Use the venerable and free Handbrake, this is what I use for PC and Mac. Use a 640 x 480 - 720 x 480 resolution up to a 2000 bitrate or constant quality up to 63%. Encode using .H264 for video and AAC audio codec. This will give you the best quality / reasonable file size. Read this post and I think you will find a lot information: Custom movie size for iPad using Handbrake and: Screen resolution / image quality on iDevices

Just to clarify re Magic DVD Ripper, you can open it 5 times so if you have a heap of DVD's to convert just leave it open on your PC.
This is the one i am using now, 3 free trials. work great no problems.
1clickDVD converter for ipad
am using this with great results, not free but easy and problem free.
Tried Handbrake and just got lots of errors maybe to do with my 64bit W7 O/S , not sure but don't care now.
Ok, I use Handbrake for movies and it works great. But you are right on the video series conversion as it doesn't know what to do with every episode. But my niece learned to do it so I hope I can guide you (if a child can, You can, . Remember Handbrake is free but it produces really good quality if you know a bit to set it up and it uses very well a modern processor.
Use the Apple TV for the iPad, and iPhone & iPod Touch for these devices. Leave everything with the preset as it produce very good quality and good file size. You wont need any bigger video as from a DVD source is useless to upscale as it only increase the file and the pixels added wont produce more definition on the image.
In order to select the episodes open the pop up "Title:". This menu will display every video source available from this DVD. But you can see the time every video last and it will display in "Duration:". Ex. Choose "1 (00:42:45)" for episode one and hit "Start". When done choose "2 (00:43:38)", etc, and so on. It depends on the series as chapters could be in the half hour format or in an hour format.
Don't give up!
