    Once you have ripped the 40GB disc to your hard drive...what is the most popular way to get the size down to 10-15GB while keeping the 5.1 sound and reasonable video quality?

    I usually delete all the extra stuff like trailers, deleted scenes and "making of" stuff. Doing that you can free up a lot of space.

    As I understand it... HD is still too new to have the benifit of programs like DVDShrink to do the dirty work - yet.

    That said... the same rules apply to HD... Once you pare it down to the main movie, if you transcode it much past 80-85% - the eyes will notice. So the best you'll ever do with a 25g main movie is about 21g. Expect HD material to inherantly eat up a LOT more drive space than legacy DVD does. Just be thankfull hard drives are growing in size quickly. :D

    I think ive only had 1 disk do 40GB the rest been under 20GB.
    I suspect when we get ConeHDDVD we will be able to strip the adverts, extra's, and all those languages not required and 15GB or less will be the norm.
