Well in between setting up this new blog I’ve also been having a go at ripping my DVD movie and television collection to a more portable library. DVD ripping is essentially copying the contents of the DVD to another storage medium, ie: the computer hard drive.

The process so far has been fairly simple. Thankfully there are paid and open source program’s which do help this task along quite well. The program I’ve chosen is called Auto Gordian Knot, a free program which was the right price for my bank account. A tutorial is also available at their website and is very easy to follow.
