There are 3 basic video programs you will need to rip and convert DVDs.DVDShrink
is a free DVD ripping tool that will also rip other content including Subtitles, multiple Language tracks, special features etc. You can download it for free here:http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/dvd_rippers/dvd_shrink.cfmSUPER
by eRightsoft is a free video converter and pretty well advanced. There many video formats and countless options to choose from but the reason we use it is because SUPER has a preset option for converting videos specifically to Zune WMV format. You can download it here:http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.htmlNote:
The SUPER site is a little hard to navigate so I'll just give a quick description of what to do. On the first page scroll to the very bottom to the section called "Download and make full usage of SUPER for FREE." There's a link that says "Start downloading SUPER," click it.
On the next page, there's some red text in the main body of the page. There's also another link that says "download and use," click it.
On the third page, scroll to the very bottom to the section called "What Are You Waiting For.. Download SUPER it's FREE" then underneath the ads, there's a link. The link says "Download SUPER Setup file." Click it and it will start downloading then install it.
Sometimes it will not show the "Download SUPER Setup file" link because of too much traffic or it's unable to access the mirror. Just refresh the page or return later.VirtualDub
