    I have tried several iPad converters but only copies 5 mins worth because it's only trial.

    Anyone know of a good converter for iPad that's free?

    There are several threads with good info about converting DVDs/video for the iPad(like this one). I recommend you search the forum.

    Without seeing the folders on your particular DVD's, it is impossible to tell you which ones to pick.

    Download Magic DVD Ripper - you can use it 5 times for free. You can choose which format you want to save your file in e.g ipod (mpeg4) which will play on your Ipad.

    If you already have an .avi file (as example) reasearch on the net and you will find a converter which you can use for free as i have one, yet am at work at the moment and can't remember the name of it.

    Hi,

    Maybe you can try free studio manager from dvdvideosolf , it free and user friendly...

    It easy to use just open the DVD & Video inside free studio manager, look for free video to iPhone converter, open which movie you want to convert, convert it, and it will auto link to iTunes, all you need to do was, syne your iPad or iPhone to the iTunes...

    Only problem it take time to convert, sometime it may take 1 hour to convert one movie, anyway is free...

    Hope this may help you...

    I used that to convert The Office DVD to the iPad format but when I play it, the quality and video is all messed up. Everything is played like how a television with a bad satellite is played. Anyone know how to fix this?

    EDIT: Nvm, FormatFactory works well
