    Well done Philip. Can you detail what you did so the next person with a similar query will learn what to do?
    Philip,
    I am in the same boat that you were starting out. I also use a PC and have no idea of where to even start with the dvd ripping process. I am an avid woodworker and have several instructionional project dvd's that I would like to rip/convert and view on my iPad(64g-wifi) during trips or even during lunch at work. Anything that you can share would be GREATLY appreiciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    Grant

    For Windows, the easiest solution is to buy AnyDVD. This is essentially a driver that decrypts DVDs on the fly. Then you can use any DVD ripping/remastering software you want, because the the DVD appears to not be encrypted. In the case of Handbrake, you can go direct from DVD to MP4 in one step.

    OK, I'm on PC. And whereas I'd LOVE to have a free program to rip and convert DVD's to something iPad friendly, I'm also not adverse to paying for something that will actually work. And I'm not talking about a program that requires a PhD in technology to decipher: I want something simple and one step, i.e., open the program, pop in a disc, tell the program to convert it, walk away and come back to a completed project that actually works with no further hassle.

    Does such a thing exist?

    Morning Lee,

    I'm in the same boat as many on this thread. Never had a need to rip any DVD's until the iPad waltzed into my life.

    Last night I purchased Winx DVD Platinum (29.95), that will take a DVD (encrypted or not) and take it right to mp4. Seems to me that it's a one stop shop. One click to mp4 solution.

    Now, I ran my first movie last night. So, I haven't been able to move it to iPad yet. However, I can't figure out why it won't work.

    We'll see, but you might want to look into Winx DVD. They have a free version, but if you have any copyright protected media, it won't rip those, you have to purchase the upgrade.

    Hope this helps...

    Cheers,

    M

    I can tell you the answer is yes. My recommendation to you is that after checking the tech forum and my own experience tells the most easy and stable converter would be Cucusoft dvd to ipad converter, it is not free converter like handbrake, however it does't required high degree of converter knowleadge and IT skills (I heard that even some IT geeks with phd degree having hassles with hanbrake) so by chipping some bucks, less than 30 bucks, you can have mind rested and get things done well, ie, your money will be paid off. TO get a cucusoft DVD to iPad Converter for window: DVD to iPad Converter - - iPad Converter, for mac version: DVD to iPad Converter for Mac - - iPad Converter

    Thank you for your suggestions, Gentlemen. I got antsy and purchased a copy of 123CopyDVD Gold ... after all, the box said it would do everything I needed . I just got the opportunity to try it. After several hours of pre-processing and then converting, it flashed a screen that said the conversion was successful (I thought I'd try Apple TV vs. iPod) -- but I'll be darned if I know where it went! It never gave me the option of where to save the file, and I did a "search" and can't find it.

    Like I said, I don't mind paying $$$ for something that works, but I'm getting tired of spending the money on stuff that *doesn't* work.

    Are you happy with what you purchased?

    Totally agree with what you said, mate! money can save lots of time sometimes, however, you should buy the right software instead...

    So far, my experience with DVD to iPad Converter - - iPad Converter is very good, no hussle at all and I can't be more happy with it.

    OK, last night I purchased the program ... "assuming" that if it was for iPad alone, that it would be what I needed with no problems. The registration key was a bit late in arriving, but that's OK: it got here. Then I tried to copy Avatar. It worked, but it brought it down in 3 installments, not one continuous movie. And that's not acceptable. I haven't had the opportunity to check their website yet to see what happened, but if you have any suggestions ... ?

    I finally figured out the 123CopyDVD ... it works, but if I use the settings for Apple TV, it won't copy to the iPad (iTunes says it's not the right kind of file), and if I use settings for iTouch, it pixilates badly (difference in screen size?)

    I had high hopes for a converter that was iPad specific, but not if it splits the movie.
