    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.
