Before you report the question remember that its perfectly legal to make digital copies of any media you own for private use.
I plan to do some traveling when I finish college and I would like to take as much of my media with me on external drives as possible. CDs are no problem but I'm not sure how to rip DVDs and get the best possible quality. After that it just leaves book and games I might have to do with books or re buy them in ebook format unless you know a legal way to get books I already own in ebook with re buying them.
I don't think theres much hope for console games, but no CD cracks could save me when it comes to PC games. Are no CD cracks illegal?

Did you know that I have already asked a similar question once? :p
I now use format factory, it has all the popular output formats and a 100 of mobile devices output formats
first off it is questionably legal, this topic goes back and forth all the time. you can find one article about it being legal and other about it being illegal. Here is why... you CAN make a personal copy, nothing is wrong with that; HOWEVER, bypassing the DRM (what is use to protect the information) is where the questions start to arise...
but to do it, I would not use AVI format, you will take up a lot of hard disk space and you will need to carry a bunch of hard drives around which will get more clunky then a CD binder. try to use DVD images insted
there are programs out there that can be used to strip a DVD of the copy protection, but as i said before that is where the questions start to arise...
i presonaly do not know of any programs to do what you want to do, a while ago there was a program called DVD-X-COPY that will allow you to make a copy, even to an image file, then if you use a program like virtual clone drive you should be able to play it back...
however let me warn you one more time, the laws are confusing in this area, so if you do decide to do this, do so at your own risk...
