I am interested in using Datavyu for coding toddlers in the lab. I was wondering if there are any recommendations of software that is good for converting DVDs to a digital format, and what digital format might be best to convert to? Also, are there any recommendations for a hard drive that will store all these digital files well? The videos capture 1.5 hour lab sessions. We are recording straight to DVD, so we need to convert them in order to store digitally and code with data vyu. Thanks for any information!

Handbrake is a free, open-source video transcoder that has the capability, although I haven't personally converted DVD's on it. We recommend converting videos into mp4's. As for hard drives, you might want to consider how big each of your files might be (quality, dimension and duration all affect file size) and how many videos you expect to store on the hard drive. Most commercially available hard drives, given the right size, should be fine.
