newbie questions

I have some experience with editing, but right now, I cannot seem to figure out how to rip a DVD.
I need mpeg or avi files to edit using adobe premiere elements - and no matter what I try, I fail.

I tried prism, but the result is a totally pixellated file I cannot use.
Then, there's MPEG Streamclip which keeps telling me that whatever it is that I'm trying to rip is 'too short'.

What am I doing wrong? What software do I need?
