    Hi

    I'm new to this forum so hope I'm posting ok!

    I recently got a 'new Ipad' and I would like to transfer DVD's onto it. I have googled how to do it but I'm still unsure what I should use, so I'm after some personal recommendations and exactly how to do it - step by step if possible. Another problem I have is the DVD's are protected...

    Thanks in advance :)

    What i did was ripping all DVDs using Mac DVDripper Pro to my Mac (If you have a PC there are tons of similar softwares out there)
    Next i converted the files with Handbrake using the AppleTV2 preset (It´s free and available for Mac and PC).
    Last i imported them into the iTunes library and synced the movies with my iPad.

    I am doing this right now. I downloaded HandBrake and the first DVD I tried was protected so it prompted me to download another programme so now it does the whole thing with me only having to start HandBrake. As said above there are presets built into HandBrake so that you can choose your device and it will optimise the output for you.

    Quality looks good, you need to get the right setting, the default setting is OK'ish but I wanted a much higher quality output......which I now seem to have.

    Well I'm converting them for my HD TV, streaming to my iPad is secondary but I guess the ATV 2 setting may work best for you.

    EDIT: The reason I say that is the iPad setting is probably for the earlier model although I can't be certain of this.

    I've been converting DVD's all afternoon with no problem at all, using different settings to judge what I was after and everyone came out fine so something else appears to be wrong.

    I wouldn't advise buying the software until you check out the free options.

    Though the file sizes are larger, it would be nice and easier to be able to play the vobs directly like a software DVD player.

    I use progie called WinX DVD Ripper which so far has worked very well. Typically I rip two formats. One an exact copy, which is a very large file in the range of 4 to 6 Gb. This I keep on a external hard drive for my PC or other future use.
    The other I convert to a that Works well on the iPad and it gets stored on a Segate satellite portable drive.
    It also works well to convert DVD recordings that I've made of movies or tv shows but that quality is not a high a resolution as when ripping 'produced' DVDs.
    When it comes time to travel I load my of my wife's IPad with what ever movies we'd like to take.


    It offers a number of conversion types.
    Base cost was $35. Updates offered after Jan 1 cost another $35 for that calendar year.

    Free upgrades for the calendar year. From what I can tell the upgrades which come about every three weeks a countering new anti piracy technology.

    Simple to use....
