Well, my goal of having a personal digital warehouse is one step closer today. As some of you may have remembered in the past from pics of my collection a while back, my wife and I have a rather extensive DVD collection. She and I love to watch movies or TV shows on DVD all the time--sometimes we'd rather do that than actually watch what's actually on TV. My goal has been to rip our personal DVD collection to my HD and external HD's to be able to watch them on the fly, without having to go hunt down the disc and whatnot. Today I bought an external 500GB hard drive (eventually I'm going to be picking up one or two Terrabyte drives to store our collection. Think of it like TiVo, only with DVDs. Does anyone else have a setup like this, and if so, does anyone have any comments on how much storage you use? I'm figuring anywhere from 4-8 GB per disc, which would allow me to fit approximately 62 discs worth of material per 500GB drive (assuming the max 8GB per disc). For now, I'm only going to do our most watched DVDs as I haven't built up the storage space yet. It's hard to believe this is even possible now, considering only just 10 years ago the HD on my computer was only 700MB.
