    I want to put some of my favorite DVDs into my iPad, but so far the only program I tried converted "The Avatar" to a 3GB file. Is this a normal size ? Can you recommend better options ? (I used Handbreak).

    I was looking today to iFunia "DVD to iPad converter" but don't wanna spend lots of money trying different products only to obtain the same results.

    Thanks !

    You may take a look at this download list, it collects 6 free DVD Video to iPad Converters for Windows and Mac, they are totally free without any limitation and watermakr. I'm sure you will find one to convert DVD to iPad. I personally prefer to using format factory.

    Handbrake - i use this for my PSP too and its absolutely brilliant - you can change formats / screen ratios / sound settings.

    and if you are 64-bit (like me :)) then you can run multiples !

    I use, and have used for a few years now, DVDFab Platinum. It now has an iPad profile that is really the best fire and forget ripping I have tried. I checked into that otherost, tried it out and some other tools, but DVDFab is the easiest. Also, it is free to try, but every thirty days you have to reinstall. But it is not a feature-blocked trial, it is full featured.

    I also have Cucusoft and think it's great. Very easy to use - in fact you can set it so all you have to do is select the DVD and then it does everything else on its own. It has great PQ and I watch both on my iPad and through Apple TV. The only issue is it won't output Dolby Digital sound. Is there any converter that will also output Dolby Digital (DD isn't necessary for the iPad of course, but I'd like it when watching via Apple TV)?

    I use CucuSoft's DVD to iPad converter and as others here have said, it works very well.

    One issue with Handbrake, it doesn't rip encrypted DVD's which is a lot of commercial DVD's.

    Also some of the "free" downloads are limited time demos. So if you only need to rip one or two DVD's right now, those will work. However, they will expire and start placing a watermark after awhile.

    With Handbrake you can output two audio streams. I usually output Dollby Surround and AC3 passthrough. The AC3 passthrough will give you Dolby Digital on the Apple TV. (However, AC3 is not supported by iTunes or Quicktime.)

    Most of DVD Ripper software can rip copyright protected DVD movies, but you should remember it is illegal to rip DVD for any business purpose. if you use handbrake, you can check with the appleTV preset

    Thanks. I am full aware of that. All I wanted is to load the DVDs I have legally bought and put some of them on my iPad for travel purposes.

    I have some DIVX videos on my PC at home and would like to load them onto my iPad ... will Handbreak work, or would you recommend another free program?

    Thanks!
