    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

    Just to clarify re Magic DVD Ripper, you can open it 5 times so if you have a heap of DVD's to convert just leave it open on your PC.

    am using this with great results, not free but easy and problem free.

    Tried Handbrake and just got lots of errors maybe to do with my 64bit W7 O/S , not sure but don't care now.

    Don't give up!

    Ok, I use Handbrake for movies and it works great. But you are right on the video series conversion as it doesn't know what to do with every episode. But my niece learned to do it so I hope I can guide you (if a child can, You can, :). Remember Handbrake is free but it produces really good quality if you know a bit to set it up and it uses very well a modern processor.

    1.
    Use the Apple TV for the iPad, and iPhone & iPod Touch for these devices. Leave everything with the preset as it produce very good quality and good file size. You wont need any bigger video as from a DVD source is useless to upscale as it only increase the file and the pixels added wont produce more definition on the image.

    2.
    In order to select the episodes open the pop up "Title:". This menu will display every video source available from this DVD. But you can see the time every video last and it will display in "Duration:". Ex. Choose "1 (00:42:45)" for episode one and hit "Start". When done choose "2 (00:43:38)", etc, and so on. It depends on the series as chapters could be in the half hour format or in an hour format.

    Don't give up!
