American child actor's Japanese music career. It is my 'happy' tape because I always feel better after I watch it. What is the best way to get this copied? Bonus points if it's cheap or free and/or local to Charlotte, NC. [more inside]

How can I help?

I have a dear pal with a coke habit that has driven him to homelessness. He is not a US-native; he grew up in pre-change Eastern Europe. He does have a green card. He has had trouble hiolding job and appears to have never received training in money-management issues either in the US or at home. I do not want him to die, which he will surely do this year if things do not change. What can I do?

Help me get my Deltron MP3s, My CD Will Not Rip...

For some reason my copy of Deltron 3030 [The Instrumentals] CD just will not rip to mp3 without serious artifacts appearing on the mp3 version.

Or on the other hand, anyone know how I might rip these successfully? [more inside]

MP3 Ripping Minefield

I'm looking to rip my 300 CDs on to my computer in preparation for an portable audio player. What is the best quality compressed format for music? I'm thinking MP3, as its universal - but as far as I can see there are different types of MP3 driver/convertor formats. Help me through the minefield! (As a bonus question, what's considered the ultimate 20gig(ish) MP3 player at the moment?)
