you have to edit vista registry a little, as per this guide :
rip with DVD fab in fulldsic, or main movie or customise mode as you perfer, with your hard drive as the target & with no compression for best quality.
I posted in detail about this one time , & about how to get dvd cover pictures to show up in the media center interface, but it’s maybe 200+pages back by now!
in standard XP, you just open the video_ts.ifo file inside of VIdeo_Ts folder, or drag & drop it to media center or make a shortcut to this exact file & give it a menainful name e.g. shortcut to movieABC . if you want mdia player to play them back, make it the default for handling .ifo fiiles, then just double click your shortcuts.
