    No worries, I love it most movies will run about 1 to 1.5 gigs and the quality is not too bad.

    Personally, I had issues transcoding using Handbrake straight from a DVD. I found a work around though that works great:

    1) Use Ripit4Me combined with DVD Decrypter to rip the DVD to your hard drive.
    2) Use Handbrake to transcode the DVD video (usually the title with the longest run time) to a format the iPad can understand. There is a preset available for the iPad, but i would adjust the video quality setting. I use 1953 kbps for the average bitrate which generates videos are on par with SD movies you may get from iTunes or Digital Copy. The iPad preset uses a Constant Quality of 20, which can create files that are 1.5 to 2 times the file sizes you would expect from iTunes. Keep in mind that using bitrates too much higher than 2000 kbps won't increase the quality of the converted DVDs since you are using a standard definition source (or at least it won't look any better).
    3) Drag and drop the converted movies into the Movie section in iTunes. From there you can add posters for "album" artwork and other tags.

    For the record, all three programs I mentioned above are free and are fairly resource light considering the tasks they are performing.

    Hi Pamenamel,


    I use Cucusoft iPad Converter Suite. It can rip DVD's to your iPad as well as convert DivX, XviD, MOV, dvr-ms, rm, rmvb, MPEG, WMV, AVI to iPad video (MP4/H.264 format). Or Xilisoft's, or AimerSoft - just evaluate any trial version before deciding which one you want.

    Does this mean I can edit files converted through Cucusoft in imovie on the iPad?

    Thanks for info in this thread by the way

    I use the DVD to iPad converter from Aiseesoft. I put the DVD in the drive, pick the file and push a button. The file is converted to a iPad format. Upload it to iTunes.

    Aiseesoft DVD to iPad Converter ? Best DVD to iPad Converter software, Convert DVD to iPod touch

    I then go to Get Video Artwork to get the art work for the file and put it in the info section.

    I figure this has more than paid for itself.

    Now to figure out how to do the same thing for Blu-Ray.

    + 1 handbrake, new version 0.9.5 update the iPad preset, I suppose the (1 gen)iPad setting can work for iPad 2, if can't then you can try those 3-rd party software who update the iPad Conversion Software with iPad 2 Support like iFunia~
