Quick question, may be beyond the capabilities of MakeMKV though, is it possible to compress the DVD/BluRay so it doesn't take as much HDD space?
I've seen pretty decent compressed HD quality films at around 5-10GB.
MakeMKV will not compress the video. You can use Handbrake to do that. It also has a cli, so could be added to the script to automatically compress the files after MakeMKV has done it's thing. I haven't added this, as it would complicate the script (everyone will want different levels of compression for example, the time it takes to re-encode a file is quite long and most wouldn't want to wait, or wait as long etc etc), but please take a look here for the handbrake commands.
These could be added after the renaming done in the current script, to then re-encode the video to a smaller file. The nice thing is, you could use the variables in the current script in your handbrake command, so the work of determining the DVD path, the volume name, the output path is already taken care of with AutoRipDVD.bat.
Handbrake is Open Source and can be downloaded here: http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php
