If anyone has a big pile of discs to rip, I'd recommend just getting a Sony VGP-XL1B off of ebay or the like. Some people have proposed wedging a Blu-ray drive in there, but I haven't seen anyone actually do it. Sony does sell a Blu-ray variant, but I believe it's rather expensive - $2000ish or so, and I'm not sure if it will work with 3rd party utilities. The VGP-XL1B can be had for a few hundred used. Although it's originally meant strictly for MCE, with the help of mediachanger.exe for XP or MTX on nix, you can easily write a script to batch-rip whatever you need to do. Load up 200 discs, let it run overnight. Sure beats manually swapping discs. Only problem is, since it uses firewire, Vista driver support is spotty - it caused my system to hang many times. I ended up connecting it to my laptop using a cardbus firewire card w/ XP. The other problem is discs with marginal read properties. The DVD-RW drive they decided to use is a Matsushita/Panasonic that doesn't tolerate scratched DVDs very well, so you may have to isolate and re-rip problematic discs. Still, even factoring that in, it's still more convenient than ripping one by one, or even multiple dvd drives going in parallel, since it's largely unattended after you do the initial load-up.
