    Pc/mac apps, not IPad apps.

    Try Dvd shrink / handbrake

    I rip legally-owned DVDs with DVDFab, then I convert to iPad with Handbrake.

    I use DVDFab to do my kids movies after we buy them. I can just rip straight to the iPad format from there. After finish ripping it will actually ask me if I want to put it in iTunes and if I say yea, it will do the transfer to the iTunes folder.

    I was just looking at the DVDFab Website HERE - appears that the program will rip pretty much any standard DVD regardless of copyright protection code on the disc - correct?

    Now, I've been ripping my CDs for years to MP3 files for my personal enjoyment - I feel this is part of the 'fair use' issues involved in using copyright material in other than the media purchased.

    I suppose the same applies w/ DVDs, i.e. as long as the 'ripped' DVD is for your personal use, then the same principle would be similar?

    My reason for this question is that I now own about 800 DVDs and am running out of storage space (I've always hated the way they chose to package the original DVDs, i.e. a lot of wasted space) (of course those are competing w/ 3000+ CDs!) - now I could see ripping a bunch of these video discs for storage on a high-capacity hard drive.

    So, what are the opinions of all here in ripping DVDs for personal use - not a legal issue? Thanks for any thoughts - :)

    DVD to iPad for personal use

    Thanks for the ideas. I believe that copying dvd's for personal use is fine since you already own a legal copy. I have several DVDs that I want to have on my IPad and I believe that is "fair use". p

    Yes, I believe that is legal as long as you don't do while you are still in the DVD shop.
