    I'm interested in ripping my own DVDs to put on my iPad but want to know what you're using. I've looked at Aiseesoft and it's ok but it creates small files for every title and I'm not sure which one to import into iTunes.

    I've used PQDVD for my iPhon/iPod and it just creates one file and is very straight forward (it doesn't support the iPad yet).

    Any suggestions? TIA

    Not sure of you are on a Mac or a Windows computer, but my suggestion would be for DVD Catalyst.

    It seems to only be made for Windows.

    It does a great job ripping and converting DVD's to video files. It has built-in formats for almost all devices I can think of and they just added the iPad to the list of presets.

    Tools4Movies, Official home of DVD Catalyst

    As far as Mac programs - I really have no idea.

    Handbrake is free and very good. Use the apple tv preset until they create an ipad one.

    Mac or Windows?

    Mac - Mac the Ripper to get source and or Visual Hub to convert

    Handbrake is also good

    Awesome thanks everyone! I decided to stick with Aiseesoft as this forum went down for maintenance shortly after I posted my question. No worries though as Aiseesoft is okay now that I've been using it for a bit. But I appreciate all of the feedback! (I'm using Windows btw - I need to remember to specify that in the future. lol)

    I need some help trying to rip the avatar dvd (not the bluray). I tried using handbrake and the appletv preset and it came out all pixelated. Other thean the appletv preset should I be changing any other settings?
