    I now put all my DVD's on to SD card , use those SD/USB media players now , less fuss and the quality's still good enough . I rip the disks with Fab or sometimes Shrink , but I find Xillisoft is ace at converting the vobs to xvid/divx . Some programs I've tried had the audio/video out of sync.

    Have you tried getting it repaired? I have badly scratched xbox games with really heavy scratching. It took a few go's on the cd repair machines at a local games store but it worked and was only a few quid. :)

    Sorry, i know its not what you asked but it might help you. :)

    ...I use DVD-WMV as opposed to creating avi files.
