DVD to Mobile

I am trying to create an XVID .avi from a DVD to retain high quality, while at the same time saving space. What preset should I choose? The one I tried did not work at all.

Greetings hellonearth. Perhaps ypu can tell us more. It would help if you told us [I]which [/I]preset of [I]what [/I]software you tried. Some info about the target device would help too. There are many ways to get from DVD to AVI.
