    The best method I have found for converting DVDs to an iPad friendly format requires 2 programs. First is a ripper. This program will copy the DVD to your hard drive and remove the copy protection. The second program is a video encoder/converter. Here are the ones I am familiar with. They are all free.

    Mac Ripping Program: Mac the Ripper
    Windows Ripping Program: DVD Decrypter
    (may be better ones. I haven't used it in years)
    Video encoder: Handbrake

    Handbrake has a preset for AppleTV. This is the one I use to encode for my iPad.

    BTW, if you want to convert a Blueray, you can use MakeMKV to rip to an MKV file. Handbrake can then convert to an iPad friendly format.

    I am going to try some different settings on handbrake and see if I can improve the quality. I did them some time ago and for the smaller screens on my iPods they were great, but to see the HB movies next to my digital copies on the larger screen sort of takes the fun out of it.

    I never really minded the quality issues on my PowerBook, but the iPad is only at arms length so it's much more noticeable.

    Thanks but I actually like hand break, I just need to get more knowledgeable about using it.

    If you have any suggestions ipadone I am all ears.

    I had a guy telling me that if I double break it, it will come out better...... I just sort of nodded my head and said uh-huh, because I was clueless and had one of those old guy moments.

    The key for this question~

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJCINO48CiU]YouTube - DVD to iPad-How to Convert DVD to iPad and Watch Movie on iPad.mp4[/ame]
    I got the Wondershare DVD to iPad Converter, and made a video on Youtube to show how to convert dvd to iPad by using that software.

    BTW, for iPad, I found the HD format (1280*720) is more suitable for its 9.7 inch LCD touch-screen. :p Cool~~~~

    Handbrake is available on Windows as well. The most recent version is almost as good as the Mac version. Fully serviceable though.

    Several of the programs listed (handbrake) and others (AnyDVD and DVDClone Mobile) will work - but you have to adjust the settings. AnyDVD will decrypt it - then you need to run DVDClone Mobile to get it to the format - and you have to edit the .ini file to include the new resolutions.

    OR - Daniusoft has a DVD Ripper program that does everything and has formats for the iPad and every other device. Actually, it has three different resolution formats for the iPad.

    DVD Ripper - Best DVD ripper software, DVD ripping software, Convert DVD to AVI/MPEG/XVID...

    It also looks like a modern program = graphically pleasing to the eyes.

    One note - it takes it a while (hours) to decrypt, decode and create the iPad output.

    It might take less if I had used DVD Shrink first and then this program. But, this is a learning process.

    Of course Apple's tech support response is that they only support movies purchased from the iTunes store.

    There is no reason to pay for software to convert DVDs for your iPad. The articles that are linked in the posts above are just blog shills for the software developer.

    I posted this earlier in this thread, but since some may have not have seen it I am quoting it here.
