Copying DVD to HDD

I seem to be having trouble doing this correctly in order to create a torrnt file on my HDD. I want to take my DVD and get it into the right folders so I can create a video torrent. What are the proper steps
I'm goin' where the water tastes like wine.

Re: Copying DVD to HDD

there's some more info in the FAQ, or ask here if you need some more details.

also, you might want to test that the dvd is okay when re-burned... one guy I get standalone transfers from uses a deck (I think its sony) that adds copy protection to home-burns.. so it needs to be extracted with DVD decrypter.
