Help Please , i am wondering how i can rip a dvd that for example has 18 chapters on the disc , is it possible to rip the video from the disc and for it to leave me 18 files that will be suitable for me to use with say AVStoDVD
or should i simply be able to rip the dvd using say freemake and that will keep all the chapters for me ?

Try the old DVDDecrypter. You'll need to use it in IFO mode (this is NOT the same thing as ISO mode - be careful!) and monkey with the default settings but if you rip in IFO mode, you can make it rip chapter by chapter. I don't do this kind of thing so I leave it to you to reference how to do it, but now you know what tool to use.
Do note that if your DVD is made by Sony or Disney and it was released in the last few years that DVDDecrypter may not work on it. You may have problems with a few other studios' DVDs too. However you don't have a location listed for you, so the odds of this being a problem get even lower if your DVDs are not region 1 DVDs.
Hi Jman , thank you for your reply , as it happens the dvds are not protected , i mainly just want the chapter structure to stay in place via the chapters.
If you simply want to rip a dvd and create another dvd with the same chapter info, you can use 'FILE' mode on dvddecrypter.
Then you have all the files from the original dvd with the chapter markings. If the dvd is larger than 4 gig an want to burn that on to a single disk then simply use dvdshrink.
Make use your files are stored in a video_ts folder and burn the folder with imgburn.
AVS2DVD is not the program for this sort of work.
If so, that makes no sense whatsoever. First, you may wind up with wildly varying quality between chapters (if, for example, you give them all the same bitrate), and it'll take way more time than necessary. Second, if using some all-in-one program you're liable to wind up with each chapter as a title, which isn't at all what you want. Third, it's totally unnecessary. You can extract the chapters in a number of different formats (as evidenced by hech54's picture just above this post), one of which can almost certainly be used by whatever program you're using.
But maybe I'm just misunderstanding you.
